Aviation accidents: You have options

Many Arizona residents prefer to travel by air, and some even enjoy being in the cockpit themselves. Whether you travel for business, leisure or recreation, the chances of an aviation accident and what would happen afterward have likely crossed your mind. You may have even already been injured and trying to understand your legal options.

How severe are burn injuries?

Burns can be extremely severe, sometimes requiring skin grafts, multiple surgeries, long-term rehabilitative treatment and/or physical therapy. For third-degree burns, longer hospital stays may be needed because of the increased risk of infection. In 2010 alone, there were 450,000 burn injuries that required medical treatment, according to the American Burn Association. This was just the number of burns that were treated in emergency rooms and hospitals. Many more minor burn injuries are treated at home or in doctors' offices or clinics.
