Hot Water Burn Injury Lawyer in Boulder

There are well-known standards for hot water heater temperatures and safety. A few degrees can be the difference between debilitating burns and safe water. The length of time and age of the person can affect the severity of burns. Young children and elderly persons scald more quickly than an adult. Furthermore, an elderly, disabled or injured person may slip in a tub and suffer burns from exposure to hot water when they cannot get up.
