82 Year-Old Dies From Burn Injuries She Suffered In Apartment Fire.

While all burn injuries, no matter the severity, have the potential to cause discomfort or pain, third and fourth-degree burns are the most severe types of burns and have the potential to do serious bodily harm and can even lead to death. If you’ve been burned because of another person’s negligence, you may not know what to do to begin to recover. This is why you should turn to an experienced burn injury attorney at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm to get you through this complicated process and to help you recover fair and just money damages.

Robert L. Barb, an 82 year-old from Cumberland, Maryland, lived in an apartment complex with his wife, Roberta, also 82 years of age. On the night of March 8, 2018, Robert went out to dinner with friends. Roberta, as she often did, stayed at home, due to a medical condition that prevented her from walking for long periods of time. After dinner, Robert returned home and heard the fire alarm from his building blaring. Robert, then unsure where the fire was, rushed into his apartment where the fire had started and carried his wife into the hallway.

Roberta was then taken by ambulance to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center before being transferred to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center to be treated for 2nd and 3rd-degree burns covering her entire body. The treatment ultimately didn’t work, and Roberta died that night at the hospital.
