Burn Injury Attorney
A burn injury may be one of the most painful and devastating injuries a person can sustain. Burn injuries not only result in physical pain, but also emotional and psychological pain.
Severe burn injuries can require weeks, months, or even years of painful recovery and intense therapy, which can include skin grafts and reconstructive surgeries. Because of the disfiguration that can result, the emotional scars from burns can last a lifetime.
Burn injuries can range from mild to severe and can be caused in many ways, including:
- Car Accident,
- Commercial Trucking Accident,
- Use of a Defective Product, or
- Unsafe Working Conditions.
How We Serve Our Clients
If you or a family member has suffered from a burn injury caused by the negligent actions of someone else, we will serve you with the compassion and understanding you deserve. We will thoroughly investigate your accident in order to determine who was responsible and work toward holding them accountable for the full measure of damages they caused. Toward this goal, we carefully examine accident reports, hire experts and accident reconstructionists if needed, and consult with doctors and medical professionals to learn about the medical treatment that has been undertaken and the medical treatment that is likely to be required in the future.
Recovering for Future Medical Treatment and Pain and Suffering
When litigation is filed, there is only one opportunity to recover for all damages and injuries, including those likely to result for future burn injury treatment (such as skin grafts) and the resulting pain and suffering, as well as lost wages and other costs. Under the law, injury victims are entitled not only to past damages, but also all those that are likely to be sustained in the future.
As a result, with burn injury cases, it is particularly important to work with physicians and other medical providers to learn about the likely treatment that will be required, including the surgeries, rehabilitation, and associated matters. Because the treatment for burn injuries can be incredibly painful, once the course of medical treatment is known, it’s important to convey these aspects to jurors so that they may appreciate that the pain and suffering for a burn injury victim is not over just because a trial may be taking place. This is the only way that injury victims may be fully compensated.
