Burn Injury Lawyers

Burn injuries are among the most terrible to endure. Victims often suffer serious pain, disfigurement – and even after a lengthy recovery process they may never be able to resume their normal life. Some burn injuries cannot be prevented, but many occur as a result of negligence.

When a burn injury happens as the result of faulty equipment, an unsafe work environment, or even children left unattended with dangerous products, legal action may be needed to recover damages for victims and their families.

More About Burn Injuries

While burn injuries can occur as a result of numerous factors, the most common causes of burn injuries include:

  • Car accidents
  • Structural fires
  • Electrocution or electrical burns
  • Defective heaters and household products
  • Work accidents
  • Accidents involving unsupervised children
  • Thermal (steam or liquid) burns
  • Chemical burns; and
  • Electrical burns.

Burns are classified according to the damage inflicted on the skin, including:

  • 1st-degree burns – affecting the outer skin layer, they will typically heal within a week or so.
  • 2nd-degree burns – these penetrate the outer layer of skin to the deeper layer known as the dermis. Some 2nd-degree burns heal naturally within 14 days, but others will run deeper into the skin and require 3-4 healing weeks, often leaving scars.
  • 3rd-degree burns – penetrating the subcutaneous tissue, these often require skin-grafting or other reconstructive measures.

Burns can be traumatizing and victims often struggle with emotional and physical recovery. Long-term burn-injury complications can include:

  • Extreme pain
  • Organ damage
  • Body chemistry damage
  • Temperature-change sensitivity; and
  • Disfigurement.

While some of these tragic injuries are no one’s fault, when a burn injury occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence, victims are entitled to file claims for compensation. Treatment for burn injuries is expensive. Third degree burn victims are often hospitalized for lengthy stays, resulting in medical bills in excess of $100,000. If you or a loved one has suffered burn injuries and someone else is to blame, you may be eligible to file a claim for damages including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental stress; and
  • Permanent disability.

However, insurance companies are often quick to deny claims associated with burn injuries. They know the extent of the costs involved, and will try to minimize the financial impact on their bottom line. Victims need help from an experienced law firm with the skills to offer effective representation.
