Whether a burn was suffered in a fire, or it was a chemical or electrical burn injury, if it was caused by an act of negligence, the victim has the right to compensation. Not only are these injuries extremely painful, they are very difficult to recover from and difficult to evaluate. Repairing burned muscle and skin may require multiple surgeries that take place over the course of many years. This means that the trauma faced by burn victims does not end after the burn itself, making it all the more important that victims get full and fair compensation for what they have had to experience, much less the lasting effects of the burn.
We represent people who have suffered all types of burn injuries. We understand how important it is to stand beside the people we represent, considering the high stakes in these cases. We strive to get all of the money necessary to cover the burn victim’s costs – past, present and future.
As part of a burn victim’s medical treatment, we make certain that the injuries are looked at by a cosmetic surgeon. The surgeon will be able to outline what types of procedures will be necessary to repair the damage, including the costs. Some of these procedures may not take place until years after the accident, particularly when children are the victims. While an insurance company’s immediate offer may seem reasonable, it may not cover all of these procedures, much less the potential permanent effects of a burn injury. Talk to our office about your case as soon as you can. There is no financial obligation. You pay no fee for our services unless we recover money for you.
