Your Burn Injury Claim
Burn injuries aren't only an excruciatingly painful and traumatic experience, the financial and practical ramifications of such an injury are far-reaching:
- Emergency room bills
- Medical bills
- Physical rehabilitation
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
Depending on the severity of your burns, you may have been scarred and disfigured. The burns may be so bad that your nerves, muscles or organs were also damaged. The devastating emotional, physical and financial toll this has upon you is unacceptable and unjustified. Let our lawyers fight to hold the responsible person accountable.
Types of Burns
Burns are categorized by severity:
- First-degree burns: burn the outer surface of your skin. Redness and inflammation are common symptoms. First-degree burns are not typically involved in personal injury cases. In some situations, medical care may be required, so you should contact our attorneys to find out if your first-degree burn could be grounds for a claim
- Second-degree burns: reach deeper, beneath the outer layer of skin. Your skin can be badly damaged as a result. Your skin may blister and swell. Medical treatment may be needed, and you may be able to pursue compensation in a claim
- Third-degree burns: burn through the layers of your skin. Third-degree burns are very serious and lawsuits often involve this severity of injury
- Fourth-degree burns: burn through the skin and reach the organs and muscles. These severe burns are truly catastrophic and require treatment in a hospital in every case
Construction accidents, motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle wrecks and workplace fires are just a few of the ways our attorneys have seen these cases arise. If you were burned because of someone else's careless behavior or inaction, we will fight to recover maximum compensation on your behalf.
