BURN INJURY

Are You the Victim of a Serious Burn Injury or Fatality As a Result of an Accident?

Our Advice Is Essential!

Burn injuries and deaths can be the result of a number of unfortunate accidents including those that occur in the workplace or on the job, within one’s residence, as the outcome of a motor vehicle accident or other circumstances.

Burns vary in degree of intensity from first degree, the least serious; to, second degree, the most painful; to third degree, the most debilitating and severe, damaging multiple layers of skin including associated nerves, which reduces the level of pain. However, recovery from a third degree burn is a long, painstaking process with major expense, physiological ramifications and risk of other problems.

What Is the Outlook for the Future?

Besides causing the victim serious medical implications which can take a very long time and significant expense to remedy, residual complications can develop which impact the victim and family members for years to come. These can include major financial impact; loss of ability to maintain employment with loss of income; strain on other family members to address the long-term needs for ongoing medical care for the victim’s recovery; as well as major psychological problems for the victim as a result of loss of quality of life and self-esteem due to disfiguring scars, physical disability and depression.

In the case of burn injury fatalities, survivors must cope with the death of the victim resulting in long-term mental anguish; loss of companionship, services and other contributions to family stability; and whatever impact this has made on their lifelong financial security.
