Burn injuries are among the most painful injuries. Victims must often endure excruciating pain, multiple surgeries and skin grafts, and a very long recovery period. The injured person may be highly vulnerable to infection. Burn injuries leave scars that seldom can be fully corrected with cosmetic surgery. The psychological damage can be as painful as the physical damage. If the victim is seriously disfigured as a result of the burns, he or she may experience a range of emotional hardships.
At Gregg, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, we help clients with serious burn injuries. We build strong cases for compensation, consulting with burn experts, fire experts, vocational experts and life care planners to determine the extent of the injury and the liable parties. Our lawyers also calculate the full cost of lifetime care and treatment, lost wages and other damages that can have a significant effect on the victim and his or her family.Causes of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can result from:
- House fires
- Commercial building fires
- Chemical fires
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective products
- Workplace accidents
- Improperly maintained property
