Burn injuries are some of the most painful injuries that can be sustained. Typically, they result in excruciating pain, not only at the time of the injury, but often through painful rehabilitation and subsequent surgery, which can include skin grafts and significant reconstructive surgery.
A big part of a burn injury legal claim is understanding the complete scope of your injuries and the impact that they have on your life and the lives of your family. This often includes retaining fire experts, physicians, psychologists, economic experts, and other professionals to help establish the cases for liability and damages for our clients. Many severe burn cases require ongoing surgeries, rehabilitation, and psychological treatment.
After the wounds are healed, scarring and disfigurement may interfere with movement, performing daily functions, and one's self-esteem. For many, the effects of a serious burn injury will last a lifetime. This is why it is especially important to develop a strong case for the future damages which may be incurred. We have had significant experience in representing those who have had severe and permanent life-altering injuries. We have recovered millions of dollars for these clients, including a settlement of more than $39 million for one case in 2011, and a verdict of more than $18 million in another case.
