The horror and pain of a burn injury can cause extreme trauma for the person harmed as well as their family members.
When a burn injury is caused by or attributed to, other parties, the burn victim has the absolute right to seek compensation for damages from that other person or company.
This could be a manufacturer of a defective smoke alarm or an electrical contractor who left live wires exposed or a product malfunction or item that did not have the proper warnings. E-cigarettes are just one example of more recent products that have caused burns and are the subject of legal action.
Care for burns is one of the costliest areas of health care and usually involves lengthy hospital stays, multiple operations, and high bills. Third-degree burns are especially severe and painful, often requiring months of treatment.
Add to this your lost wages and the emotional harm you suffered, and your burn injury case may be worth a substantial amount of money.
Although no amount of money will ever undo the harm suffered by burns, it can help cover the enormous financial needs during and after recovery.
The process of filing for compensation is complex in these cases. Hiring a Burn Injury Lawyer will allow you to recover while your legal team handles the paperwork filing, negotiating, documenting, and gathering of evidence, to meet the deadlines and requirements.
