Burn injuries can be caused many ways, including explosion, fire, flammable furniture, defensive product, laser hair removal, heat and electrical problems. Many burn victims suffer lung injury from inhaling smoke or chemicals.Burns can be terribly painful and may result in permanent disfiguring and scarring. Emotional consequences of dealing with the physical aspect of burns are just as difficult. In severe cases amputation of affected parts or death occurs. If a burn victim dies, the surviving spouse and next of kin can sue the responsible party. We can help with the legal needs of burn survivors and their family members to get justice.
We can help you file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit to seek financial compensation for medical bills, pain and emotional suffering, loss of potential future earnings, loss of consortium, loss of care and companionship, loss of wages, funeral and burial costs, and more. If we can show by clear and convincing evidence that the acts of the at-fault party showed deliberate disregard for the rights or safety of others we could also win punitive damages, which can be much more than the award and are meant to teach defendant a lesson to protect the public from similar occurrences.
