The personal injury lawyers of McNicholas & McNicholas have handled multiple cases for victims who have suffered severe burns from a catastrophic accident. The effects of a serious burn injury can be both physically and emotionally devastating due to the disfiguring of the skin. Even with today’s medical advances in wound treatment, therapy and plastic surgery, a burn victim is often left with permanent emotional and physical scarring. Although it can be a traumatic experience surviving a residential fire, chemical explosion, gas leak, electrical burn or natural fire, there is help available to assist you in the recovery process. The burn injury attorneys of McNicholas & McNicholas offer support, legal assistance and professionalism for you and your family.
According to the American Burn Association, about 3,400 people die each year from fire, burns, or smoke inhalation and about 40,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized every year for burn-related injuries. These injuries and deaths result from residential fires, motor vehicle crashes and other catastrophic incidents. Some of the most common types of burns are first degree, second degree and third degree burns.
Your recovery plan and process will depend on the severity of the burn and may require compensation for your personal trauma, pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, future medical bills, permanent scarring, disfigurement, ongoing therapy and future surgeries. Sometimes infections may occur due to the severity of your burn, which could lead to other health issues and compromise your immune system. It is important to get help right away from burn injury specialists who can help you navigate your way through the medical bills, emotional trauma and legal advice as well as additional documents you may need to support your case.
