Examples of Accidents Resulting in Burns
Our lawyer has helped people recover compensation for their injuries, including payment for medical, rehab and therapy expenses; lost past and future wages and lost earning capacity; and pain and suffering. Our clients have included people injured in accidents such as:
- House fires
- Chemical exposure
- Petroleum product explosions
- Domestic accidents such as exploding pressure cookers, gas grill propane tanks, malfunctioning hot water valves, burning from an improperly wired hair dryer, and other defective or dangerous home electrical products
- Industrial accidents caused by defective welding torches and other tools
Why Burn Victims Need Compensation
Whether the accident was caused by a leaking propane tank, a burning cigarette or a defective product, our attorney can help. We have obtained compensation for people who suffered third-degree burns over much of their body and spent many months in burn units. They have endured reconstructive plastic surgery, skin replacement and surgical debridement. They have lived with the ever-present danger of infection, the psychological damage of facial scarring, and the need to be attentive to sun and other environmental damage. They have struggled to cope with multiple surgeries and other medical procedures.
Contact Us for Help Securing Compensatory and Punitive Damages
When negligence or misconduct is the cause of suffering such as this, we are able to help burn injury clients obtain compensation for past and ongoing expenses, which can be considerable. If the accident that caused the injury was the result of criminal behavior, we may be able to obtain punitive damages in addition to those intended to compensate for the losses and costs.
