Have you or a loved one suffered a severe burn injury? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
Severe burn injuries are considered a catastrophic injury. Every year in the United States, there are approximately ten thousand deaths and more than two million injuries as a result of severe burns. Most burn injuries happen in the home, and the victims are usually either the elderly or young children.
Some of the more common ways that burn injuries can occur are scalding burns from hot liquids, water heater explosions, gas explosions, fires in car accidents, burns from chemicals, cigarette lighter burns, and burns from wearing flammable clothing.
There are different degrees of burns:
- First Degree Burns – These are the least severe type of burn. The burn is superficial and has only caused reddening of the skin which looks similar to a sunburn.
- Second Degree Burns – These are more severe and these type burns completely destroy the entire outer layer of skin.
- Third Degree Burns – These are the most severe, and results in all layers of the skin being destroyed. Third degree burns often require grafting of skin from other parts of the body onto the damaged area.

Here are some testimonials from satisfied clients we have represented in the past.
Severe burns require extensive surgeries and hospital time, and the victim’s appearance may never be the same again. The victim has a long road ahead. Severe burn injuries are extremely painful since the individual has lost their outer layer(s) of skin, or perhaps even all layers of their skin. They will have to endure numerous surgeries and skin grafts, and will most likely suffer emotional upheaval and depression.
When a burn injury happens because of the carelessness or negligence of another, the results are devastating for the person injured, physically and emotionally, but also financially. The medical bills in a burn injury case are tremendous, both for treatment rendered at the time of the accident as well as the necessary ongoing treatments and surgeries, and any other medical care that will be required in the future, perhaps even for the rest of their lives.
The victim will in most cases have to live with severe disfigurement, which can lead to extreme depression and isolation. There will be money worries as well. Perhaps the victim was the main breadwinner for their family and they can no longer work. The extensive time missed from work may cause job loss. Perhaps there is no money to pay the monthly bills due to lost wages.
