Some burns will result in minor skin irritation and may require medical attention for pain management. These are often best handled through traditional insurance channels. However, serious injury resulting from third or fourth-degree burns commonly demands the attention of an accident attorney.
Third and fourth-degree burns can cause a host of damages, including:
It can take quite some time for a burn victim to get back on their feet after suffering the injury. Even then, victims might struggle with significant physical limitations and pain for the rest of their lives. Seeking compensation from the individual responsible for a burn injury might be the most important thing a victim can do.
Still, navigating an injury claim or lawsuit can be challenging, particularly if you are dealing with a severely painful injury. If you have sustained a burn injury in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering. The best way to learn if you are able to seek these damages is by discussing your case with an experienced injury attorney. The burn injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm are on hand to answer your questions, discuss your rights, and help you determine if you have cause to file suit.
These more severe burns often require lengthy hospitalization followed by a residency in a burn ward. Infection, dangerous fluid loss, and death are all possible complications. And without an injury attorney on your side, you will likely never be compensated for even a fraction of these real-life consequences.
Insurance companies often set limits on their settlements, offering victims of burn injury a set amount regardless of actual damages. The accident attorneys at The Cochran Firm place no such limitations on damages and aggressively pursue maximum compensation to ensure our clients get every penny they are due.
