Thermal burn injuries are caused by exposure to hot surfaces, flash, flames and steam, electrical burns due to high voltage electricity and chemical burns from exposure to corrosive substances that are highly acidic or basic. All burn injuries affect living tissue on the body and mostly are external. These can be short term and or long term effects depending on the intensity of the heat, voltage or chemicals and exposure involved. Victims suffering from third degree burns often require painful and extensive treatments including surgery and skin grafting. Long term effects can include scarring of skin tissue, damage to hair follicles prohibiting regrowth, loss of cartilage and even sight or hearing. Physical effects can sometimes be repaired, but often the most tragic result is the emotional distress and trauma left for a victim to manage. A remaining scar on the skin often reminds the victim of the incident causing anxiety, distress and even depression.
Burn Recovery is often easier than recovering financial losses caused by the incident itself. Simply filing insurance claims to pay for medical bills or replace loss of personal items can be a lengthy and tedious process. Not all insurance companies are easy to deal with and often deny a burn victim their full right to compensation. Burn accidents tend to involve some type of negligence or liability as well and all liable parties involved will need to be held accountable. Hiring one of our burn injury lawyers will help you deal with not only the insurance companies, but identify any and all claims that can be made.
