Burn injuries are some of the very worst injuries that any person can be forced to endure as they affect a person emotionally and physically. Oftentimes, burn injuries result in the need for extensive medical care that may last a life time. According to the American Burn Association, there were nearly 500,000 burn injuries that required medical treatment in 2015. This statistic is staggering considering the amount of precautions that are available to prevent burn injuries. However, burn injuries continue to occur every year, oftentimes because of another's negligence.
If you or a family member has suffered a burn injury because of the negligence of another, you have legal rights to file for compensation. While your suffering may make financial restitution seem like an unnecessary step, it can help you to receive the very best care and rehabilitation, which can ensure a healthy and positive recovery.

Causes of Burn Injuries
While burn injuries can occur because of mistakes at home, they frequently occur because of the negligence of another that caused an accident. Oftentimes, they happen because of the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Boat accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
In addition to suffering a burn because of these types of accidents, it is very common for people to suffer burn injuries during surgery because of medical malpractice. If a surgeon or doctor makes a mistake and it leads to your suffering, you have just as much a right to file a suit as if you'd suffered your burn injury in a car accident.
Justice for the Injured
If you've been injured by a burn, you may be suffering horrible injuries that may take months and even years to remedy. Treatments can include multiple surgeries, skin grafts, prescription drugs, multiple types of rehabilitation, and lifelong care in some cases.
Our attorney will determine who was at fault for your suffering in order to seek the maximum amount of compensation for you and your family. These charges may include recompense for the loss of your ability to work and, therefore, your loss of employment benefits as well. Our attorney will take everything into account and ensure that he sues for an amount that will at least keep you comfortable as you recover from your horrible injury.
