Second- and third-degree burns are extremely painful, can cause permanent scarring and impairment, and often require extensive rehabilitation. If you or a loved one has suffered a burn injury because of the negligence of another, or because of a car accident, gas explosion or fire, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical and rehabilitative expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
The nature of burn injuries and the rehabilitation required make burn cases, especially burn injuries to children, particularly challenging for a burn injury attorney. You need a lawyer who understands what it takes to make out a case for personal injury compensation for the long-term consequences of burn injuries.
