There is perhaps no more severe personal injury than a catastrophic burn suffered as the result of another person's negligence or misconduct. These cases are extraordinarily tragic, and we've seen entirely too many of them over our decades of experience.
Innocent victims of burn injuries have to deal with excruciating pain, not to mention the emotional and psychological strain that comes from dealing with such a horrifying injury. Furthermore, a severe burn injury can make it difficult to work and earn a living, only increasing the financial effect of such a catastrophic event.

Burn injuries can have many causes, but most of the ones we see are the result of auto accidents or similar wrecks. When a massive vehicle full of gasoline collides with another such vehicle, burn injuries are always a danger.
Burn injuries range in severity from first-degree burns, which are usually relatively mild and can be treated with basic medical care, to third-degree burns, which are severe, dangerous, debilitating and disfiguring.
The Cost of Burn Injuries
Anyone dealing with a third degree burn is almost certainly looking at a lifetime of work. These injuries can cause significant disfigurement, such that a victim might be uncomfortable showing themselves in public. And these injuries can make the simple tasks of moving around and working quite difficult.
As the victim of a severe burn injury, you might be faced with:
- Multiple surgeries, such as skin grafts
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Psychiatric help
None of this is cheap. The sad reality of the American medical system is that for most victims, a medical catastrophe quickly becomes a financial one as well.
But you need to treat your burn injury, and you need to do so with the aid of skilled, experienced medical providers. For this, you need money, and it's not right that you have to pay for someone else's mistake.
Our experienced lawyers will provide you with the individualized attention you need and use our decades of work to pursue the compensation you deserve. We understand the seriousness of your condition, and we will pursue your case with that understanding in the forefront of our minds.
