Settlements in Burn Injury Cases Should Never Be Rushed
Because it can take many years or even decades to make the maximum medical recovery from burn injuries, it is essential that a burn survivor's personal injury attorney avoid the temptation to recommend a settlement that might prove inadequate to support the entire costs of a long convalescence and long-term therapy.
It might take several rounds of surgery even to make an accurate prognosis for recovery. Infection can always threaten setbacks. Psychological trauma related to pain, discomfort, and physical disfigurement must also be factored into your damages demand. Our experience with the proof and presentation of complex damages claims can help protect you from the risk of an inadequate settlement or understated damages demand.
Our experience with a broad range of personal injury situations can help you establish liability and recover the damages you need in burn cases related to the following:
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- SUV rollovers and fuel-fed fires
- Nursing home accidents
- Liquid propane gas tank explosions
- Chemical burns or explosions at work
- House or apartment fires
- Scalding accidents
While our advocacy on your behalf can't minimize the pain or discomfort of a long recovery from serious burn injuries, our support can help you and your family in many ways while we pursue our goal of maximizing your financial compensation.
Most often, we take accident claims on a contingent fee basis. This means that unless we recover a settlement or verdict for you, we will not charge a fee. We collect no attorney fees unless we recover a settlement or verdict for you.
