If you have experienced a burn as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence, then enlisting the services of Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys can help you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
Burns can be a devastating injury with lasting implications. Victims of these injuries often experience significant impact on their daily lives and struggle to return to normal activities. Working with a burn injury lawyer who can act on your behalf can help ease part of the burden, as they work to ensure compensation for medical bills, emotional pain, loss of wages, cosmetic damage, and any other related losses.
Recovering from a serious burn injury can be a life long process. It is fairly common for an individual who has suffered this type of injury to experience major and lasting changes to their quality of life. Fair compensation accounts for not only the initial expenses related to treating the injury, but also for all future expenses. Your attorney will understand this distinction and will work to ensure you receive a full and complete settlement.
Many people have questions about the specific amount of a settlement and what is considered fair. This is determined by the severity of injuries. Those victims who suffer from third-degree burns, the most serious type of burn injury, often face a lifetime of related health issues. This reality means that larger settlements are tied to third-degree burns. Regardless of the severity of your burn, you are entitled to fair compensation for your injury. This includes compensation for:
It is important to note that most attorneys choose not to represent patients experiencing first-degree burns as these injuries typically heal quickly with no lasting implications and with no scarring. Those patients who suffer second-degree burns, especially if they cover a large percentage of their body, often face more significant treatment costs and extended care.
Other heat related injuries such as smoke inhalation should also be considered for damages even if burns are not present, as these can require long term care and are known for the accruement of significant medical bills.
At Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, we understand these implications and understand that you are likely facing a long term care plan that could potentially change your quality of life. We will strive to handle your case with both professionalism and empathy as we seek to secure full and fair compensation for your injuries.
