Burn injuries often result in extraordinary levels of pain and suffering, both for the victim and the victim's family. The average person cannot fathom the horror of sustaining severe burn injuries and the daily struggle on the long road to recovery. For those who live through the aftermath of a burn-related tragedy, though, the nightmare is all too real.
Severe burn injuries require extensive medical treatment — skin grafts, surgeries and the like. The rehabilitation process alone can be a difficult mountain to climb, particularly for those whose injuries have cost them their mobility. The financial and emotional toll of burn injuries can be intense. And for some, the disfigurement and disability may be permanent.
Pursuing Justice For Burn Injury Victims
Burn injuries can result from any type of accident. Common causes of first-degree burns, second-degree burns and third-degree burns include:
- Car accidents, truck accidents and other types of motor vehicle accidents, which can sometimes set vehicles ablaze
- Explosions or exposure to intense heat at industrial sites or construction sites
- Plane crashes that culminate in fires or explosions
- Chemical burns resulting from exposure to acids or other corrosive substances
- Arson, house fires or building fires
If the negligence of another contributed to your burn injuries, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim to recovery financial compensation for your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and other expenses. We at The Chestnut Firm can help you pursue justice against those responsible, holding them accountable for their wrongdoing.
