Burn injuries are some of the most painful and disfiguring. Although we typically associate burn injuries with fire, they also can result from exposure to scalding fluids, chemicals, or electricity.
No matter the cause of your burn injuries, your ability to recover damages for medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any potential scarring may depend on a prompt investigation into the cause of your burn injuries so that the necessary evidence can be collected and preserved. Additionally, burn injuries are unique in that their value in terms of damages is often measured not by the amount of medical treatment needed to treat the injury, but by the lasting effect the injuries have on the person long after the medical treatment has finished.
