A serious burn injury is one of the most painful events you can face in your lifetime. Not only is the pain unbearable, but you may experience scarring and disfigurement which may cause serious psychological trauma. Furthermore, the hospital bills for a burn injury can be financially devastating.
If your burn injury was caused by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. The attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers are here to fight for your rights and ensure that you receive a proper settlement in a timely manner.
Causes of Burn Injuries
There are countless factors that can cause a burn injury, but when another’s negligence leads to this catastrophic injury, someone must be held accountable. Burn injuries can be caused by:
- Defective products with faulty wiring
- Business owners who left unsafe wiring exposed or failed to get their property in line with fire codes
- Serious auto accidents where the fuel tank was ignited
- Careless people who mishandle flammable materials
Whatever the cause, our burn injury team will aggressively attempt to prove that the accident was caused by the negligent party so that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Damages in a Burn Injury Case
The catastrophic nature of burn injuries often result in the need for substantial damage awards to cover:
- Medical expenses
- Emotional distress and disfigurement
- Lost wages
