Why are burn injuries different from other kinds of personal injury?
Burn injury attorneys know that burns are the most painful kind of injury that a person could ever have. We are familiar with the nightmares and the PTSD that burn victims often have. We know our clients have needed painful special treatments to prevent infection after they were burned. We have seen first-hand the strain that a burn injury puts on an entire family. Burn injury lawyers know that after the skin is healed, there is often a lifetime of skin care required to treat the scarring from a burn.
Our burn attorneys know that burns come not just from fires, but from many other hazards, like laser hair removal treatments, hot water, caustic chemicals and smoke inhalation. Burn injuries are very common, and unfortunately, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), burn injuries are one of the leading causes of death among our country’s children.
