Working with a Lawyer to Win a Settlement

The first step in seeking compensation for your burn injury is proving that someone else’s reckless behavior was responsible for what happened. Some examples of negligence that could cause serious burns include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents. If the other driver ran a red light or had another traffic violation and struck you, they could be held liable.
  • Motorcycle crashesVictims thrown from their bikes can suffer road rashes and burns when coming into contact with the engine or exhaust pipes.
  • Medical malpractice. Surgeons and doctors sometimes fail to provide proper levels of care and patients can become injured.
  • Unsafe work conditions. Employers owe it to staff to keep their premises and procedures safe.
  • Hazardous propertiesSometimes, a burn injury can arise when a property owner fails to fix known hazards or warn guests about them.

Damages in a Burn Injury Case are Often High

Many victims want to know: how much of a settlement am I likely to receive? One of the ways we can help determine a potential value range is by looking at your damages. Think of damages as all the ways you were harmed because of your injury, financial and otherwise.

Not surprisingly, the damages in a burn injury case are often high. Have you faced any of the following?

  • Emergency room care
  • Hospital or burn center stay
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Medication costs
  • Missed time from work
  • Reduced ability to work in the future
  • Pain and suffering

A word on that last bullet point item. Given the extreme pain and suffering associated with burn injuries, your lawyer may push to seek higher damages than other injury cases.
