A burn is one of the most catastrophic injuries you can suffer. If you’ve been harmed due to someone else’s carelessness, a Tacoma burn injury lawyer could help ensure your rights are protected.
On this page, we’ll cover a few key topics:
Many times, burns are preventable accidents. And sometimes, burns are the cause of someone else’s careless behavior. When this happens, a victim may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim.
Let’s look at some examples of when a burn may be the result of negligence:
Ask yourself: was my burn injury the direct result of someone’s misbehavior or failure to act? If the answer is “yes,” we urge you to call us. There’s no charge to speak with one of our attorneys and we can investigate further.
Due to their seriousness, burns often require extensive medical care. Unfortunately, this care comes with a price. It’s not uncommon for victims to rack up extraordinary medical debt. Besides the medical costs, there are other financial impacts.
In addition, the emotional toll of burn injuries cannot be underestimated. Many victims suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD, and insomnia. Physical scars can also be a source of embarrassment or a painful reminder of traumatic memories.
Let’s state the obvious fact. No amount of money can fix what’s happened. Even so, we believe there are very good reasons to pursue a burn injury claim if you’ve been wrongfully injured.
A settlement could…
It’s important that your settlement adequately cover these wrongs. Once you’ve accepted a settlement, you cannot go back and request more money later. When you’re dealing with a very serious injury, such as a burn, it’s essential to work with a personal injury lawyer to make sure that final amount is fair.
On that note, let’s talk about personal injury attorneys. Could you just handle this on your own? Yes, you could. But we really encourage you to call us first.
