Why Hire a Lawyer for a Burn Injury?
If you have been the victim of a burn accident, you may wonder why you need the help of an attorney. You might not think you have a case to pursue. Alternatively, you may believe that the insurance company will voluntarily step forward and provide you with adequate compensation.
The fact is that insurance companies have only one goal, and that is to make sure they pay you nothing, or, at best, as little as possible. Their willingness to offer a fair settlement usually depends upon whether you are represented by a law firm with a reputation of fighting hard for the rights of its clients. And for those who think they have no case, and that a potential recovery is not worth pursuing, think again. Most people are unaware of their legal rights as accident victims. The attorneys at Black Wynn will explain how we intend to establish liability, and how much your case is worth.

What are Your Rights as a Burn Victim?
The first issue in determining what your rights are as a burn victim is to establish who was responsible for the accident that caused your injury. They can be held accountable and can be required to compensate you for the damages you have suffered. The issue of fault will depend upon the circumstances surrounding the accident, which may have occurred in one of many different situations. Those situations include, but are not limited to:
Industrial accidents at the workplace occur on a regular basis. Some of those accidents result in burn injuries. They can be caused by chemical leaks, steam, scalding water, and fires, among other causes. And they can happen in a factory, at a construction site, in a restaurant, warehouse or at any other workplace. Any number of people or companies could be responsible for your injuries.
Burns can be the result of an electrical shock. They can occur anywhere, including at home or at work.
Some of the most common household accidents result in burn injuries. They include fires, which could be the fault of a landlord or property owner. The fault could also lie with a construction company, electrician or other worker.
Motor Vehicle Accidents.
Car, bus and truck accidents not only cause broken bones, bruises and related injuries, but can also result in fires fueled by gasoline.
Whatever situation led to the burn injury you received, an experienced Phoenix burn injury lawyer can examine the facts and determine whether the negligence or fault of another person or entity was legally responsible. When fault is established, you can recover compensation for your injuries, including past and future loss of earnings, past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering (including emotional distress), loss of enjoyment of life, as well as compensation for any scars and disfigurement resulting from the injuries.
Medical Complications from Burn Injuries
In addition to the significant pain of a burn injuries, burns often lead to other complications, including infections, chronic pain, lung damage, nerve damage, and other serious medical conditions. Those complications can increase the cost of future medical care. Because of these complications, your injuries could lead to the need for hospitalization, therapy, rehabilitation, plastic surgery, skin grafts, removal of dead skin, and in some cases, psychological counseling.
Due to these types of problems, what may appear to be a fixed and limited amount of doctor and hospital bills could in fact be just the tip of the iceberg. Bills totaling a few thousand dollars could mushroom into tens of thousands of dollars of ongoing medical expenses.
