Burn injuries are devastating, one of the most painful personal injuries anyone can suffer – resulting in intense physical pain and severe emotional toll with treatment and recovery lasting for years. The damage to a victim’s self-image can be devastating; the collateral impact on family, friends, careers and other aspects of their lives, overwhelming.
An estimated 450,000 people are treated for burn injuries every year in the U.S., according to the American Burn Association (www.ameriburn.org). Burn injuries account for an estimated 4,000 fatalities annually and that about 3,500 of those deaths are due to residential fires while 500 are caused by motor vehicle and aircraft crashes, contact with electricity, chemicals or hot liquids and other sources of burn injury.
Burn victims often undergo multiple surgeries involving skin grafts, the constant threat of deadly infections, and a lifetime of serious healthcare concerns. Similar to other types of serious injury cases, burn injury cases are complex and involve extensive resources in order to build and present a compelling story of how a burn has affected a client’s life. People who have suffered severe burns may require treatment at a specialized burn center, and multiple surgeries, including plastic surgery. Even with the best of medical care, physical and emotional scars can last a lifetime.
At Coker Law, our attorneys understand the life-changing nature of burn injuries. If negligence was involved, we may be able to help you recover financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, disfigurement and disability, lost wages and loss of future earning capacity, property damage and more.
