Electrical & Burn Injury Law


Burn injuries are among the most devastating and painful a person can suffer. They are also among the most expensive to treat.

Unfortunately, burns are extremely common. According to the Journal of Burn Care and Rehabilitation, approximately 2.4 million burn injuries are reported every year. Many more minor skin injury burns typically go unreported. Between 8,000 and 12,000 of the patients with burn injuries die each year. And approximately one million sustain substantial or permanent disabilities resulting from their burn injury.

We represent clients who suffer from all types of burn injuries, including electrical burns from contact with power lines or arc flash injuries, chemical burns, scalds from hot liquids or steam, and thermal burns from contact with a hot object or open flame.

Burn injuries are expensive to treat because patients may need multiple surgeries. These may include skin grafts and plastic surgery to reconstruct burned areas or to reduce scarring. Rehabilitation is often required after a serious burn injury.

The medical expenses for burn injury patients are tremendous, as is the pain and suffering associated with a burn injury. The financial compensation that may be received is necessary to cover past medical expenses and to continue proper medical care in the future.
