Burns are some of the worst injuries because they are usually disfiguring as well as injurious. Especially in children, whose skin is more vulnerable, burns have a long-lasting psychological effect aside from the physical injury.
Burns most often occur in the workplace, due to explosion, fire, or exposure to high voltage or chemicals. Great care should be taken to prevent injury, but safety is sometimes secondary to increasing production and speed, by negligent or simply careless parties. Car accidents are another frequent cause of burns.
Not one but multiple surgeries are often necessary. The pain does not go away quickly, and victims’ ability to work and earn an income may be compromised. At Whiteaker & Wilson, we are highly motivated to assist burn injury victims and their families. Whether through negotiation or trial, we work hard to achieve the best possible financial compensation for your medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
