Winder Burn Injury Attorney
Burns happen for many reasons, including fires, electrical accidents, contact with hot surfaces or steam, exposure to toxic chemicals, and more. One thing that all burns have in common is that they have the potential to cause serious and lasting effects, and they often require extensive medical attention and treatment.
If you suffered burns in an accident caused by someone else, you likely have a long road to recovery, and you should have the help of a burn injury lawyer in Winder with your legal case and financial recovery. Contact the law firm of Ben F. Windham, PC, to discuss your rights and the best next steps.
Losses from Burn Injuries
All medical treatment can be costly, and serious burns often require extensive medical care. Third-degree burns are particularly severe, as they often require weeks or even months in a burn unit or burn center. This is because patients need intensive infection prevention measures, as well as often requiring multiple surgical operations. Needless to say, the costs of this care can add up quickly.
In addition to medical bills, the following losses can result from burns:
- Lost earnings from missed work or if you are unable to return to work after your injury
- Physical pain and suffering, which can be substantial with burn injuries
- Mental trauma
- Permanent disfigurement or disability, as burns often result in scarring or even amputation
If another person or company was responsible for causing your burn injuries, they (or their insurance companies) should compensate you for all of your losses.
