A burn injury is one of the most painful and debilitating injuries a person can endure and also one of the most expensive. If you have suffered a burn injury due to negligence, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Burn injuries may occur because of a landlord’s failure to properly inspect a smoke and fire alarm for effectiveness; failure to provide a fire extinguisher; improper maintenance that affects the electrical and furnace system; fires involving defective vehicle parts, pumps, and tanks; and many more scenarios.

Our Attorneys Help Burn Injury Victims Seek Justice
Burn injuries can result from house fires, industrial fires, chemical spills, defective products, and other accidents. Burn injuries force victims to contend with a number of hardships, often including:
- Intense pain and suffering
- Permanent scarring and disfigurement
- Skin grafts
- Multiple surgeries
- Smoke inhalation injuries
- Nerve damage
Treating a burn injury can take many years and cost an enormous sum of money. You will have short-term and long-term medical needs and these can be costly. Additionally, there may be other damages available to you, which can help with these costs.
