The Dunnion Law Firm: Experience You Can Trust
Two decades ago, an individual with a burn injury over 50% of the body's
surface was not expected to survive. Today, burn victims with far more

In some cases, medical treatment and rehabilitative therapy can go on
for years. The financial burden of the medical care alone can be immense.
We consult with medical specialists to gain realistic projections of the
medical care which may be needed in the future. This information is then
used in order to prepare a comprehensive claim for damages to help reach
an improved quality of life for an injured client.
In representing a client who is recovering from burn injuries, we focus
on how best to provide for the client's future well-being. In some
cases, a burn survivor may be impaired and not able to return to his or
her prior profession. The emotional impact of not only the initial injury,
but also the subsequent treatment and rehabilitation, can be significant
and may curtail a person's ability to return to a normal life. Our
personal injury lawyers consider these factors and many more when representing a burn injury survivor,
and we aggressively seek compensation which is commensurate to the damage done.
