Information on Burn Injuries

Each year approximately 75 thousand people are hospitalized for burn injuries. This can be one of the most terrifying injuries, as well as the most painful and disfiguring. Severe burns are life-changing in cases where the individual survives. When this injury is caused by reckless disregard for the safety of others, it is even more traumatic as the accident could so easily have been avoided.

At The Dunnion Law Firm, our California personal injury attorneys assist individuals harmed through the misconduct of others gain compensation for damages. The ability of a burn injury victim to have the best possible medical care and a more complete recovery can be made possible by the efforts of our firm.

Burn injuries can be caused by:

  • Heat
  • Electrical
  • Chemicals
  • Radiation
  • Friction

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 extensive damage routinely recover through the specialized treatment available in burn centers. Depending on the depth of the burn, deep tissues and muscles may be affected. The first priority is to treat the burn and fight for the continued life of the victim. When the patient has stabilized, reconstructive surgeries or a course of skin grafts which may be necessary can begin.

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 experienced 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.
