Electrical/Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are one of the most painful and devastating injuries a person can suffer. Over 700,000 people go to the emergency room each year for burns, and nearly 45,000 of them are hospitalized for longer-term care. Burns can range from first-degree (top layer) to third-degree burns (tissue damage), and they result in over 4,500 deaths per year due to cell death, infection or smoke inhalation.

There are many ways a person can suffer injuries from burns, including scalding from hot or boiling liquids, chemical burns, electrical burns, fires and car crashes. These types of injuries are often the result of some form of negligence.

Severe burn injuries almost always require extensive care. These injuries can do extraordinary damage to the body, requiring careful, attentive treatment. Furthermore, these treatments are often expensive and can leave you unable to work. Fortunately, our highly experienced lawyers can step in and pursue money damages on your behalf so you can focus on healing.


If you or a family member has suffered a burn injury, you may be entitled to recover money damages that will cover medical bills, loss of normal life, lost wages, disfigurement and scarring and long-term pain and suffering. If you are the spouse of a seriously injured person, you may also be entitled to compensation for your “loss of consortium,” which is the loss that occurs when you lose your spouse’s companionship and marital relations.
