Burn Injuries

Legal Remedies for Burn Injury Victims

Burn injuries are surprisingly common and can be caused by chemicals, water, fire, electricity, steam, explosions or molten materials. In our experience, burn injuries are often referred to as the most painful of all injuries. A burn injury can also be difficult to treat and can result in a wrongful death suit. Burn injuries can result in disfiguring scarring which can, in the case of keloidal scarring, actually grow worse over time.
