Woodland Burn Injury Lawyer
Suffering severe burns in any type of accident could entitle you to substantial financial compensation. To get the full value of your claim, consult with a Woodland burn injury lawyer.
Burns are some of the most painful injuries to suffer in an accident. These wounds can be so severe that long-term medical treatment may be required in order to heal. Along with skyrocketing medical bills, your financial wellbeing can be threatened if you can no longer work, putting you into a great deal of debt.
In most cases, accidents occur because of negligence. If your burn injuries were the result of someone else’s careless act, you can file a personal injury claim against the liable person or party to recover compensation to alleviate the financial stress the accident has caused you. A Woodland burn injury lawyer from Crowell Law Offices can help you obtain a positive outcome for you and your family.
Dealing with Insurance Companies After a Severe Burn
Following your accident, you may be overwhelmed with trying to determine what your next step is. It is critical that you avoid accepting a settlement offer from an insurer and don’t sign any documents with the liable party’s insurance company until after you consult with a Woodland burn injury lawyer first. Insurers want to protect their profits and are often quick to offer a low payout hoping that you will take it and move on.
We are here to protect your rights to ensure that you will receive a fair and full settlement. We will handle negotiations with the insurance companies and provide sound counsel so that you can recover all the losses attributed to your accident.
Burn Compensation Will Protect Your Financial Wellbeing
Whether your burn injuries were caused by a car accident, electrical malfunction, or a defective product, our goal is to help you get the money you deserve for all of your losses. Many believe compensation for medical costs and lost wages are enough to cover the damages. However, this is not the case in most burn injury claims.
Many other factors need to be considered when calculating losses relating to your severe burns:
Medical Costs, Current and Future – Your burns may require future surgeries for skin grafting, as well as physical and rehabilitation services.
Lost Income and Future Earning Potential – You can recover future income that you will lose through being unable to work.
Pain and Suffering and Emotional Distress – This is the physical pain and mental anguish that was caused by the accident. If you were disfigured as a result of the burn, you may also receive financial compensation for it.
Loss of Enjoyment of Life – When your life has been altered or you can no longer participate in activities or pleasures that you once enjoyed, you may recover compensation.
Punitive Damages – Punitive damages may be awarded in cases involving reckless conduct or malice. This is designed to punish the person liable for the accident and to prevent others from engaging in similar behavior.
Wrongful Death – If your loved one passed away due to burn injuries, you can file a wrongful death claim.
