Burns and Electrocutions Are Some of the Most Serious Injuries


Burns are not only some of the most painful injuries, they are also extremely medically serious. They typically require extensive emergency treatment and are prone to medical complications such as infections. Skin grafts are often necessary in order to for the burn victim to survive. Particularly in the case of electrocution, muscles, connective tissue, ligaments, bones and even internal organs may also be seriously damaged.

Burns and electrocutions are also profoundly psychologically affecting. Most survivors require psychological treatment, and many suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. The injured person may suffer from scarring and disfigurement.

An electric shock can cause non-burn injuries because of the involuntary muscle reaction to the shock. Fractures, bruises, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and death can occur.

In all of these situations, a burn injury can cause immense, long-term and even life-changing harm. Survivors may lose some mobility or use of their limbs, or may suffer amputation. All of this can create substantial financial obligations while limiting or even eliminating your ability to work.

Our firm focuses on obtaining maximum compensation for our clients' injuries, pain and suffering, medical treatment, lost wages and other losses. Whether you were burned in a construction accident in a car accident, or in another situation involving negligence, we will carefully evaluate your immediate and long-term needs and insist upon full compensation for everything the injury has cost you.
