Burn injuries—whether they are from an accidental electrocution or a fire—are arguably the most devastating type of injury, both physically and emotionally. Burn victims typically experience excruciating pain, coupled with a prolonged recovery and a life that is often changed forever. In the most serious of cases, burn injuries and electrocutions can lead to the wrongful death of innocent victims.
Recovering from Burn Injuries is a Long, Painful, and Expensive Process
Many burn injury victims require skin grafts and/or reconstructive surgery; these procedures are often extremely painful and must be performed by the trained staff at hospitals with specialized units. The financial burden of the medical bills can quickly become overwhelming for both the victim and his or her family.
Following a burn injury, your life may be turned upside down. The physical and psychological trauma for both the burn victim and their family can be enormous. On top of that, you probably have many questions that need immediate answers.
Talk to Our Burn Injury Attorneys For Help
Our lawyers are experienced handling burn injury cases throughout Kansas and Missouri, and can answer your questions, provide you with guidance, and help your family recover the compensation that you need to cover medical expenses and other costs.
If your burn injury was caused by the negligence of another, you may have a personal injury claim. A negligent or reckless driver of a car that hit you, causing your car to catch on fire, can be held liable for your burn injuries. Similarly, the manufacturers and/or distributors of faulty or defective products can be held liable for the injuries they cause. If your electrician improperly installs the smoke detectors in your house and then your house later catches on fire, causing injury to one of its occupants, he or she can be held liable as well.
