Burn Injury Attorneys
Burn injuries are among the most painful and devastating injuries anyone can experience. They are also, unfortunately, all too common. Due to the severe nature of burn injuries, medical treatment will often require extensive treatment and costly plastic surgery. Many burn injury victims also suffer from excruciating pain and psychological scars that make it nearly impossible to resume a normal life.

Types & Degrees of Burns
- Thermal Burns – Thermal burns are very common. This type of burn is associated with contact with heated items like metals, scalding liquids, steam, or flames.
- Chemical Burns – Chemical burns are sustained when the skin comes in contact with toxic substances like harsh cleaning products.
- Flash Burns – Flash burns typically occur when people are exposed to an explosion.
- Inhalation Injuries – Inhalation injuries occur through inhalation of smoke or chemical fumes. Inhalation injuries are particularly likely when someone is enclosed in a tight area
Burn injury medical treatment
Burn injuries frequently require long term, specialized medical treatment such as spending time in a burn unit. Given the severity of burn injuries, medical bills tend to be extremely high.
Even with the best medical insurance coverage, most severe burn injury victims will have a hard time paying for necessary medical care.
It has been estimated that even a moderate burn injury will cost a victim over $200,000. More serious injuries typically cost over $1.5 million, and that’s if everything goes relatively well. The most severe burn injuries with serious complications can cost an individual over $10 million.
