Many clients want to know whether they can receive compensation due to a burn injury. As Personal Injury Attorneys, we want you to know when you deserve compensation.
Medical information about burns
According to the US National Library of Health, there are three types of burns:
First degree burns: Affecting the outer layer of skin.
Second-degree burns: Burns, which affect the outer layer of skin and underneath.
Third-degree burns: Burns, which affect all layers of skin and the tissue underneath.
Burns can result in severe injury, massive medical bills, days of sick leave, and permanent physical and emotional damage.
Burns occur in several different ways and circumstances. Healthline.com claims that these include scalding, chemical burns, electric burns, fires, and “excessive sun exposure.”
Receive compensation for your burn injury
You do not need to suffer the trauma and pain of burn injury alone. Personal injury attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and proper compensation.
If you receive a burn on the job, know your rights. You received a personal injury at the site of an employer and are entitled to workman’s compensation.
Many people receive burns from auto accidents. If this applies to you, you may be eligible for auto accident compensation. A personal injury lawyer can help you get the proper balance that insurance companies cannot.
And unfortunately, burn injuries can result from healthcare professionals. This is medical malpractice.
Know your rights
If any of these apply to you, you are entitled to receive proper compensation. Many times, insurance companies do not provide the necessary payment and are full of red tape and extra stress.
