Filing a Claim for Burn Injuries

Just as with any other type of injury you may suffer due to someone else’s negligent actions, you may be able to file a claim for financial compensation after a burn injury. To be successful with your claim, you must prove another party was to blame for your accident. You must also prove the act of negligence was the cause of the burn and that you sustained damages, or losses, as a result.

Proving these elements of any personal injury case is never easy, particularly after you have suffered an injury as serious as a second-degree or third-degree burn. The other side may argue that you caused your burn, so you cannot claim the damages you deserve. Collecting evidence to prove your case is also extremely difficult when you are trying to recover from such serious injuries.

If you need to file a claim to pursue financial compensation, it is always recommended that you work with a Lake City burn injuries lawyer who can help ensure a positive outcome with your claim.

Can I Recover Compensation if I Contributed to the Accident?

You can recover compensation if you contributed to the accident or your injuries, but you must share no more than 50% of the responsibility.

It’s also important to note that your percentage of fault will decrease your available compensation. For example, if you share 30% of the fault for the accident, you can recover 70% of the final award. If your final award was $200,000, you would be able to recover $140,000.

Can I Afford Legal Help in Lake City?

Yes. Our team knows how expensive it can seem to get legal help. That’s why we handle cases on a contingency-fee basis. You pay no upfront fees and only pay for our help if we win. We will discuss our fees before you sign a contract so there’s never any unpleasant surprises.

There is no risk when you enlist our help.

Understanding the Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are often the result of serious accidents.

  • During a crash involving two or more motor vehicles, gas tanks may explode, resulting in a fire that causes an accident victim to sustain a very serious burn injury.
  • Dangerous conditions on a premises, such as faulty wiring, can also cause a fire that results in serious burn injuries. If the staff members at a childcare or daycare center do not properly supervise the children in their care, they may touch a hot stove or otherwise burn themselves.

Severe burn injuries are not only very costly to treat, but the necessary medical procedures are extremely expensive and can take years to complete. Skin grafts, surgeries, and rehabilitation, such as physical therapy, can result in months, or even years, of medical treatment.

Permanent scarring, amputation, disfigurement, and permanent damage to the nerves are just some of the ramifications you may face after a burn injury. Sometimes, accident victims never make a full recovery.
