Connecticut Burn Injury Lawyer
Have You Suffered a Burn Injury? We can Help!
A startling 50% of burn injuries are caused by negligence. Burns are excruciatingly painful, have long lasting effects and often result in disfiguring scars. Depending on the severity of the burns, future surgeries after the initial recovery may be expected, as well as the possibility of physiotherapy. All of these treatments result in mounting costs for the victim.
It is obvious that fire causes burns, but permanent damage can be caused by many sources. These include:
- Scalding water
- Malfunction of products, such as smoke detectors and water heaters.
The causes and substances involved result in extreme pain and blindness itself. The resulting trauma can be devastating to both a human life and family members in terms of suffering and expense.
As in all negligence cases, what another person has done carelessly, or someone who has not done something a reasonable person would do, gives rise to a claim for monetary damages.
Under some circumstances, an action can include a claim for a defective product, generally described as product liability. If the injury occurs at work, a claim can be filed under the applicable Workers Compensation laws.
The damages to be requested and obtained are called Compensatory and you may be entitled to some or all of the following categories:
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Earning Capacity
- Present and Future Medical bills
- Loss of Life’s enjoyment
- Loss of Consortium
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional pain and suffering
- Permanent injury and percentage thereof.
The immediate/quick retention of a lawyer to investigate all responsible parties, every cause, and to preserve evidence is important, even essential, to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome.
