SORRENTINO LEGAL | CONNECTICUT CT BURN INJURY ATTORNEYS
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AFTER A BURN INJURY
Burn injuries can be devastating and have longstanding consequences for a victim of a burn injury. Even minor burns can be extremely painful, usually have a lengthy recovery process, and even worse, can scar you for life. Tragically, burn injuries can be so severe, it can cause permanent disfigurement or even death. Severe burn injuries may require long term care, and even after hospitalization, burn injury victims may need several surgeries, skin grafts, and the expertise of a plastic surgeon. Damage can be done to the epidermal skin, but also tissue, muscles, and even tendons.
Someone suffering from a serious burn can often experience psychological difficulties, lose their confidence or struggle with self worth, or even fall into a major depression. Aside from the physical and psychological hardships, a serious burn can prevent one from gainful employment, and the financial woes only add to the debilitating effects of a burn injury.
No one should have to face these troubles alone. If you were burned because another person acted carelessly or happened to use a defective product that caused a burn, you may have legal recourse and be eligible to receive compensation. A skilled Connecticut burn injury lawyer can help you to recover expenses for your past and future medication, rehabilitation, repair surgery, lost wages, physical and psychological pain and suffering, and much more. Your recovery of course will depend on the nature of your burn injury and the facts and circumstances of your case.
FATAL ACCIDENT OR WRONGFUL DEATH FROM BURN ACCIDENT
Burns remain a serious foe to public health on a global scale. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are over 300,000 deaths every year from fires alone not to mention injuries following a burn from scalding water, electrical burn, or any other number of tragic scenarios. Fire-related deaths are mostly likely to occur in poorer communities, as preventive measures can be costly or fire hazards are more likely to be ignored. Children and the elderly are the most vulnerable individuals likely to become burn victims and burn fatalities.
