Burn Injuries can be severe and life altering. There are many issues that must be addressed when dealing with a burn injury. First and foremost, immediate medical attention is a necessity. Medical issues ranging from scarring, infection, debridement, grafting, restrictions in range of motion, pain management, dressing changes, as well as psychological trauma are just some of the considerations involved in treatment and recovery from a burn. Timely investigation regarding the cause of the burns is also critical to the outcome of any litigation. Questions need to be addressed concerning how the burn injury occurred, why it happened, where it happened, when it happened and who is responsible. Photographs and videotapes taken as soon as possible may prove to be invaluable to the case. On the other hand, insurance companies, who cover the parties responsible for the burns, are in business to make money. The way that they make money is by limiting the amount of money that they pay out on claims. Insurance adjusters will attempt to take recorded statements, secure written statements, send out investigators and/or experts. It is also important to contact us right away because there may be documents that need to be submitted, we may need to retain the services of an expert, and we may need to speak with witnesses while the incident is still fresh in their minds.
