Severe burn injuries – those resulting in disfigurement, requiring multiple surgeries to repair, or extending over a substantial portion of the body – can be some of the most devastating injuries we handle. They often result in patients being placed into a chemically induced coma while they recuperate and require multiple surgeries and skin grafts.
During this physically and emotionally difficult time, you shouldn’t have to worry if you’ll be able to receive the compensation you’re owed. Our team of lawyers at Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez, and Leonard has extensive experience handling all types of burn injury cases including house fires caused by faulty wiring or appliances, explosions, chemical burns, and electrocution.
As you focus on healing, we’ll work with your doctors and insurance agency behind-the-scenes to make sure your damages are established and that all liable parties are held responsible for their wrongdoings.
How can a burn injury lawyer assist me?
Our lawyers can assist with the full range of legal, medical, rehabilitative and counseling needs that can arise after extensive injuries by fire, electrocution or explosion. Perhaps most of all, we can protect you from the urge to accept the first settlement offer you receive following the accident or fire.
For some burn injury cases, the amount you will need to support your recovery cannot be known until the victim is released from intensive care and completes recovery from the first round of skin grafts and reconstructive surgery. We can consult you to make sure you make the best long-term decision as you recover from your injuries.
We’ll make sure that your damages demand will be sufficient to cover the full extent of your present and future needs.
