Severe Pain, Permanent Disfigurement, and the Need for Multiple Surgeries

What is fair compensation for pain from burns? No amount of money can make the pain recede completely, but Patrick and support staff are extremely skilled at evaluating the costs of the treatment for burns. If you become our client, we will dedicate all of our efforts to help you get the compensation necessary to cover your medical bills, lost wages and obtain punitive damages against those who may have caused your suffering. Your medical costs and your need for economic support may be substantial. While erasing the catastrophe that lead to the burns cannot be done, we may be able to help you get the best treatment available and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your difficulties.

In addition to the physical injuries that burns may cause, the psychological damage can last a lifetime. There is no need to bear the burdens alone. We can help you identify the best reconstructive surgeons, pain management specialists, therapists and support groups as we seek justice from those responsible for your burn injuries.

All burn injuries are painful and we are prepared to help you no matter the severity of your injuries. We are also here to help you no matter what caused your injury. Some types of incidents that lead to burn injuries include:

  • Car accidents in which hot metal presses against the skin or flames cause extensive damage
  • Direct contact with fire that leads to third degree burns and permanent scarring
  • Exposure to steam or toxic chemicals in your workplace
  • Hot liquids or food not safely handled at a restaurant
  • Inhalation of hot smoke, steam or vapors that leads to internal damage
  • Severe sunburn at a daycare or school where children are not adequately protected

The above represent only a small sample of the many ways that burn injuries can occur. The age of the victim, their health, and the area of the body in which the burn occurred will significantly influence the type of medical treatment and other support necessary. Often, the amount of compensation you need is not found using a simple formula. Patrick Shea and his highly specialized staff will help determine how justice should be defined with your specific case.
