Burn injuries require immediate medical care, and even with appropriate treatment, severe burns can have lifelong effects such as scarring and disfigurement.

If you or a loved one has suffered burn injuries as a result of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income and other costs resulting from the accident.

However, the insurance company for the person who caused your injury will almost certainly try to minimize the compensation you receive. That is why you need aggressive representation from an experienced personal injury lawyer. At The Levine Law Firm in Austin, we will work quickly and efficiently on your legal issues while you focus on getting better.

Assessing The Full Cost Of Burn Injuries

According to the American Burn Association, fire and flame burns lead to nearly 45 percent of admissions to burn trauma centers, while scalding from wet or moist heat results in more than 30 percent of admissions. A smaller number of admissions to burn centers are caused by electrical and chemical burns, which can be just as life-threatening as other types of burn injuries.

Regardless of the cause of the accident, a burn injury can affect every aspect of a person's life, and survivors of extremely serious burns may be left with permanent disability.

Accounting for the full cost of a burn injury requires careful consideration of not only medical records, but also the effects on family and income, as well as the physical and emotional pain of the injury itself. In other words, these injuries are extremely costly for victims, who deserve full and fair compensation.

At The Levine Law Firm, we work diligently to keep track of our clients' medical costs, as well as the short- and long-term physical effects of the injury. As part of our personal injury claims process, we thoroughly investigate the accident to prove the other party's liability. You can rely on our more than 20 years of experience to help maximize the compensation you receive.
