Help for North Texas Burn Victims

Thousands of burn injury victims in Denton Texas have suffered extreme losses as a result of their injuries. The American Burn Association estimates that severe burn injuries (defined as burns covering 40 to 60 percent of the body) cost an average of $780,000. Victims may be unable to return to work, forfeiting future wages. In addition, severe burns can cause long-term disability and chronic pain. How can these victims receive the help they need?

After receiving immediate medical attention for their injuries, hiring a qualified Denton personal injury attorney is the first step for burn victims seeking assistance. If you or a loved one have suffered a severe burn injury, the experienced Texas accident lawyers at Carabin Shaw are ready to offer help for North Texas burn victims like you.

Seeking Compensation for Severe Burn Injuries

Aside from life-saving medical attention, what burn victims need most in the aftermath of their injuries is a fair financial settlement. Though no amount of money will erase their pain and suffering, victims often require compensation to afford the necessary treatment for their injuries.

Luckily, state law allows North Texas burn victims to reclaim the following damages with the help of a qualified burn injury lawyer serving Denton:

Physical injuries

Severe burn injuries may cause nerve and muscle damage that limits or permanently impairs movement. Additionally, victims may develop keloid formations (severe scarring) over their burns that require extensive surgeries. Other potential injuries include loss of limb, severe infection, paralysis, cardiac arrest, or lung damage.

Economic losses

All of the above injuries often accumulate major costs associated with medical treatment. Some severe burn injuries require weeks or even months in a specialized hospital burn unit. Additionally, the physical impact of a burn injury can result in a loss of wage earning ability and job benefits. When burn victims are the primary earners in their family, this loss of wages can be detrimental to their family’s security.

Pain and suffering

Burn victims may experience immense physical and emotional pain as a direct result of their injuries. Nerve damage caused by burns can result in permanent pain or numbness. The necessary treatments for burn injuries can require multiple painful surgeries and years of physical therapy. All this may be in addition to the emotional trauma of suffering severe disfigurement, scarring, and loss of movement.

While it may be impossible to truly put a dollar amount on the immense suffering of burn victims, it is important to claim these damages in order for burn victims to see justice.

Whatever losses you have suffered after a burn accident, you deserve fair compensation. Make sure to keep careful records of your losses to present to your burn injury attorney during your consultation.
