Burns cause skin and tissue damage as well as dangerous secondary conditions such as infection, nerve damage, inhalation injuries, cardiac arrest, internal bleeding and organ failure. In the worst cases, burn victims die from their injuries.

If you or a family member has suffered burn injuries, you will need compensation to cover extensive medical treatment, lost wages and perhaps long-term care. Burn victims must endure a long recovery that can include skin grafts, cosmetic procedures and pain management. Psychotherapy may be necessary to address post-traumatic stress disorder and help people adjust to life with scarring, disfigurement and disabilities such as blindness.
