Burn Injury Lawyer in Chicago

Is there a Burn Injury in Your Family?

Burn injuries are the third highest cause of death in the United States.  Worldwide burn injuries cause 300,000 deaths annually.  For those who survive, they are debilitating emotionally and physically and are among the most expensive to treat.  Nearly half of burn injuries are suffered in child injury cases to innocent victims under age 18.  The second largest affected group is the elderly.  Where you or a family member has been burned due to the negligence of another, you are urged to seek compensation.  You may contact a personal injury lawyer in Chicago.

Compensation for Burn Injuries

Where a person is injured due to another's wrongdoing, it is possible to recover the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Ambulance bills
  • Hospital bills
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Retraining
  • Loss of income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

Included in these damages are surgery for needed skin grafts and compensation for disfigurement.  If death results, the family may sue for wrongful death.
