Cameron Park Burn Injury Attorney
Burn Injuries are Both Extremely Painful and Slow Healing
Many doctors consider serious burns the most painful category of injury. In addition to the severe pain of the initial injury, burn victims must also often suffer through numerous surgeries and skin grafts. Because skin grafts do not expand, young burn victims are often forced to undergo additional surgeries as the years pass to replace the original graft.
Burn injuries, in addition to physical scarring, can also cause severe emotional scarring. Fear and anger are typical. The stares, questions, and well-intended over protection and sympathy can seem overwhelming to a burn survivor. Questions of self-doubt, self-worth, and identity arise. Relationships can suffer, physical skills become physical challenges, and long periods of hospitalization and recuperation can affect the victim’s social orientation and upset progress in education and career.
It is the attorney’s task to lessen the economic and practical burden borne by the victim of severe burns. Burns can arise from many different sources which may require various legal approaches. Several different legal specialties may need to be associated in order to address issues which may commonly arise in burn cases. For instance, a burn case can also involve worker’s compensation, defective products, auto accidents, aircraft cases, motorcycle accidents, and many other kinds of accidents. Burn cases can arise from almost any kind of accident.
