Experienced Burn Injury Attorneys In Ann Arbor
We have handled many burn injury scenarios over three decades, including victims of residential fires and workplace chemical burns. However, most of our cases fall into two categories:
Vehicle accidents — Flames and smoke inhalation from car fires, contact burns from heated wreckage, friction burns and road rash in motorcycle spills, or electrical burns from contact with power lines
Medical negligence — Burns, fires or explosions from mishandling of flammable oxygen, surgical cauterizing instruments, medical lasers, scalding fluids, or chemo or radiation therapy
With the help of accident reconstructionists and medical experts, our team is adept at identifying the liable parties and establishing the causation between the event and the burns. We are always prepared to take cases to a jury when defendants and their insurers refuse a reasonable settlement.
Covering The Care Needs And Hardships
We work diligently to make sure that clients who were injured in a fire or otherwise severely burned are compensated for all aspects of medical care and recovery, and their personal and financial losses. Damages in burn injury lawsuits may reflect:
- Pain and suffering from third-degree and second-degree burns
- Medications and pain management
- Skin graft surgeries and rehab
- Physical therapy
- Burn ward or nursing home care
- Scarring, hair loss and disfigurement
- Nerve damage and loss of use
- Psychological counseling (depression, post-traumatic stress, etc.)
- Lost wages and projected earnings
- Loss of consortium and enjoyment of life
