Fighting For Fair Financial Compensation After Burn Injuries In Northbrook

If you were injured in a motor vehicle crash or a workplace accident, you may have been surprised when the doctors told you that you had a burn injury even though there was no fire. A burn is a skin injury that can come from a number of causes: electrical burns, chemical burns from car airbags and friction burns (called road rash) in motorcycle accidents. Even a seat belt can cause an abrasion “burn.”

The personal injury lawyers at the Orzoff Law Offices have helped many people who suffered burn injuries in car and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and workplace accidents. In one recent case, we represented a woman who suffered third-degree chemical burns to her chest from the deployment of an airbag. The chemicals went through her clothing to burn her skin and she required several plastic surgeries.

Burn injuries can be extremely painful. A person with serious burns is at greater risk for life-threatening infections. Skin grafts may be necessary and more than one round of plastic surgery is not uncommon. Even in the very best case, there is usually scarring. You deserve compensation for your financial and emotional damages.

Full And Fair Compensation For Burn Injuries

Treatment for burn injuries can take many months. Multiple surgeries may be required to replace skin and to improve the appearance of scars. In some cases, adhesions can form in scar tissue, causing loss of flexibility and movement. And in some cases, permanent cosmetic disfigurement can lead to emotional trauma and loss of self-esteem, requiring psychiatric and psychological treatment.

Whether you were hurt in a car crash or a workplace accident, you can receive compensation for your medical costs, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and emotional distress. Workers’ compensation provides a lump-sum payment for visible scars. As your personal injury attorney or workers’ compensation lawyer, our job is to ensure you receive full and fair compensation and all of the benefits available to you under the law.
