Knowledgeable Sarasota Burn Accident Attorneys

About burn accidents

Dealing with a serious burn is a painful and often continuous ordeal. The American Burn Association reports that 1.1 million people seek treatment for burns every year, with more than 40 percent (45,000) requiring hospitalization. Burn injuries also lead to about 4,500 fatalities annually. Those who suffer severe burn injuries often face long-term, if not lifelong, effects. Victims are susceptible to serious infections and typically require numerous surgeries, ongoing physical therapy and other treatments that can accrue astronomical costs.

When burn accidents result from negligence, recklessness or intentional conduct, the person or party at fault should be held responsible for the damage he or she has caused. At the injury law firm of Morris & Widman, P.A., our Sarasota accident lawyers work with clients to recover the maximum compensation for their burns. In addition to full coverage of past and future medical costs, burn injury victims can also gain payment for the property damage, lost wages due to missed work and emotional pain they endure. Even when cases reach trial, our aggressive attorneys ??? both of whom are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Florida Bar Association ??? are qualified to provide top-notch representation.

Effects of serious burn injuries

Dealing with the physical and emotional trauma of a serious burn injury is overwhelming. Victims require careful monitoring by doctors and specialists who can manage the effects of their burns, including:

  • Nerve damage
  • Scarring
  • Blistering
  • Muscle tissue damage
  • Loss of mobility
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch and light
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Lung damage from smoke inhalation
  • Loss of sweat glands
  • Loss of hair follicles
  • Permanent disability
  • Life-threatening infections

 

The emotional toll can be equally devastating. Those who suffer scarring and noticeable disfigurement may feel discomfort or anxiety in public settings, and the way they look may even affect their self-esteem. Counseling, which can help resolve these issues, is costly. Skillful burn injury attorneys make sure that all current and future therapies, treatments and other necessities are covered so victims never have to bear the undue costs of their injuries.
