Ohio Fire Accident Lawyers
A severe burn is the most agonizing injury anyone can suffer. For the victim, recovery is usually a nightmarish existence of skin scraping and skin grafts that can last for months or years. Even with plastic surgery, burns leave permanent physical and psychological scars.
At the law firm of Seaman & Associates, we know what burn injury victims must go through. While no financial settlement can make up for what a burn injury victim has lost, our lawyers work hard to ensure that our clients receive the best possible medical care and as much financial security as possible. We offer a free consultation for burn victims and their family members.
Types of Burn Injuries
Burn injury can result from fires, chemical exposure, propane and natural gas explosions, and from electrical shock. Your financial recovery will depend on a thorough investigation of who was responsible for your injury. In many burn injuries, there may be more than one responsible party. For example, an electrical fire in an apartment building may have been caused by negligent electrical contractor. However, a malfunctioning smoke alarm contributed to your injuries by not warning you of the fire.
Burn Injuries at Work
Many burn injuries occur in industrial settings from explosions, fires and chemical exposure. If you are injured at work, you are entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation, such as payment of medical expenses and lost wages. If the injury was caused by someone other than you or your employer, you may be entitled to additional damages for pain and suffering by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
