Defending Burn Injury Victims

The impact of a burn injury can be long-lasting and life-threatening. It can result in chronic pain, permanent scarring, infection, and even amputation.  According to the American Burn Association, close to 500,000 people go to the emergency room each year due to burn injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a burn injury due to the carelessness of another, you could be entitled to compensation.

Burn injuries can stem from many different types of causes many of which are the result of the careless and reckless behavior of an individual or company.

These include:

  • Contact with a fire or flame
  • Burn from an airbag following a car crash
  • Scalded by steam, hot water, or spilled coffee
  • Contact with hot objects
  • Electrical burn
  • Chemical burn
  • Fireworks or explosives
  • Cosmetic laser burns

How Investigation Works for Orlando Burn Injury Lawyers

The Orlando burn injury attorneys at Norden Leacox will investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Depending on the severity of the injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:

  • The cost of past and future medical care and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages in the past and the future.
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain & suffering
  • Mental anguish

If the party responsible for the burn injury acted in a reckless or intentional manner, in addition to the damages listed above, you may be entitled to punitive damages.

The Orlando burn injury attorneys at Norden Leacox have over 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases and burn injuries.  They will provide you with a free consultation advising you of your legal rights, what courses of action they recommend, and a strategy to try and get your case resolved.  If the case cannot be resolved out of Court, the experienced lawyers of Norden Leacox will file a lawsuit on your behalf, and aggressively represent you in court.  Although most cases settle prior to trial, if the case requires a jury trial, they will present your case to the jury using the many years of experience they have defending insurance companies and large corporations, in addition to representing injured people.

Mistakes to Avoid Making During Your Case

 You likely have not been involved in a burn accident before and, therefore, haven’t had to go through a case. There are so many things about litigation that you probably don’t know yet. We strongly advise you hire one of our Orlando burn injury attorneys right away so that you make the most of your one chance at full compensation. You will also avoid making some big mistakes with a lawyer by your side.

A very common mistake that people make because they didn’t talk to a lawyer yet is giving the insurance company a recorded statement about their burn injury. The insurance is going to be looking for any way to avoid having to give you compensation. They use a recorded statement as a tool to get you to implicate yourself and thereby rid themselves of the responsibility to compensate you fairly.
