Our Clients Receive the Best Medical Care Available and Largest Recoveries

Severe burn injuries can take a devastating toll on you and your family, leading to permanent physical disabilities, which will often require extensive and lifelong medical treatment and prevent you from earning the living that you depend upon to provide for yourself and your family.

That’s why it’s critical that you take steps to protect yourself and your family because—no matter what your company and its insurance reps tell you—they will pay you pennies on the dollar for your injuries and never provide you with the best medical care or the compensation you need to care for yourself and your family for the rest of your life.

When you become our client, you’ll have access to the best reconstructive surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, and medical providers in the Country, so that you’re able to focus on your recovery while we work on ensuring you and your family receive the largest recovery possible.

Worker’s Comp Will Prevent You From Seeing the Best Doctors and Pay You Pennies on the Dollar

If you or a loved one were seriously burned in connection with a work-related fire or explosion, the company and its insurers will do everything possible to avoid responsibility, blame you for your injuries, limit your recovery to workers’ compensation benefits, and prevent you and your family from obtaining the compensation you need and deserve.

The company and its workers comp insurer will also try to prevent you from treating with the best burn specialists and plastic surgeons by only agreeing to pay for your medical bills if you go to to doctors chosen by the insurance company.

Regardless of what the company may tell you, their goal is to pay you and your family as little as possible.  Don’t place your future in their hands.

Burn Injury Facts

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):

  • Around one million burn injuries occur per year in the United States
  • These burns result in approximately 7,000 deaths per year
  • The average medical costs associated with treating a patient with third-degree burns is $535,000.

The Difference Between First, Second, and Third-Degree Burns

  • First Degree (Superficial Thickness) – A first degree burn injury indicates that only the upper-most layer of skin (known as the epidermis) was burned. Similar to sunburns, the skin appears red but will momentarily turn white when pressure is applied. First degree burns rarely require serious medical attention.
  • Second Degree (Partial Thickness – Superficial) – A second degree burn injury indicates that both the top layer of skin (the epidermis) and the second layer of skin (the dermis) have been burned. These injuries often lead to blistering and will appear dry with a whitish coloring. Depending upon the depth of the burn, a skin graft may be necessary.
  • Third Degree (Partial Thickness – Deep) – A third degree burn injury indicates serious damage to both the top layer of skin, the epidermis, and the second layer of skin, the dermis.  Skin grafting and ongoing medical care will most likely be necessary.
