Burn Injuries Mean Long Term Treatment
Burn injuries require significant long-term care and treatment. It is very likely that the victim will spend extensive time in the hospital burn unit. Infections, nerve damage and/or limited range of motion are common. Healing from this type of injury is not a short term ordeal. Once the physical trauma has healed, the emotional pain and damage to the victim’s self image may last a lifetime.
Compensation for Burn Injuries
The victim of a burn injury may be unable to return to work for an extended period of time. If the burn injury occurred as the result of an on the job accident, the victim may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Sometimes the accident is caused by a third party while on the job; in this case, you may be entitled to file a claim against that third party while you seek workers’ compensation benefits from your employer.
