Burns always hurt. Even if it’s a minor burn, the pain can be intense. Burns of a greater degree can be far more than physically painful. And if the burn injury was due to someone else’s carelessness, you’re no doubt feeling even worse, knowing that the entire incident could have been prevented.
You will need medical care for your burn injuries, and if the injuries were severe, those medical bills will mount up. You may need to take time off work to recover, and that sets off another worry about making ends meet while you can’t work. You shouldn’t have to pay any of your burn-related expenses yourself if someone else were entirely to blame for the accident.

According to the Mayo Clinic, these are the most common causes of burn injuries:
Other causes of burns can be car accidents, explosions, product defects, and workplace accidents. If the burn is from the workplace, you may need to seek worker’s compensation benefits.
If you have suffered burn injuries, you will probably need medical treatment. The classifications of burn injuries show the severity of the burn. The more severe the burn, the more certain it is you will need medical treatment, and the more quickly.
Any burn can lead to scarring or disfigurement. The greater the degree of burn, the more likely the skin will be damaged and can become disfigured. Treatment may require skin grafts and multiple surgeries, as well as therapy. The damage to the skin can lead to reduced or restricted motion and can affect your sense of touch.
In order to obtain compensation for your injuries from your burn accident, we will need to pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit on your behalf. You may be eligible for two different types of compensation, called “damages.”
Economic damages include items with a specific monetary value attached, such as medical care, property damage, or lost wages. Noneconomic damages are intended to compensate you for the intangible costs of the accident, such as pain and suffering or disfigurement. Your attorney from OnderLaw will be able to assess the value of your claim and advise you what an appropriate settlement amount would be.
You may be eligible for the following damages:
