There is nothing fun or convenient about a burn injury. To add to the difficult and often painful situation, burn injuries can often be prevented. Therefore, if you or someone you know has recently suffered from a burn, you could benefit from contacting a burn injuries lawyer. At Gerling Law, we have both experience and knowledge and have successfully assisted many individuals who are just like you. Now, let us help you properly heal and move on with your life.

A Burn Injuries Lawyer Can Help

According to Stanford Children’s Health, burns and fires are a common cause of accidental death in both children and adults and account for an estimated 3,500 adult and child deaths per year. Some of the most common types of burns that ultimately lead to an injury include the following: fire and flame burns, scald burns, contact burns, electrical burns, and chemical burns. When an injury does occur, they often cause extreme pain, and in worst case scenarios, can lead to severe infections and even disfiguration.
While a burn injuries lawyer cannot undo the pain and suffering endured by the victim, having a professional attorney on your side can make the ongoing legal process move much smoother and faster. After all, if the burn injury stemmed from an accident due to someone else’s negligence, then you could be entitled to compensation. The team at Gerling Law will fight for that compensation on your behalf. We fully understand that compensation does not assist with the healing process. However, a monetary settlement can help with medical bills, missed wages, and specialists’ fees. More so, compensation can help relieve some of your stress and dismay.
