Reliable, Compassionate Legal Representation for Burn Injury Victims

There are 500,000 burn injuries that require medical attention in the U.S. every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Up to 50,000 burn patients require hospitalization, and nearly half must be admitted to a specialized Burn Unit or Intensive Care Unit (ICU), according to the National Institutes of Health. It doesn’t have to be this way. Although burn injuries are rather common, they are more preventable than you may realize.

Burn injury statistics show that at least fifty percent of all burn injuries are preventable. An ounce of prevention can protect our families and our children (children are the primary victims) from burn injuries caused by scalding, heat, harsh chemicals, radiation, electricity, friction or during a car accident. Prompt investigation and adequate funding are essential. It is critically important to preserve the product which might have caused your burn injury, after the accident. Take photographs of the burn injury near in time to the injury when possible.

Sweetser Law Office attorneys have a strong grasp of defective product law, premise liability law, worker’s compensation law and construction law, experience and thorough knowledge of distinctive injuries associated with different types of burns – such as electrocution burns and scald burns – and the treatment methods. Our firm will use our an extensive network of experts ranging from chemical engineers, plastic surgeons, physical capacity evaluators, psychologists, and product designers, to hold those responsible accountable.

Burn Injury Cases Are ComplicatedSpokane Burn Injury Attorney

Burn injury cases are complex because burns are complicated injuries. Burns can affect not only the skin, but the blood vessels, muscles, nerves, and bone. Once the skin has been melted through, a person’s nerves are then traumatized which can cause severe permanent damage to the nervous damage and body tissues. Burn injury survivors can be disabled for life, or can be blinded for life, because of the accident.

In the most catastrophic cases, burn injury specialists at a burn injury center are required if the burn involved:

  • Partial Thickness burns greater than 10% of the total body surface (TBSA)
  • Burns on the face, hands, feet, major joints or genitalia
  • Third-Degree Burns
  • Electrical or Chemical Burns
  • Inhalation Injury
  • Burn Injury affecting patients with preexisting medical disorders
  • Patients with burns and trauma in which the burn poses a serious risk of death

There is no risk and no obligation to speak with a burn injury lawyer at Sweetser Law Office. No recovery means no fee. Call today.
