Are you in mental, emotional and physical anguish after a burn injury that was caused by someone else's negligence? I can help.

I have news for you: you do not have to shoulder this burden alone. The following information is crucial to help you determine how you can get the compensation you deserve, the treatment you need, and the peace of mind from being able to put this burn injury trauma behind you, for good.

The impact of a burn injury on your life can be severe, as you are no doubt learning. Everything, from your job to your relationships to your financial and emotional well-being, is affected.

In addition, the physical pain and suffering associated with these types of injuries can be intense. You may be looking at permanent nerve damage or scarring, disfigurement, or long-term disability. You may be dependent on others for the rest of your life.

Second degree burns are still traumatic injuries and victims should be compensated.

The law offers protection for burn injury victims from being financially devastated by an accident that wasn't your fault. Whether your injuries were caused by a car or workplace accident, a defective product, a chemical burn, a missing smoke detector, faulty electric wiring, or any other reason, you are legally entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Lost wages, including any future income you will be losing because of your injuries.
  • Medical bills, including any surgeries.
  • Rehabilitation costs.
  • Counseling.
  • Pain and suffering.

Trying to cover these costs on your own, which can total in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, would financially cripple most people. Because of this, it is strongly advised that you talk to a Las Vegas burn injury attorney to find out how you can recover maximum compensation.

Delaying calling an attorney can hurt your case, because evidence is damaged and lost with time, and having strong evidence is often a crucial factor in successful burn injury victim cases. My firm, Day & Nance, will consult with you for free. We have been successfully representing burn injury victims in the Las Vegas area for over 25 years.

Here are some important considerations for burn injury victims and their families, when deciding whether to seek legal counsel:

  1. Second degree burns are still traumatic injuries, and the victim should be compensated.

    Most second-degree burns heal on their own within 10 to 14 days, however, the pain and suffering caused by this type of burn can be intense, even if short-term, and medical bills and other expenses should be compensated by the party responsible. Talk to a Las Vegas burn injury attorney: you are not legally responsible for the cost of your treatment.
  2. Emotional pain for a burn injury victim can be just as intense as the physical pain.

    Crushing depression, acute anxiety, and post traumatic stress are typical in the aftermath of a serious burn injury. Surgeries and physical therapy are only part of a burn injury patient's rehabilitative process. The victim will need ongoing emotional support from family members in order to adjust to life after the accident. Counseling is often recommended for the entire family, and can be a crucial factor in the burn injury victim's ability to cope with his or her new reality.

    Counseling, in addition to the surgeries and other rehabilitative work, can be prohibitively expensive. A burn injury victim should never receive sub par treatment due to lack of money. Get the legal help you need to get all your expenses compensated. Help your loved one get the best treatment available, and the best shot at a normal life after a burn injury. This is not the time to be cheap or to let worries about financial expenses control your decisions.
