Atlanta Burn Injury Attorneys
Fighting for Compensation on Behalf of Burn Injury Victims in Atlanta
Burn injuries are a severe type of catastrophic injury that frequently inflict intense pain and suffering as well as ongoing mental distress. If you sustained burn injuries due to the negligence of someone else, you may be eligible for compensation.
At Cunningham Bounds, we are committed to advocating for victims of negligence who have sustained burn injuries that affect their quality of life. Our Atlanta burn injury lawyers have many decades of experience and can help you pursue all available legal remedies and hold the responsible party or parties accountable. With billions recovered in settlements and verdicts for injury victims, you can trust that your case is in great hands.
Why You Should Consider Hiring a Lawyer after Suffering Burn Injuries
Severe burns will typically require costly medical treatments to ease your pain and limit the extent of scarring and disfigurement. You may also be hospitalized for days, weeks, or more, meaning you will likely miss a significant amount of work. Depending on the severity of the burns, you may not be able to return to work at all. You should not be expected to shoulder these financial burdens when the cause of your burns was not your fault.
While a negligent person or organization may be liable for your injuries, they will likely go to great lengths to avoid paying you what you are owed under the law. You may struggle to meaningfully negotiate with insurance companies or arrive at a fair settlement. That is where a skilled legal professional comes in. Our Atlanta burn injury attorneys can handle the hard work on your behalf so you can focus on resting and getting better. We will do everything in our power to secure full compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and any other damages.
Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
Suffering burn injuries does not automatically entitle you to damages through a personal injury claim. To have a case, you must be able to prove that another party’s negligence led to your injuries. The reality is that many incidents that cause burn injuries are avoidable and are the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing.
You may have a case if you suffered burn injuries because of:
- A car, motorcycle, truck, or pedestrian accident caused by a negligent driver
- A defective product
- Medical malpractice
You may also be able to get compensation through a worker’s compensation claim if you were injured at your workplace or while on the job. Worksite explosions and toxic exposure are two common on-the-job scenarios that can lead to burn injuries.
If you are not sure whether you have any means of recovering compensation for burn injuries, our team at Cunningham Bounds is happy to review your circumstances. We can determine liability and advise you of your legal options.
Consequences of Burn Injuries
Even burn injuries that only affect a small area of the body can still produce painful, lifelong effects. Contrary to what some believe, these injuries also tend to not be exclusively cosmetic, even after extensive treatment.
Burn injuries can lead to:
- Amputation of one or more limbs
- Chronic pain
- Emotional distress
- Loss of feeling in the affected area
- Loss of movement in the affected area
- Soft tissue damage
