Burn injuries cause physical and psychological damage to over 2.4 million people across America each year, leaving scars that may last a lifetime. Even if the victims undergo successful reconstruction surgery, there are many serious effects that remain hidden from view.
Pursuing compensation from those responsible may be a burden on a traumatized victim, some of whom choose to blame themselves, rather than seeking the compensation to which they are fully entitled.
