Virginia Burn Injury Lawyer
Fighting for the Medical & Financial Assistance You Need
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. If you have suffered a burn injury, be sure to contact our burn injury attorneys in Virginia to see if you may be entitled to compensation.
Don't let your story end this way: Call the experienced Virginia burn injury attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC to begin building your case at (855) 880-8163 or by contacting us online.
What are the Consequences of Burn Injuries
In addition to the obvious physical disfigurement burns victims experience, the following factors may make life even more difficult:
- Physical and emotional trauma
- Constant pain
- Damage to internal organs
- Increased sensitivity to temperature
- Problems with personal relationships
- Loss of self-esteem
Families and friends of burn victims will also find their lives changing overnight, as they support the victim with round-the-clock nursing care, psychological support and financial aid.
Moving Forward After a Severe Burn Injury
To rebuild their lives, burn injury victims and their families require comprehensive legal knowledge to sort out the facts of their case, pursue the compensation to which they are entitled under the law, and cover the costs associated with:
- Mounting medical bills
- Loss of income due to being unable to work
- Job retraining
- Physical and emotional suffering
Leave Difficult Casework Up to an Attorney
Burn injury claims have notoriety in legal circles for their difficulties and complexities. The extensive harm done to the claimant often means the cost of care and total damages will be steep, possibly ranging into six- or seven-figures. Insurance companies will be even more stubborn than usual when so much money is on the line, so you can expect harsh competition from them at every step of your claim, possibly right up to litigation.
One of the most effective ways to ensure you are prepared for whatever the opposing insurance company brings to your case is by hiring our Virginia burn injury attorneys. When you retain our services, you can permit us to act on your behalf as much or as little as you like. Most clients are happy to let us take the lead on their case and do as much as we can for them, which buys them much-needed time to focus on rest and recuperation.
Some of the things we can do for you while working on your burn injury claim include:
- Researching the full extent of your injuries and disabilities by using medical records and expert opinions.
- Discovering and utilizing evidence of liability for your burns, such as videos or photographs.
- Calculating your damages accurately, perhaps with the assistance of a financial expert.
- Communicating with all insurance companies involved in your claim.
- Preparing your case for litigation if a fair settlement is not offered.
- Going to court on your behalf when necessary.
