Burn Injuries

Burns are among the leading causes of accidental death in Illinois and across the United States. Burn injuries cause some of the most intense and prolonged pain of any injury, both before and during treatment. When burns are severe, skin grafts, reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation and physical therapy are extremely expensive, and often can do little to address permanent scarring and disfigurement.

Common factors in many second and third degree thermal burns are missing and nonfunctioning smoke detectors, missing safety equipment, noncompliance with fire codes, defective or improperly used products such as space heaters, faulty electrical wiring, explosions, cigarettes, and automobile accidents or other vehicle collisions. Chemical burns, hot water scalding, electrical burns, and light or laser burns also can be extremely severe.

The burn injury lawyers at ZRFM work with experts who promptly investigate your claim, examine evidence, and interview witnesses. By thoroughly analyzing your legal and medical situation, we can determine the parties who may have been at fault for your burn injury or for the wrongful death of a loved one.

Our burn injury attorneys will aggressively make your case during settlement or at trial, taking into account the full range of your injuries including pain, suffering, economic loss, and conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and the anguish that catastrophic burn injuries can cause.
