The attorneys at Solomon, Sherman, Gabay, Briskin & Sherman have experience helping injury victims who have sustained burn injuries in a wide variety of ways throughout the city. Often, our investigations uncover that the careless or negligent actions of other individuals or companies cause burn injuries. Some of the most common causes of severe burn injuries in Philly include the following:
Burn injuries are classified by their severity. A first-degree burn is considered the least serious (you can think of minor sunburn here). Third- and fourth-degree burns are considered the most severe, and these are life-threatening. Severe burns can affect every layer of skin and even reach into the muscle tissue or bone.
Victims who sustained severe burn injuries often lose significant mobility, sustain major scarring and disfigurement, and are extremely susceptible to infections, particularly during the recovery process. These injuries and the recovery process are incredibly painful.
Adequately calculating the total compensation that should be awarded to burn injury victims is complicated. Our serious injury attorneys like to recover both special damages and general damages on behalf of Philadelphia burn victims, which can include the following:
The total amount of compensation available in these cases will vary from case to case. The more severe the burn injury, the more likely a person will be to recover higher compensation amounts. Medical bills for third- and fourth-degree burns can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars, and burns of this severity will almost certainly result in a significant amount of pain and suffering for the victim.
