Cincinnati Burn Injury Attorney
A burn injury can take a very long time to heal and in some cases may never heal at all. Immediately after a burn injury a person risks infection, typically runs a fever and is always concerned about permanent scarring. Doctors typically recommend plastic surgery at some point in the future. Burn injury victims must often live with long-lasting chronic pain and must learn to deal with permanent disfigurement or scarring. Disfigurement often triggers depression. Studies show that children and young women in particular often experience negative psychological and social consequences as a result of visual effects of a burn injury, especially when scarring occurs on visible body parts: the face and hands.
Immediately after a car fire, hot liquid spill or chemical spill that results in a burn injury, the focus is naturally on survival. Burn injury victims and their families may not realize the long-term negative consequences that a burn injury can have until more time passes. As a result, it is important not to sign waivers or accept settlement offers from insurance claims adjusters prematurely. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and insurance adjusters will attempt to settle a case quickly and cheaply.
