Burn Injuries in Champaign-Urbana

Representation by a Champaign-Urbana Personal Injury Lawyer

Individuals who receive severe burn injuries can have their lives drastically altered in many different ways. They can become permanently scarred and disfigured, and they can also suffer from serious health complications. Burn injuries can also be very expensive, as they can lead to costly emergency medical care, rehabilitation, reconstructive surgery and other medical needs.

According to data cited by the American Burn Association, about 450,000 burn injuries receive medical attention each year. There are also about 40,000 hospitalizations related to burn injuries per year, including about 30,000 that are at hospital burn centers. Furthermore, 3,400 people lose their lives every year due to fire and burn deaths. While some burn injuries are caused by natural disasters or pure accident, others are caused by negligent individuals or entities. For example, a car accident caused by a drunk driver or a defective auto part can lead a vehicle fire that harms an innocent victim. In another example, when an apartment manager does not take care of an obvious fire hazard, he or she could place tenants and visitors at risk of being harmed in a fire.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit

When your burn injury was caused through no fault of your own, you have options for pursing compensation for the damages you suffered, such as medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering. You can do this by filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, though this should only be done with the help of an experienced lawyer. At Patel Law, PC, our Champaign personal injury attorneys can help you prove that your injury was caused by the other party's acts of negligence. They can also help you prove the full cost of the damages you endured and will likely endure in the future. Contact us so we can provide you with a free consultation!
