Sacramento Burn Injury Attorney

There are few injuries that are as painful and as terrifying to endure as burn injuries. Burn injuries are common to traffic accidents and some premises liability claims, and the damages associated with these injuries tend to be both extensive and ongoing. If someone else’s negligence leaves you with a serious burn injury, don’t wait to consult with an experienced Sacramento burn injury attorney. 

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can damage well beyond the outer skin, and when very serious, they can leave the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and even the bones in the affected area damaged. Burn injuries are slow to heal, are immensely painful, can lead to disfiguring scarring, and can cause life-threatening secondary health concerns as they heal. As the burned area begins to heal, the skin and underlying area thicken and tighten, which can actually cut off circulation in the area as healing continues (and may require medical intervention in the form of cuts). In fact, burn injuries are some of the most complicated and dangerous injuries you can endure. 

The Associated Damages

Serious burn injuries are often classified as catastrophic injuries, and the damages associated with these serious injuries tend to be immense. Consider the following:

  • Medical Costs – Because burn injuries are so serious, cause so much underlying damage, and can become even more dangerous as they heal, the associated medical expenses tend to mount quickly (with no letup in sight). Multiple surgeries into the future are common. 
  • Lost Earnings – While you focus on healing and regaining your health and well-being after being burned in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you will almost certainly miss a considerable amount of work (if you are able to return to work at all). If your burn injury interferes with your ability to do your job, your lost earnings will be even more considerable, and you may be looking at a serious reduction in lost earning potential and an altered career trajectory. 
  • Pain and Suffering – It is difficult to conceive of an injury that causes more intense physical pain and suffering than a serious burn injury. Even after the burn has healed completely, you may be looking at multiple plastic surgeries to help repair the disfigurement that you’ve suffered (and that is likely to be emotionally devastating). 

All told, the damages associated with a serious burn injury can be physically, financially, and emotionally overwhelming.
