There are a number of situations in which Arizona residents may experience injuries. For some, those injuries will be minor, while others may face significant bodily harm or even death as a result. This is particularly true for burn-related traumas. What does happen if a catastrophic injury occurs from a burn? Where can victims and/or their family members turn for help?
A catastrophic injury is just as bad as it sounds. The damages incurred by this type of trauma are generally life-altering -- for the victim and/or his or her family members. Common catastrophic injuries include brain injuries, paralysis, disfigurement and death, the latter two being most common following burn injuries.
Disfigurement is not only physically painful, but it can also have a severe effect on one's emotional health. This type of injury leaves an ever constant reminder of the accident. The cost of recovery is typically beyond what most insurance carriers will cover, often leaving victims financially ruined on top of everything else. Help is available to get fair and full compensation for all the losses which may be attributed to a burn. More information about how an attorney can help achieve this is available on our website.
Whether a burn injury results in long-lasting scars or other disfigurements or even death, compensation can be sought and achieved for losses incurred due to a catastrophic injury. Damages that are typically recoverable in Arizona ---- which must be based upon proof of negligence by another party -- include medical and behavior health expenses, lost wages and/or benefits and future care. An experienced attorney can be of assistance to victims and/or their family members in pursuing the financial relief they need following a traumatic incident.
