A burn injury can be the result of many different circumstances, from auto accidents to explosions. These injuries are extremely painful and often require long recovery time or surgeries. When your injuries are caused by someone else’s negligent or reckless actions, you have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. At Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., we have been handling these types of cases for more than 75 years. We have the experience and knowledge to get you the compensation you need and deserve after a serious accident in Illinois.
Burn injuries are categorized as first-degree, second-degree, third-degree or, in extreme cases, fourth-degree. Most people can recover from first- or second-degree burns with no long-lasting consequences. However, a third- or fourth- degree burn requires immediate medical attention and can lead to infections, blood loss, shock and other complications. In the most serious circumstances, these burns can even be fatal.
Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:
The accidents that lead to burn injuries are often caused by human error. In order to get the compensation you need to cover lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering, you and your attorney must prove that someone else’s negligence caused your injuries. Where and how the accident occurred are major factors in determining liability. We can go over all of the details of the situation to determine if you have a case.
Because of the statute of limitations in Illinois, you only have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. That is why it is imperative that you hire an attorney from our firm as soon as possible. The more time we have to go over all of the facts of your case, the better prepared we will be to get you the result you want.
After a serious injury, you need to be represented by someone with the skill and experience to fight for you. At Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., we’re committed to our clients’ needs.
