Kansas Burns and Electrical Injury Attorneys
Burns and electrical injuries are painful and lead to high medical expenses and other damages.
The pain of sustaining a burn or an electrical injury is often acute and severe. Additionally, these types of injuries can lead to severe scarring, nerve damage, brain injury, and even death. Whether it be a car accident or a defective condition on another’s property that caused your injury, the trusted attorneys at Neustrom & Associates will evaluate the legal strength of your claim and explore every possible avenue for recovering monetary compensation for the losses you have incurred.
Causes of Burns and Electrical Injuries
There are a wide range of accidents that can lead to a victim sustaining burns and electrical injuries. These include:
- Motor vehicle accident
- Fallen or damaged power lines
- Defective appliances
- Electrical wiring in disrepair
- Gas tank explosions
- Kitchen fires
An accident involving any of the above can result in serious injuries such as:
- Heart attack
- Brain injury
- Nerve damage
- Muscle damage
- Internal bleeding
It is also possible that the victim may have died from their injuries. Electrocution, or death caused by electric shock, is all too often a result of these types of accidents.
Damages in Burn and Electrical Injury Cases
Damages refer to the losses you have sustained as the result of your accident-caused injuries to which you are entitled to monetary compensation. Determining damages is legally complex and requires legal counsel with specialized knowledge of how personal injury claims work.
Generally speaking, if you are harmed due to the negligent action or inaction of another, you have a right to be compensated for your losses. You have a right to recover for the following:
- Medical bills
- Cost of future medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain, suffering with loss of function
- Counseling and therapy
- Wrongful death
Those who have sustained serious burns or electrical injuries often require expensive medical treatment involving things like skin grafting surgeries. They also need extensive follow-up care such as physical therapy and burn victim counseling.
Avenues of recovering for damages sustained will depend on the cause of the accident. If the injury was the result of a car accident, the at-fault driver will be held liable for losses sustained. If an accident occurred at work, workers’ compensation may be on the hook for paying certain damage claims. There are also instances where multiple parties will be found to have all contributed to the occurrence of the accident. In these cases, more than one person or entity may have to pay your award for damages.
