There are many causes of burn injuries, including fires, explosions in coal mines and industrial workplaces, electrical accidents and motor vehicle accidents. Whatever the cause, serious burn injuries cause much suffering, including physical pain and psychological trauma.
At the Manchin Injury Law Group in Fairmont, we are committed to helping seriously injured people obtain medical care and the compensation that can help them rebuild their lives. Our team of burn injury attorneys is highly knowledgeable concerning personal injury law and determined to help burn injury victims obtain the compensation they deserve.
When representing you, we will launch a comprehensive investigation of the accident to determine how it happened and who was responsible. Our law firm works with a number of investigators, including fire experts, engineers and other specialists who can provide important insights into these matters. In a case involving a fire or explosion in a workplace, there may also be an investigation by OSHA or state agencies. Our lawyers will monitor this investigation and use information it produces to support your case.
The Manchin Injury Law Group will make a full assessment of your losses for inclusion in your claim, including medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses. This will include punitive damages if circumstances allow. We will work hard to obtain maximum compensation as allowed by law.
In cases involving very serious burn injuries, we work with a life-care planner. This medical professional will interview the victim, victim’s family, medical providers and other specialists to develop a life-care plan. This plan will outline the victim’s needs for medical care, cosmetic surgery, psychological counseling, rehabilitation services and other needs.
The Manchin Injury Law Group will then seek the funds that can pay for those services, plus money for all other compensable losses.
