Burn and Scar injuries can occur in a wide range of accidents, including workplace accidents, auto accidents, slips and falls, etc. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the accident, the attorneys of LePore ♦ Luizzi can help you get the compensation that you deserve and need.
The amount of compensation you can expect from any burn or scar injury depends on the severity of the burn or scar. With regard to burns,
- A 3rd degree burn is the most serious. It involves thick scarring and may damage nerve endings.
- A 2nd degree burn is very painful and will typically leave some scarring.
- A 1st degree burn does not leave a scar, typically just causing peeling and discoloration.
Scarring is more subjective and is not measured in degrees. It generally depends upon where the scar is on your body and how it looks approximately 1 year after the accident, which is the time it usually takes for a scar to heal as well as it will heal. Generally, obvious scars to exposed body parts (face, hands, legs, arms, etc.) are worth more in compensation terms than a scar to a part of your body that the public will not generally see.
For 2nd and 3rd degree burns and scars, it is important to consult with a plastic surgeon to see what can be done or not done to correct your condition. The expense for corrective surgery is one of the items of damage that can be recovered from the negligent party in a lawsuit. For this reason, determining the best course of treatment and building a case that shows the extent of your injury is critical the proper prosecution of your claim.
