Burn victims face grueling recovery

by | Sunday, May 10, 2015

Living with a burn injury after a serious accident can be quite challenging. There are extreme physical and psychological consequences facing burn survivors every day. Some of the most common include the following:

— Debridement. Most burn patients agree that no amount of pain medication is sufficient to dull the excruciating pain caused by the necessary debridement of the burned skin and tissue after a severe burn. Medical personnel slough off the damaged areas to allow new skin growth.

— Painful skin grafts. Burn patients often endure numerous skin grafts to preserve range of motion, prevent contractions and improve the appearance of the burned area.

— Disfigurement. This can be one of the most harrowing consequences of a burn injury. Imagine having your own children run away screaming in terror after glimpsing your altered appearance. While kids may adjust over time, patients’ injuries may be so extensive that they can never again hug or hold their children without causing themselves agonizing pain.

— Dependency. Those with burn injuries that alter the range of motion of their limbs may discover that they are almost or completely dependent upon others for their personal care and activities of daily living. This can be particularly demoralizing to formerly independent wage earners who must now turn to others for their most basic care needs.

Our attorneys understand the life-long complications and struggles facing our burn victim clients. That’s why we aggressively pursue claims against the individuals and entities who are liable for our clients’ injuries and reduced quality of life.

If you have been seriously burned in an explosive accident, contact our office to learn of the options available to you.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
