Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

burn injury lawyerBurn injuries happen far more often than people may realize. They are almost commonplace among Americans, in regards to how frequently they occur. In fact, according to the American Burn Association, there are approximately 1.1 million burn injuries every year. While some of these injuries can be self-inflicted, there are many cases where these injuries occur as a result of somebody else’s negligence to protect your safety. Whether it be on the job or on vacation in a hotel, burn injuries are serious. If you or someone you love has suffered from a burn injury, it may be in your best interest to contact Cohen & Cohen, a trusted and experienced law firm serving the Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and the surrounding areas, which specializes in burn injuries.

What causes a burn injury?

There are several ways a burn injury can occur. All burn injuries, however, typically involve skin cells dying and various disfigurement to the skin area affected. It can cause serious scarring, which usually either darkens or lightens the skin pigment, and toughen the area burned. Some of the most common causes of a burn injury include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • Product defects
  • Negligence
  • Fire or flame
  • Hot surfaces
  • Hot liquid or steam
  • Exposure to chemicals
  • Hot metal
  • Electrical shock
  • Abuse

Regardless of the cause, burn injuries can cause serious damage. Whether it leave semi-permanent or permanent damages, burn injuries almost always require intense medical care whether it be hospitalizations, repeated doctor’s visits, physical therapy, surgeries, cosmetic care, and even lost time at your workplace. The American Burn Association also estimates that annually there are approximately 40,000 burn injuries that cause for hospitalization, 30,000 of which went straight to intensive burn care.

These visits, depending on the treatment, can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for proper medical care and treatment. This figure does not even account for the extended medical and cosmetic care that may be required to care for the physical damage. In the worst cases, the consequences of the burn injury are permanent. Treating these injuries can be extremely costly. It should come as no surprise that the American medical system is expensive, and burn injuries are no exception.

Why should I hire a burn injury lawyer?

Largely all burn injuries cause emotional trauma.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
