The Brannon Law Firm represents victims who have suffered burns from many different sources, such as open flames, chemicals, industrial equipment, fire places, gas tank explosions, and electrocution. Many of these victims also suffered substantial and/or permanent impairment from the severe and often unexpected exposure to the smoke and other dangerous fumes that often accompany the burn injury itself. Burn injuries are extremely painful and create significant costs for individuals and their families. These victims usually face multiple surgeries, reconstructive / plastic surgery, medical complications, physical therapy, and a lengthy recovery. Even with some of the best physicians and plastic surgeons, many burn victims suffer from permanent disfigurement and impairment. Dealing with a severe burn injury is usually a lifelong struggle.
The most common causes of burn and electrocution accidents in Ohio include:
- House and building fires;
- Electrical equipment;
- Gas explosions;
- Chemical explosions; and
- Job-related accidents.
Oftentimes, the cause of the fire or event giving rise to the burn injury is contested by the party responsible for the accident. At the Brannon Law Firm, we take action immediately by sending our professional investigators and accident re-constructionists to preserve all of the evidence and determine what happened. This is an important step in order to hold negligent parties responsible for their wrongful conduct.
Victims of burn injuries are generally entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, property damage and permanency of their injury. If you have suffered burns as the result of someone else’s negligent or reckless conduct, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries. The Brannon Law Firm has successfully represented many victims and families that have suffered severe burn injuries. Our attorneys will provide you with a free consultation at your home, in our office, or a hospital room to inform you of your legal rights.
