According to the American Burn Association, burn injuries are one of the most common causes of morbidity and mortality. Over 480,000 people in America obtain emergency room care for burns annually, and no less than 40,000 of these burn victims were admitted to the hospital for major burns.

Many medical experts agree that burns are often one of the worst injuries from which to recover. They are extremely painful, and extensive burns come with expensive medical care and the potential to leave lasting and very obvious scars and impact mobility.

A compassionate Cobb County burn injury lawyer understands how burns can impact the victim and their family in almost every facet of their lives. They could use this understanding to work hard to get you the financial recovery you deserve for such a devastating injury. Reach out to a catastrophic injury lawyer today.

Burn Injury Information

Burn injuries can occur at home, work, on the road, and nearly anywhere. They can be caused by several different situations, including:

  • Electrical shock
  • Chemical spills and exposure
  • Scalding or boiling liquids or chemicals
  • Steam
  • Fire

Burns can range from first-degree that damage the uppermost layer of the skin to fourth-degree, which involves tissues all the way down to the muscle and bone. More serious burns often require skin grafting and other plastic surgeries, extended hospital stays, surgeries, and even amputations. Burn victims sometimes face complications such as infections, skin graft failures, and organ damage.

When the negligent actions of someone else, such as an employer, a product manufacturer, a landlord, or a care provider cause a burn, the victim or their family could rely on a burn injury lawyer in Cobb County for help. An attorney could determine how the burn occurred and who is liable. They could also work to help the victim receive compensation for all of their damages.

Damages in Cobb County Burn Lawsuits

Due to their potential severity and complications, as well as the potential for scarring, burns are very expensive injuries. When a burn is caused by the negligence of another person or party, they may be liable for paying for their injury-related expenses and other damages. Common damages in burn injury cases include:

  • Medical bills such as surgeries, hospital stays, medications, follow-up care
  • Occupational and physical therapy
  • Lost income
  • Lost future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of a limb or a bodily function

No Georiga Damage Caps

An experienced Cobb County burn injury attorney could build a strong case proving not only the liability of the defendant but also the extensive damages and life-changes suffered by the burn victim. There are no damage caps in Georgia as the Georgia Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that such caps breach the right to a jury trial established in the state constitution. Without damage caps impeding their recovery, burn victims have the potential to recover the damages they are entitled to receive.
