Burn injuries are one of the most painful injuries a person can endure, often leaving deep emotional scars along with lasting physical damage. The recovery can take months or even years and requires expensive specialized and long-term care.
Although some burn injuries are accidental, many are the result of someone else’s negligence and could have been prevented. In these cases, having an accomplished attorney on your side can be critical in receiving the compensation you need to cover all of the expenses associated with this type of injury.
Our Davie burn injury lawyers have years of experience fighting for the rights of burn victims, including recovering a one million dollar settlement for a man who was severely burned in a truck accident. With a proven track record of success, we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Types of Burn Injuries
Nothing can compare to the pain and suffering associated with a burn injury. Burns are classified in three different degrees, and the level of damage increases with each degree.
- First degree, or superficial, burns affect only the outer layer of skin and can result in painful, red and dry skin with blisters.
- Second-degree, or partial thickness, burns can damage the outer and underneath layers of skin causing painful blistering and swelling.
- Third-degree, also known as full thickness, burns are one of the worst categories of burns and can destroy the deepest layers of skin as well as underlying tissue.
In severe cases, a burn can damage a victim’s nerves, internal organs, muscles, bones and respiratory system. Deadly infections are also common after suffering from a severe burn. In these cases recovery can be emotionally, physically and mentally trying.
Victims may have to endure extended stays in a burn unit; may undergo several surgeries to have skin grafts implanted, as well as reconstructive and/or plastic surgery; and may have to participate in physical and emotional therapies in order to recover from their injuries.
Even after receiving specialized care for a number of months, disfigurement and severe scarring may never go away.
The medical bills for all of these treatments and extended care can be overwhelming to the victim and their family who may have also lost a needed source of income.
Our Davie burn injury lawyers know how devastating these injuries are and how they affect a victim and their family. That is why we are committed to helping burn victims fight for the MAXIMUM amount of compensation they need to recover from their injuries and reestablish financial stability.
