Burn Injury Information
West Virginia Personal Injury Attorney
Burns are injuries to the skin that can be caused by extreme heat or cold, electrical shocks, radiation, explosions, or harmful chemicals. There are approximately 2.4 million burn injuries reported in the United States each year, with one million of those resulting in permanent disability and 8,000 to 12,000 resulting in death. If you have suffered a serious burn injury as a result of someone else's negligence, an attorney is prepared to seek compensation on your behalf for the losses you have sustained.
The attorney team at the Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC is committed to obtaining results on behalf of their personal injury clients.

Compensation for Burn Injuries
The settlements and jury awards given in burn injury cases are often substantial, due to the catastrophic nature of such injuries. The exact compensation you may be entitled to receive in your case will depend upon a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries and the extent of the damages you have experienced. You may be able to recover the cost of your medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation expenses, lifestyle impact, and pain and suffering.
