Burns are among the most painful injuries a person can experience. If you have sustained serious burns as a result of another person’s negligence, you have the right to hold him or her legally accountable. The Raleigh burn injury lawyers at Maginnis Law can help. Our firm helps North Carolinians across the state when they have been injured because of the carelessness of another party. To discuss your case with a Raleigh burn injury lawyer, call Maginnis Law at 919.480.8526.
Burns can be caused by any number of incidents, including: automobile and truck accidents, motorcycle collisions, plant explosions, chemical exposure, manufacturing incidents, residential fires, and other occurrences. No matter the nature of the incident, if your burns were caused by a third-party’s negligence, you are entitled to fair compensation. What is fair is dependent upon how badly you have been injured and how those injuries, including burns, have impacted and will continue to impact your life. North Carolina recognizes a number of different types of “damages,” including:
(1) Past and future medical, pharmaceutical, and other health care expenses;
(2) Past and future lost wages and diminished earning capacity;
(3) Loss of use of a body part;
(4) Past and future physical and emotional pain and suffering;
(5) Past and future disfigurement.
Many of these damages are best calculated using expert witnesses, including life care planners and economists. Our firm will assist you in locating the experts needed to present your case. Without such experts, it can be difficult to recover full compensation in a serious burn injury case. We will also help highlight the daily difficulties associated with your burns, including the emotional trauma of disfigurement and pain.
Maginnis Law offers free in-person consultations to all burn injury victims. We are glad to travel to meet with you. If you decide to hire our firm, we offer contingency fee arrangements, meaning that you only pay attorneys’ fees if we make a financial recovery on your behalf.
