Burns Resulting From Negligence
When burn injuries are due to the negligence of another person or happen while you are on the job, you should talk to an experienced lawyer.

The job of the insurance company is to put those that experience a loss back to the same position they were at before the loss occurred. Unfortunately, insurance companies aren’t motivated by doing the right or fair thing. Most often, they will do whatever they can to settle with you for as little as possible. Don’t let that happen to you. If you sign a settlement agreement, you can’t be compensated for future burn treatments or other expenses. Don’t lose important legal rights. Talk to a lawyer before you sign anything.
