St. Louis Chemical Burn Attorney
It is a rare person who has not experienced the searing pain of burn. Fortunately, most burns are only flesh wounds and do not result in serious, long-lasting physical damage. But a serious third degree burn, or greater, is more than just skin deep. Beneath the scarring, severe burns can cause serious internal organ damage and loss of mobility that can result in a lifetime of medical treatment and physical rehabilitation.

Why It Is Best to Talk to a Personal Injury Attorney
Burn injuries often cause medical problems many months and years after the pain subsides and the skin has scarred over. Insurance adjusters are quick to offer a settlement that may appear to be adequate to pay for damages. It is almost always better to talk to an attorney who understands the full amount of compensation you are entitled to, not just for the immediate medical costs, but for damages over a lifetime. We stay abreast of burn cases nationwide. We know the full value of compensation burn victims are awarded and we don't let the insurance company get away with low-ball settlement offers to our clients.
