Burn Injury

A fire can irreparably change a life in seconds. Injuries caused by flames, explosions and chemical burns are notoriously hard to treat and can cause disfigurement, blindness and other physical disabilities that rival those of any catastrophic injury situation.

When these injuries occur, it is often due to the negligence of another party. Fires and explosions at factories, in motor vehicle collisions or caused by defective products are some of the many consequences of negligence by employers, manufacturers and individuals.

Compensation Through Workers' Comp, SSDI And Litigation

If you were injured on the job, you may need our services only to ensure that your workers' compensation claim is being paid through your employer.

However, if your injury was not job-related or if it was at least partially caused by the negligence of a nonemployer third party, we may be able to seek separate compensation through a personal injury lawsuit or out-of-court settlement. These parties could be equipment manufacturers, premises owners or others who played a part in the creation, maintenance or operation of equipment or products that injured you.

Also, if your burn is preventing you from earning money in the long term, or permanently, we can assist you in applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) to help pay your ongoing medical and living expenses.

In any case, it is always best to consult with an experienced attorney, like those at The Best Injury Law Firm, who understands Michigan and federal laws and procedures and can secure compensation for your burn injury.
