Fire accidents and explosions occur more often than you might think, and the injuries from these accidents can be devastating. If you have suffered severe burns or other types of injuries caused by an explosion, you may be entitled to compensation. One or more parties are frequently liable to injury victims of fire accidents and explosions.
Contact a personal injury attorney at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C. to discuss your injuries and potential claim. Injuries from catastrophic events such as fires and explosions often require expensive medical care that can quickly become unmanageable. This is especially true when your injuries prevent you from working and getting a paycheck.
Blast impacts from explosions can cause many different types of severe injuries, including hearing loss, vision loss, broken bones, amputations, and burns. Additional injuries include neck and back injuries, brain injuries, lung damage, and other internal injuries. When these injuries are not fatal, they frequently cause permanent disabilities.
Suffering severe burns is a horrific experience. Severe burns are very painful, and they often require significant, long-term medical treatments and care. Burn injury victims may have to go through many procedures such as skin grafts, synthetic skin healing, and other surgeries. They also may need to go through rehabilitation and physical therapy.
Additionally, those who have suffered severe injuries due to fires and explosions are typically at a higher risk of contracting serious infections. They must be continually monitored for signs of infection around their open wounds and surgical sites. It is sometimes necessary to treat or prevent infections with antibiotics administered intravenously.
When it comes to severe injuries, maximum compensation for your claim is critical. You and your family need the security of knowing that you can afford all necessary medical care and that income lost or reduced because of injuries will be replaced. In addition to medical care, lost wages, and lost earning capacity, our attorneys will aggressively fight for your financial recovery for all of your other losses.
When appropriate, they will also seek compensation for pain and suffering, property damage, and disability. If you have lost a loved one in a catastrophic accident, we may be able to help secure compensation for surviving family members under a wrongful death claim.
If you or a loved one has suffered severe or fatal injuries in a catastrophic accident, contact a personal injury attorney at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C. for a consultation. Our attorneys do not charge for initial consultations. They also will not collect legal fees for their time and service until they secure a financial recovery for your claim.
