Winston-Salem Burn Injury Lawyers
Burn Injuries Can Cause a Lifetime of Pain
The attorneys at Comerford Chilson & Moser, L.L.P., in Winston-Salem, have extensive experience with the investigation and presentation of claims involving extensive burn injuries.
These cases are not only characterized by long periods of intensive care and excruciating pain compounded by constant discomfort, but they also present certain legal challenges.
These can include:
- Projecting the expense of future treatments
- Calculating the costs of an extended period of disability and therapy
- Somehow assigning a value to the sheer suffering involved in recovery from severe burns
All before the treating physicians themselves can know how many rounds of surgery and convalescence might be involved in the patient’s recovery.
Insurance Companies Protect Their Own Bottom Line During Burn Injury Cases
Too often, insurance companies refuse to pay fair and just claims in burn injury and other serious injury cases, ignoring the future costs of therapy, continuing treatment, or additional disabilities. When they do, the only way to hold them accountable is in our courts.
The problem here is to overcome the resistance of the insurers to acknowledge the likelihood that years of treatment and rehabilitation will be necessary to achieve the maximum physical recovery possible.
In establishing the full amount of your losses and future needs, we back up every element of your damages demand with expert testimony.
Such elements of damages as pain, discomfort, scarring, and disfigurement are also important components of your damages demand that must not be overlooked. The temptation in severe burn injury cases is to accept a settlement offer at an early stage of the case, only to find later that the settlement is insufficient to cover the full range of the victim’s future treatment needs.
