More Than Skin Deep: The Indelible Nature Of Burn Injuries
Severe burns caused by an electrical accident or explosion cause physical and emotional scarring, leaving the victim to cope with permanent disfigurement and bodily limitations. Deep or large burns may prevent the burn victim from working during the lengthy recovery period or permanently.
If you suffered a serious burn injury due to another’s negligence, the staff at Holland Injury Law, LLC, can help you recover compensation. Your injury claim is not just about money to us — it is about securing justice for our clients throughout the St. Louis area and preventing such accidents from happening again.
Treatment And Diagnosis Are Important To Your Health And Claim
Generally, burns fall into three categories: thermal, electrical or chemical. Serious burns can be the result of a fire, a car accident, electric shock or an explosion. Even a small blaze can cause severe burns.
Prompt and proper burn treatment helps prevent infection and other problems. For severe burns, doctors must remove the dead skin to allow the tissue underneath to heal, a process called debridement. When the tissue is too badly damaged to heal on its own, doctors use skin grafts atop the damaged areas. As the skins heals, you will need rehabilitation to prevent the burned skin from becoming immobile. Following a treatment and care plan strengthens your recovery and your injury claim. Failure to comply with treatment recommendations gives insurance companies a reason to deny your claim.
Burn Injuries Claims Require Timely Filing And Investigation
To make a successful claim against a liable party after a serious injury, you need supporting evidence.

Working with our firm as early as possible allows us to examine the site of the injury and gather testimonies and documents from appropriate parties.
