What Kinds of Damages Can I Recover After Sustaining a Burn Injury?

In the healthcare setting, burn injuries are characterized by their severity—first, second, or third degree—or their size. You might assume, then, that the value of a burn injury claim would correlate directly with the severity and size of the injury, but calculating damages in these cases is a complicated process. This is especially true since burn victims are often entitled to non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, scarring, and emotional distress, in addition to economic damages like medical bills and lost income.

If you or someone you love sustained a serious burn in a preventable accident and you want to hold the liable party financially accountable, contact The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny. Since 2002, our burn injury lawyers have been helping clients rebuild their lives by fighting for the compensation they need to restore their financial security.

From the moment you enter our office, we will talk with you honestly about your claim and treat you with the utmost professionalism and compassion. We will provide detailed answers to your questions and explain exactly how we will help you fight for the maximum payout possible. Call 212-421-0300 today to schedule a free case evaluation with a personal injury attorney in New York City.

Let’s explore the kinds of damages you can recover after sustaining a burn injury:

  1. Medical Expenses

Even minor burns that only cover a small portion of the body can cost tens of thousands of dollars to treat. Fortunately, by filing a personal injury claim, you may be able to recover funds for:

  • Ambulance fees;
  • Hospital bills;
  • Prescription medication;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Mental health counseling;
  • Transportation to and from appointments;
  • Mobility aids;
  • Medical devices; and
  • Surgery.
  1. Financial Losses

In addition to the direct expenses associated with treating your burns, there are indirect damages that can be included in the settlement calculations. These include:

  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of earning potential; and
  • Lost benefits.
  1. Non-Economic Damages

Permanent scarring is one of the most devastating effects of a serious burn. Fortunately, a successful claim may provide compensation for non-economic damages like:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish;
  • Emotional distress; and
  • Loss of consortium.
