Burn Injury Treatment
At the law firm of Coppola & Melonakis, we help burn injury victims get the treatment they need. Our goal is to handle all legal matters effectively so that you can focus on the most important thing — your recovery.
By taking successful legal action, we may be able to help you get compensation for your medical bills and for the costs of continuing medical care after a burn injury. We may also be able to recommend doctors who will help treat you and defer payment until after you achieve a favorable settlement or jury verdict.
Burn injury treatment is highly involved. Because burns often require acute care and take a long time to heal, the cost of proper treatment can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.
We help our clients get the compensation they deserve to help pay for many different procedures and hospital stays:
- Long-term hospitalization
- Skin grafts
- Reconstructive surgery
- At-home medical care
- Physical therapy
Severity of Burn Injuries
The type of burn injury treatment patients receive often depends on the seriousness of their burns. Burns fall into one of four categories. First-degree burns are the most mild, while fourth-degree burns are the most severe. If a patient experiences severe burns in certain locations, he or she may be forced to undergo amputations, loss of sensation and reduced mobility.
If you have been burned in a fire, explosion or by a chemical spill, talking to a lawyer is a good idea. It may be possible to take legal action. During a free initial consultation with our burn injury law firm, you just might find that you have more options than you initially thought.
We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis. We don’t charge attorney fees unless we obtain monetary compensation for you.
