Can you sue for a burn?

Yes, you can sue for a burn. A burn can cause severe pain and permanent disfigurement. These injuries are actionable under the law. You can sue for a burn if the burn occurs because of the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else. You can seek to hold the other person accountable if they are responsible for your burn injuries. A claim may include monetary damages as well as compensation for physical pain and emotional suffering.

Burn compensation amounts

Burn compensation amounts vary based on the severity of the damage and the cost of treatment. Generally, burns are slow to heal and very painful. Victims often have permanent scars. Because burn injuries are so serious, burn compensation amounts tend to be high compared to other types of negligence claims. Burn compensation includes your financial losses and pain and suffering. The prolonged suffering associated with burns often results in high compensation amounts for burn injuries. Ultimately, burn compensation amounts for each case depend on the individual circumstances present in the case and what the victim deserves.

How much is my burn claim worth?

Your burn claim is worth the cost of your medical treatment, lost income and other financial expenses plus an additional payment based on the severity of your injuries to account for pain and suffering. The value of a case begins with determining the victim's financial losses. Financial expenses like the cost of medical treatment are included as well as compensation for ways that the victim would have made money if it weren't for the accident.

From there, to calculate the value of your case, you add an additional amount for pain and suffering. The pain and suffering portion of a burn case is based on the amount of monetary damages applied to a multiplier. In the case of a burn victim, the multiplier is quite high because a burn is a complex injury. If the case is legally sound, the value may be higher than average. If there are legal issues that throw the case into doubt, or questions of comparative negligence, these factors may decrease the value of the case.
