It was a typical day for Jane, a mother of two living in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. She was cooking dinner for her family when suddenly, her kitchen caught on fire. In a panic, she tried to put out the flames but ended up sustaining serious burns on her arms and face. As if the physical pain wasn’t enough, Jane also had to deal with the medical bills and lost wages due to her inability to work. That’s when she decided to seek the help of a burn injury attorney.

Unfortunately, accidents like Jane’s are not uncommon. According to the American Burn Association, there were an estimated 486,000 burn injuries that required medical treatment in the United States in 2019. These injuries can range from minor burns to more severe ones that require extensive medical treatment and can result in permanent scarring and disfigurement.

The Role of a Burn Injury Attorney

A burn injury attorney, also known as a personal injury lawyer, specializes in representing individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of others. In cases like Jane’s, a burn injury attorney can help victims seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Hicks & Motto, a reputable law firm in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, our team of experienced burn injury attorneys understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that a burn injury can have on an individual and their family. We work tirelessly to help our clients get the justice and compensation they deserve.

The Importance of Hiring a Burn Injury Attorney

Many individuals who have suffered burn injuries may hesitate to hire a burn injury attorney due to fears of expensive legal fees. However, not seeking legal representation can result in a much greater financial burden in the long run. Here’s why hiring a burn injury attorney is crucial:

1. Legal Expertise and Knowledge

Burn injury cases can be complex, and navigating the legal system without proper knowledge and expertise can be challenging. A burn injury attorney has the necessary skills and experience to handle your case effectively. We can also gather evidence, interview witnesses, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.

2. Maximize Compensation

Insurance companies often try to settle burn injury cases for the lowest possible amount. A burn injury attorney can assess the full extent of your injuries and calculate the compensation you deserve. We can also negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.

3. Focus on Recovery

Dealing with a burn injury can be physically and emotionally draining. By hiring a burn injury attorney, you can focus on your recovery while we handle the legal aspects of your case. This can also help alleviate stress and allow you to fully heal from your injuries.
