PHILADELPHIA BURN INJURY LAWYERSPROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS
Pain and Suffering Awarded for Burn Injury:Serious burn injuries involve agonizing suffering. Burn injuries affect the very nerves and organ -- the skin or epidermis -- that sends pain signals to the brain. This makes it literally and scientifically true that there can be no greater pain and suffering than the pain and suffering of a burn injury victim.
But it must also always be remembered that the pain and suffering of the burn injury victim is not limited to the agony of the physical pain and suffering.
Often, burn injuries are disfiguring. The deeply regrettable truth is that scarring from burn injuries can range from the unsightly to the grotesque. Burn injury victims must live with the pain and suffering caused by this every day. Some persons who have suffered facial burns find it hard to function in society or even to appear in public. The reactions of passersby are simply too painful. This too is a form of pain and suffering which must appropriately be fully recognized when pain and suffering damages are awarded for burn injury victims.
Burn injuries can dramatically interfere with the ability of the victim to ever again earn a living. The recovery process alone often precludes return to employment, so that burn injuries may result in long term disability from the workforce.
The psychological wounds of suffering a burn injury also frequently exceed even the frustration and humiliation of dealing with the reactions of others. Many burn victims have a difficult time forcing the memory of the burn event from their minds. The trauma lingers in the psyche just as the physical pain may linger -- and the two often feed upon each other.
Before accepting any settlement in a burn injury case, sufferers must take every possible step to be certain that the involved insurance companies, liable parties, or others who may control settlement purse strings (even, in fact, juries in litigated cases), fully and truly understand the depths of pain and suffering these injuries can cause.
