Royal Palm Beach Burn Injury Lawyers

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious burn injury, the road to recovery may be long and arduous. While the worst of the trauma might heal in a matter of months, it could take years to undergo the cosmetic surgeries needed to achieve optimal recovery.

Because of the pain and emotional distress associated with burn injuries, these claims often result in substantial personal injury settlements. Burns might appear superficial, but they can be just as catastrophic as spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries. And unlike internal injuries, burns are likely to cause scarring and disfigurement, which can have a profound effect on the victim's quality of life.

If you sustained serious burns through the fault of another person, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. To determine if you have grounds for a claim, contact Donaldson & Weston.

How Long Will My Case Take to Resolve?

The costs associated with treating serious burns can add up fast, so it is only natural for claimants to want to reach a settlement as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, there is no set timeline for resolving such claims; the proceedings could take anywhere from a few months to over a year.

At the end of the day, dozens of factors could influence the total duration of a burn injury case including:

  • The severity of your injuries and how long it will take to reach maximum medical improvement;

  • The strength of any evidence of liability;

  • The strength of any evidence of damages;

  • Whether the insurance company is willing to cooperate;

  • Whether your case goes to court;

  • Whether multiple parties were at fault for the accident; and

  • Whether liability is disputed.

If your financial security is in jeopardy due to healthcare expenses and other damages, it is important that you seek legal counsel right away.
