Burn Injury Attorneys in Virginia

Helping Burn Survivors in Virginia Find Justice

Major burn survivors know recovery is a lifelong process and journey. Major burns contribute to debilitating  pain, weakness, and scarring. Even after scar revision surgeries are complete, many survivors are unable to work or participate in the activities they once loved. For these reasons, burn injuries have a tremendous psychological impact and are associated with an increased risk of suicidal ideation. 

If you or a family member suffered a major burn injury it is important to care for your mind and your body as your work towards recovery. When you are ready to seek legal help, hiring experienced personal injury lawyers who have represented clients with significant burn injuries should be a priority.  

Innocent people shouldn’t pay for the reckless mistakes of others. That’s why we offer free, confidential case evaluations for burn injury survivors in Virginia. Call 855-212-8200 to get started today.

Compensation in Virginia Burn Injury Cases

The amount of compensation an individual can recover following a burn injury in Virginia varies. Recoveries are determined using numerous factors. 

More specifically, your total compensation will be affected by:

  • Severity of the burn
  • Location of the burn
  • Type of burn 
  • Your age
  • Amount of medical care required to treat the burn
  • Permanency of the scarring
  • Whether the injuries will prevent you from doing something you enjoyed

When you hire Breit Biniazan, our burn injury attorneys in Virginia can provide you with an estimated compensation amount.

Types of Burn Injuries

Burns are classified based on how deeply they penetrate the skin’s surface. The severity of a client’s burn is predictive of the final settlement amount. Typically, the more severe the burns, the larger the settlement. 

The three main classifications of burns are:

  • First-degree: First-degree burns are considered superficial burns because they only affect the outer layer of skin (epidermis). Though the burn site might be red and sore (similar to a sunburn), long-term damage is rare. 
  • Second-degree: Second-degree burns affect the epidermis as well as the lower layer of skin (dermis). These burns are very painful and can take weeks to heal. Infection may also occur. 
  • Third-degree: The most severe type, third-degree burns destroy the skin and can damage underlying tissue like muscle and bone. Third-degree burns require intensive medical intervention.

What Causes Burn Injuries?

It’s a common misconception that burns are only caused by fire. But debilitating burn injuries can also be caused by electrical, chemical, and electromagnetic energy.

For example, burn injuries may result from:

If a third party is partially or wholly responsible for your burn injury, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, missed paychecks, emotional trauma, and more.
