Work-Related Chemical And Burn Injuries

Getting Full Workers' Compensation Benefits For Your Losses

Chemical burns, electrical burns, burns from fires and all types of hot surfaces and tools can cause lifelong impairments, disfigurement and scars that might never completely heal. If you or a family member has been injured in any type of work-related accident, you should seek professional, experienced legal counsel immediately after getting medical attention.

Even if a worker is at fault for the cause of the burn, he or she is still entitled to workers' compensation benefits that cover medical expenses and lost wages. Getting the full payments you deserve now and in the long term is not a guarantee. Your employer and its insurance company, which is ultimately responsible for your benefits, will likely try to limit the payments you receive. Was your claim denied? We can help you appeal.

If you want to maximize your benefits and protect your future income, call us today at 303-952-0703 to schedule a free initial consultation with an attorney. We have recovered tens of millions for our clients.

What You Should Do In A Burn Injury Case

See your preferred doctor. If you need specialized attention, we can help you find a specialist. You have the right to be treated by a doctor of your choosing regardless of what the insurance adjuster tells you.

Report your injury right away. The longer you wait, the less evidence you have to prove your electrical injury, chemical injury, explosion injury or other type of burn was job-related.

Speak with a lawyer about maximizing your benefits. A number of factors determine the benefit payments for work-related chemical and burn injuries. Scars and disfigurement can increase the amount of future payments. Skin grafting, nerve damage, rehabilitation and disabilities can greatly increase your medical costs and abilities to earn the wages you earned prior to injury. An old burn injury could even be the source of cancer. You might even be able to file a lawsuit against a third party if there is evidence of third-party responsibility.
