If you or someone you know is the victim of a burn injury caused by someone else’s negligence, our personal injury lawyers may be able to help.

Our firm will aggressively represent injured clients so that they may receive maximum compensation.
Florida Burn Injury Law
When a burn injury is suffered at work, the employee may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation is insurance which provides employees who were injured on the job with medical benefits and replacement of lost wages. In exchange for these benefits, the employees forfeit their right to sue their employer. Because insurance companies may try to deny benefits entirely, workers who have suffered a burn injury on the job should speak with an attorney immediately to discuss their legal rights and options.
Workers’ compensation benefits do not offer payment for pain and suffering, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, or disfigurement. However, these damages may still be available for burn injury victims who pursue third-party claims. In these cases, the worker will file a suit against a third party, such as a subcontractor or product manufacturer, to seek damages which may supplement their workers’ compensation benefits. Our Florida burn injury lawyers handle both workers’ compensation and third-party claims stemming from a number of accidents including factory fires, chemical plant explosions, construction site accidents and chemical burns.
