HAVE YOU SUFFERED A SEVERE BURN INJURY? CALL THE DARWISH LAW FIRM TODAY TO GET COMPENSATION FOR YOUR INJURY!
According to the CDC, each year in the United States, 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention. Approximately 50,000 of these require hospitalization; 20,000 have major burns involving at least 25 percent of their total body surface, and approximately 4,500 of these people die.
If you, a friend, or a family member has suffered from a severe burn injury, contact a Los Angeles burn attorney who can trust. Burn injuries can be fatal and burn survivors are frequently left with physical and emotional scarring. Severe burns to our skin can cause major damage affecting our hydration, body temperature regulation, keeping diseases and germs out, and other bodily functions. Severe burns can also permanently destroy hair follicles, sweat glands, and skin elasticity.
In addition to physical damage, severe burns can cause serious emotional consequences. Burns can cause unsightly scars which can affect the emotional state of mind of burn victims. For many burn victims, it is difficult to live a normal life and our burn injury attorney can help determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injury.
