An Phoenix accident that causes a severe burn injury can change your life. In addition to dealing with the terrible pain and disfigurement caused by the burn injury, burn victims may also experience post-traumatic stress, limited range of motion and permanent physical and emotional scarring. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious burn injury in Phoenix, you can turn to the Phoenix burn injury lawyers at Knapp & Roberts for experience, compassion, and guidance. A Phoenix burn injury attorney at Knapp & Roberts is here to listen, understand what you are going through, and tell the story of what happened and how it has affected your life.

At Knapp & Roberts, in Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona, we comprehend the long-term physical and emotional effects of burn injuries. Even after skin grafts and reconstructive plastic surgery, burn victims may have permanent disfigurement and chronic pain caused by the extent of nerve damage.

Common Causes of Phoenix Burn Injuries

The most common causes of burns come from accidental fires – house fires, electrocutions, car fires, etc. Even if you don’t believe it was anyones fault, you may still be able to prove a third party is liable for your burn injuries. At Knapp & Roberts, we represent burn injury victims who have been injured from:

  • Apartment or house fires
  • Natural or propane gas explosions
  • Chemical exposure
  • Severe electrical shock
  • Scalding
  • Car fires

Types of Burn Injuries That Affect Phoenix Victims

Burn injuries are classified as first, second, third, and fourth degree burns. A first degree burn is the least severe and fourth degree is much more severe and debilitating.

  • First Degree. Often characterized by red skin and sensitivity to touch, these burns are topical and fail to penetrate the skins surface. An example of a first degree burn is a sunburn.
  • Second Degree. These are characterized by red skin, swelling, blisters and intense pain, and often affect the sweat glands and/or hair follicles. Second degree burns that are left untreated may progress to third degree burns.
  • Third Degree. Characterized by charred and translucent skin, the affected areas are usually numb but may have some pain from second degree burns in the same area. Because tissue is destroyed, these burns usually take longer to heal and can cause significant scarring.
  • Fourth Degree. This type of burn injuries affects muscles, tendons, ligaments and occasionally bone. These burns are typically life-threatening and often result in an amputation.

Compensation for Your Burn Injury

Burn injuries and other fire injuries require specialized medical treatment that can last months. Additionally, there are future medical costs for rehabilitative burn treatment — such as physical therapy to restore function and range of motion in the affected area. Our Phoenix burn injury attorneys understand the significance of obtaining full compensation in order to alleviate these costs and other expenses associated with burn injuries. The Phoenix injury lawyers at Knapp & Roberts will also take care to see that you are compensated for:

  • Cost of past and future medical treatment
  • Future rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages during recovery
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional stress and anguish
  • Counseling
  • Other long-term needs
