Many injury victims wonder if they can file a burn injury claim without the assistance of an attorney. It is often in the best interests of the victim to seek legal help from a passionate, dedicated attorney who understands the law and how insurance companies work.

Should I File a Burn Injury Claim Without a Lawyer?
We strongly recommend you do not file a burn injury claim without an attorney. The insurer does not have your best interests in mind; they are more worried about their bottom line than your future.
Even if the insurance company comes to you right away with a settlement offer, you may recover more compensation by working with an attorney who is dedicated to protecting your rights.
Here are a few reasons why you should not file a burn injury claim without legal representation:
- The insurance company may undervalue your claim, paying you less than you deserve.
- If you have not completed your medical care, you may have additional costs you are unaware of at the current time.
- You have suffered noneconomic losses, which are difficult to value on your own. These may include mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and even permanent physical disfigurement.
- You should be focused on healing, not spending hours gathering medical reports, police reports, accident forms, and other evidence.
- A personal injury attorney understands how to navigate the legal process and juggle all the deadlines and legal requirements your case may face.
- You may recover considerably more compensation by working with a legal team, even after legal fees are paid.
Choosing to file your burn injury claim without the help of a dedicated personal injury firm may result in a much lower final claim amount. You deserve to recover all you have lost, and our firm can help ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to.
The Benefits of Hiring a Dedicated Burn Injury Lawyer
At Sevenish Law Firm, P.C., personal injury is all we do and all we have ever done. This means we have a better understanding of the law and the emotional impact accidents can have on victims. We are prepared to fight fiercely for your rights.
Just like you would not go to a primary care physician for a brain injury, you should not seek legal counsel for a personal injury claim from a lawyer who does not focus on personal injury cases.
Personal injury cases face many loopholes and legal requirements, such as Medicare, workers’ compensation laws, and varying statutes of limitations. Many factors must be addressed before a settlement is reached, and a personal injury lawyer is uniquely equipped to handle these challenges.
Hiring a less specialized or discounted firm may cost you money in your final settlement, as these firms may be unable to recover the same level of compensation.
Damages You Might Recover in Your Burn Injury Claim
Burn accidents can result in thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. You may be facing permeant disfigurement, an inability to work, and emotional trauma.
We work hard to recover a realistic settlement that accounts for all the ways you have suffered. Depending on the details of your burn accident case, you may recover the following types of damages:
- Doctor’s visits
- Hospitalization costs
- Medical treatments
- Pain management
- Long term therapies
- Long term nursing care
- Medical devices
- Mobility equipment
- Lost wages
- The loss of future income
- Pain and suffering
- Personal property damage
If you sustained a burn injury, your life may be in turmoil, and you may be facing excruciating physical pain. You want a legal team who is passionate about the law and dedicated to getting you your life back. We do not recommend trying to file a burn injury claim without an attorney.
