Boulder Burn Injury Lawyer
Bart Costello has fought on behalf of people with burn injuries since 1983. He has accumulated a large number of successful outcomes for burn patients.
Most burn injuries require immediate attention due to the possibility of infection and many other complications. There are a number of types of burns and severity ranging in 3 levels:
- 1st degree burns affecting one layer of skin
- 2nd degree burns affecting the next layer of skin
- 3rd degree burns that affect all layers of skin
Depending on the severity of the burn, different treatment may be required. Burns can affect people economically and cause emotional and psychological issues as well.
Common causes of the burn injuries and deaths include vehicles crashes, residential fires, flame burns, contact with electricity, scalds, and contact with hot objects. If you or someone you love suffered a substantial burn injury that led to disfigurement, intense and lasting pain, lost work time, and other types of disabilities, you should be able to hold liable parties accountable.
Liable parties need to pay you and your family for a variety of costs, including medical bills, missed work time, pain and suffering, loss of family affection, and possibly punitive damages.
