Benjamin Roberts has represented numerous clients that have suffered burn injuries as a result of another person or corporation’s negligence. Typically, when we think of a burn injury, we think of someone being burned by fire. However, I have represented numerous clients that have been injured exposed to chemicals, fire, boiling water, and other hazardous substances. Unlike other injuries, burn injuries often leave a victim with intense pain and permanent disfigurement that will always remind the person burned of what they suffered.
Personally, I can relate to burn victims having suffered a severe burn in my early 20s. Going to the hospital, the wound care, getting follow up debridements and injections to reduce scarring, was an extremely experience I endured over a year. As the pain subsided, there was still a long period of having to wear compression sleeves and use other remedies to keep my scars from getting worse. To this day, the scars remain. However, I am fortunate in that my scars are not readily visible and do not continue to require care.
Unfortunately, I have represented individuals and families that have been severely burned and the disfigurement they suffered is readily visible. This disfigurement not only affects someone physically, but it also takes a significant toll emotionally. Healing from a significant burn injury may not only require medical treatment, it may also require psychological therapy as well. Simply, individuals burned as a result of another’s negligence will have a long road od recovery.
