Pre-Settlement Funding: Burn Injury Lawsuit
Burn injuries are among the most devastating injuries a person can encounter. They’re extremely painful, the recovery time is extensive, and they often leave behind scars if not outright disfigurement. Burn injuries can leave behind long-lasting physical and psychological effects making it difficult for a victim to carry on a normal life – it’s not uncommon for a victim to have to endure years of therapy. A lawsuit could take years to settle and the insurance, even if they do cover it, could take ages.

According to data from the American Burn Association, over 450,000 people are seen in emergency rooms, clinics, and physician’s offices every year for burn injury treatment. So where do these injuries come from?
Common causes for burn injuries are:
- Faulty electrical wiring
- Defective products (like smoke detectors and portable heaters)
- Defective automobiles
- Workplace fires
- Gas explosions
- Chemical burns
- Inhalation Injury
- Scald Burn / Injury
Common injuries are blisters, peeling skin, scarred skin, charred skin, damaged lungs, and more. Regardless of the injury, the treatments are often expensive and time-consuming. The common treatments for burn injuries, depending on the severity of the injury, are amputation, extensive skin grafting, rehabilitation (physically, emotionally) and even plastic surgery and reconstruction.
Burn injuries often put victims out of commission for an extended period of time if not the rest of the victim’s life. Most are no longer able to work or even carry out daily tasks. Meanwhile, life goes on and expenses begin piling up and your case is taking longer than you expected. You need pre-settlement funding.
