An electrical burn is more serious than a burn from a fire, because the electric current heats the body from the inside out. Depending on the amount of injury, an amputation may be necessary. Any serious burn injury causes great pain, disfigurement and permanent disability.
Because the damage to the body is so large, valuation of the claim requires input from the trauma physician and rehabilitation physician. Also, the therapists will have specific information about the impact of the injury. Therapists often spend more time with the patient than the treating physicians. Therapists are helpful people who see the devastating effect on their patients. A therapist is often a powerful witness to explain the consequences of injuries to the jury.
If you or your family member has been injured, you can ask a question.
