Burn Injury Attorneys in Fairfax, Manassas, Centreville and Front Royal, VA
Firm represents victims of severe harm from fires and chemical exposure
Burns can inflict severe harm on a victim almost instantaneously and it takes an experienced lawyer to investigate who was responsible and take action to secure payment from the liable parties. At Pikrallidas & Probasco, we have locations in Fairfax, Manassas, Centreville and Front Royal where we battle for justice on behalf of individuals dealing with the effects of fires caused by auto accidents and unsafe premises. Throughout northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., we have earned a reputation as a firm that knows how to maximize the compensation that burn victims receive from defendants.
Incidents that cause serious burns
There are many potential causes of serious burn injuries, such as:
- Vehicle collisions — Dangerous fires frequently erupt when a car or truck gets in a crash, particularly if the flame reaches the gas tank. Commercial vehicles carrying flammable materials or caustic chemical substances pose an even greater threat.
- Unsafe premises — The lack of a working smoke alarm in a home or business can be deadly, and many locations where large amounts of people gather are required to have sprinklers. In situations where property owners’ carelessness contributes to burn injuries, our firm fights to establish defendants’ liability.
Since 1992, our firm has delivered the highest levels of representation and service to personal injury and wrongful death plaintiffs in the northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. area. We are ready to take on your burn injury claim and will make every legal effort to get the money you need to pay your healthcare expenses and reimburse your lost wages.
Effects of burn injuries
Like other catastrophic injuries, severe burns often inflict harm that cannot be undone. Even if some of the damage can be alleviated through skin grafts or other measures, the recovery process is often long and painful. Third-degree burns are the most serious and not only affect the skin and the dermal region below it, but also can threaten bones, muscles and tendons. Our aggressive personal injury lawyers team with experts such as doctors and occupational therapists to construct a detailed picture of what a burn victim’s life will be like in the near and distant future. From there, we press to collect compensation that fairly addresses the physical and emotional effects of their injury.
Even after the urgent symptoms have subsided, a burn injury victim likely will have to spend the rest of their life with some sort of scarring or disfigurement. Permanently damaged skin, especially on victim’s face, can make it difficult to make friends or get a job. When our lawyers represent people with burn scars, we prepare a detailed argument on how their disfigurement has lessened the quality of their life.
