Racine and Kenosha County Burn Victim Lawyer
In our long experience of personal injury litigation on behalf of seriously injured persons and their families, there is no question that the most painful injuries we've encountered relate to serious burns. If you or a loved one has suffered burns caused by the negligent conduct of another, contact the Milwaukee burn trauma liability attorneys at Domnitz & Skemp.
Cases involving serious burns require careful handling by civil trial attorneys for at least two reasons. First, because a severe burn victim will often require a sequence of surgeries involving skin grafts, transplants, and intensive hospital care over many months or years, it is impossible to know early in the case just what the extent of the medical treatment costs will be. Inexperienced attorneys or poorly advised victims will be tempted to accept what seem to be very substantial settlement offers early in the litigation, only to find that the settlement is inadequate to meet the total costs of necessary treatment over an extended period.
Next, the pain and suffering involved in burn cases is truly impossible to imagine. Handling this aspect of the case presents a special problem for plaintiff's counsel: by overstating the demand for damages, the plaintiff risks antagonizing the judge, losing credibility with the jury, and forcing the defendant into a posture where protracted litigation is an absolute necessity. But by understating the pain and suffering damages, the plaintiff is badly served as well. He or she will not receive the full compensation necessary to make a comfortable life possible after the injury.
The Wisconsin burn and electric shock injury lawyers of Domnitz & Skemp have the experience and trial skills to make sure that the most effective and persuasive presentation possible on every aspect of your claim is made to both the defendant's insurance company and the jury.
