Burn Injuries



Wisconsin Fire Accident Attorneys

Burn injuries are very painful and often require lengthy treatment and healing as layers of skin grow back. Even the treatment for these injuries is painful. Residual scarring is common after a serious burn injury, no matter how well the injury is treated. If the injury was caused by an act of carelessness, your first step should be to get good medical care. Your second step should be to contact an experienced personal injury attorney.

At the office of Gregory J. Egan of O’Flaherty Heim Egan & Birnbaum Ltd., we have more than 30 years of experience getting justice for burn victims. We are available to help people in La Crosse and the surrounding parts of western Wisconsin, as well as Winona and the surrounding parts of southeast Minnesota. Our lawyers have already recovered millions of dollars in compensation for people just like you.

What Caused the Burn Injury?

Our attorneys represent people who have suffered first, second- or third-degree burns due to any type of negligence, including:

In addition to burns caused by fires, we handle hot water burns, chemical burns, electrical burns, radiation burns, burns from explosions and more.

Victims Need Time to Heal

After a burn injury, the victim will need time to recover. This is what the victim should concentrate on, while we concentrate on the legal issues. We know that the victim is going to face an often painful recovery process, and the scarring may be psychological as well as physical. The victim should be compensated for all of these injuries.

Accepting the First Settlement Offer Is a Bad Idea

If you or a close family member has suffered a burn injury caused by an act of negligence, you may soon receive a settlement offer from the insurance company. Do not accept it. Even if it seems fair, there is no way that it can possibly take into account the full extent of the damage caused by the injury because it is too early to know. Our experience and our skills mean that we understand the steps to take to ensure full compensation.
