The cost of the treatments required to fully recover from severe burn injuries is almost always a major financial issue for patients. The average cost associated with medical bills for someone who sustained moderate injuries in a fire is somewhere around $200,000 or more.
Additionally, this total fails to take into consideration the numerous other financial burdens burn victims may be faced with, including lost wages, reduced earning capacity, multiple reconstructive surgeries for physical scarring, disfigurement, embarrassment, emotional turmoil, pain, suffering, loss of present and future earning capacity, loss of life enjoyment, medical bills, and the various support services designed to help them cope with emotional scarring caused by the event.
Obtaining compensation for these considerable expenses, along with many other possible intangible losses, does not happen automatically, and, trusting an insurance company to fairly compensate you for your damages will most likely not result in a favorable outcome for you and your family members.
