Virginia Burn Injury Lawyers

Alexandria firm works to obtain fair compensation for victims of severe burns

A thermal or chemical burn is capable of destroying skin, soft tissue, and cells. In some instances, the damage is so severe that full recovery is impossible. Along with the intense pain from the initial burn, victims could face months, or even years, of skin grafts and other treatments that cause additional suffering. Curcio Law, located in Alexandria, is a proven Virginia personal injury firm that pursues compensation for people injured in fires caused by car crashes, safety lapses, and product failures. We know how a burn injury can alter your life in an instant and work to hold the liable parties accountable.

Types of incidents that cause serious burn injuries

Our proven Northern Virginia personal injury attorneys advocate for burn injury victims in litigation stemming from all types of incidents, including:

  • Auto accidents — Car and truck collisions where the gas tank is broken or pierced can quickly turn into raging fires. Accidents involving tanker trucks and other vehicles hauling flammable substances are particularly dangerous.
  • Home and business fires — When using dangerous construction materials or failing to install working smoke alarms contributes to a serious fire, you might be able to make a premises liability claim against the property owner.
  • Explosions — In some instances, workers do not take the necessary precautions when setting off a planned explosion at a demolition or construction site. Other fires occur when gas tanks or receptacles holding incendiary substances explode.
  • Chemical exposure — Caustic chemicals can inflict harm on people in the same way that fire does. If improper handling of hazardous material leads to harmful chemical exposure, we will pursue legal relief from the parties liable for the leak.
  • Electrical failures — Poor wiring or sloppy electrical work can set off a devastating blaze.
  • Salon negligence – Chemicals used to lighten or dye hair can lead to severe and permanent damage, including bald spots if the salon/stylist does not take the proper precautions and applies the chemicals incorrectly.
  • Laser hair removal – Improper training, defective equipment, or careless application can lead to laser hair removal customers experiencing permanent burn injuries.

Virginia’s contributory negligence law means that a victim cannot recover damages if the defendant can show that they contributed in any way to their own injury. This is why it is especially important to retain a qualified Virginia attorney to protect your interests.

Damages available in a burn injury claim

For many victims, a severe burn is a catastrophic injury with permanent effects that change the course of their lives. Even if the medical danger passes, burn scars could prevent victims from participating in activities they previously enjoyed. Sometimes, a disfigurement might even force someone to leave the job they had before being burned. In addition to damages to reimburse plaintiffs for medical expenses and lost income, our firm also seeks to secure compensation for the pain and suffering that lingers long after the incident. In cases where our clients have suffered visible burn injuries, we ensure that our clients are also compensated for all associated humiliation and embarrassment of that visible burn injury. When appropriate, we consult with doctors, occupational therapists, and psychiatrists to gain a true perspective on how a burn injury impacts our clients. From there, we work tirelessly with defendants and their insurance companies to provide the payment that our clients deserve.
