Will the Level of My Burn Injury Affect the Compensation I Receive in My Truck Accident Injury Claim?
All burn injuries that occur in collisions deserve compensation. However, the type of burn a person suffers will affect how much a victim can recover. For example, a person who suffers a second degree burn might be able to return to work within a couple of months, whereas a person who suffers a third degree burn might need multiple surgeries and several months or years off of work.
Sometimes, people who suffer burns in a crash aren’t able to return to work or hold the same type of job as they did prior to a car fire. As a result, that person’s financial recovery will be different than someone who can return to work and make a living. There are many factors that go into the amount of compensation a burn injury victim can recover in a truck accident injury claim, such as:
- Hospital and surgical bills
- Doctor’s visits and medical care
- Rehabilitation costs
- Prescription expenses
- Counseling fees
- Lost income
- Future lost wages and benefits
- Future medical care
Because these aforementioned factors do play a part in how much a burn injury victim will recover, it is important that an experienced personal injury lawyer in South Florida review your case to make sure you receive the maximum compensation possible in your case.
