Burns

Advocates For Victims Of Serious Burn Injuries

Burn injuries have life-changing consequences. With medical care, cosmetic surgery and psychological counseling, the victim can recover, but those services are costly. Where can burn victims turn for help?

It is important to hire a lawyer quickly after a burn injury occurs to thoroughly document the burn recovery process, which can be a long and painful journey to recovery resulting in permanent scarring and disfigurement.

Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., has a team of investigators and videographers to document a “day-in-the-life” of a burn victim’s rehabilitation, which is often admissible at trial to show the jury what the victim went through including painful tissue debridement and multiple skin-graft surgeries. In addition, we have the financial resources to get burn victims evaluated by plastic surgeons to determine the cost of future medical treatment of disfiguring scars. Often, plastic surgery specialists are not covered by health insurance and a lawyer can help a client prove the cosmetic surgery costs to which he or she might be entitled to recover.

Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., is a law firm with a mission: helping accident victims rebuild their lives. We work tirelessly to help our clients get the medical care and services they need to recover, as well as compensation for their financial losses.

Do You Need Plastic Surgery Because Of Another’s Negligence?

Severe burns and scalds are not only extremely painful, but they can also lead to extensive scarring and disfigurement. Reducing the effects of such significant injuries can require multiple reconstructive surgeries and a very expensive course of treatment.

Unfortunately, many insurance policies do not cover plastic surgery, so obtaining the money you need from a personal injury settlement or award can be vital.

At the Florida law firm of Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., we help personal injury victims in Alachua County, Marion County and throughout the surrounding areas to recover full and fair compensation. If you or a loved one was burned, scarred or disfigured because of a careless driver, a dangerous dog or any other negligence, we are here to fight for you.

Our lawyers have extensive experience handling personal injury cases, including ones that involve:

  • Burns or windshield scars from motor vehicle accidents
  • Abrasions from defective air bags
  • Road rash from motorcycle crashes
  • Scalds from dangerous chemicals
  • Scars from dog bites
