Philadelphia On-the-Job / Workplace Burn Injury Lawyer
If you or anyone you know has suffered the trauma from a serious burn injury, call the Burn Injury Lawyers of Cardamone Law for immediate help. If the burns happened from a work-related accident, you will be entitled to Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation, potentially wage loss, medical benefits, and something caled Specific Loss benefits- if the burns result in scars that are on the head, face, or neck, are unsightyly, permanent, and not usually incident to the type of employment. The exerienced Pennsylvania Workers Comp Burn Injury Lawyers of Cardamone Law have handled burn cases and we know how they affect the lives of the victims and their loved ones.
Pennsylvania Work Comp And/Or Third Party Case May Be Available
If the burns didn’t occur at work, you may have a personal injury case available, depending on how the accident occurred and whether an entity was negligent in causing the accident. If the burns happened at work, you may have two cases- a Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation case, and a Third Party case- that is, a case against an entity other than the employer, who may have been responsible for the injuries/accident. In Third Party cases, there are pain and suffering damages available, whereas in Pennsylvania there aren’t. But remember, again, if the burns were from a work injury, and of the head, face, or neck, we can pursue the Specific Loss benefits for you which will give you a certain amount of additional weeks of compensation- even if the injury doesn’t stop you from working.
Burn Injuries and Psychological Effects
We have a CRNP on staff, and she is a wound care expert. We will make sure you’re getting the best care possible. Burns accidents often result in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and we can pursue this potentially as a Work Injury for you if the accident occurred while in the course and scope of your employment. Similarly, the accident can cause anxiety and/or depression which is another avenue to pursue in a Pennsylvania Work Comp case. Or, if a Third Party personal injury case, then those are additonal damages for a jury to consider.
