The burn recovery process can last years. Our experienced legal team will fight for the compensation you need, so you can focus on what’s most important-getting better.
After Your Burn Injury
Burn injuries are painful and can cause severe, long-term damage. If you have suffered a burn injury, your recovery should be the number one priority. Get the medical help you need immediately.
It’s also crucial to contact a fire and burn injury attorney as soon as possible. In a burn accident, gathering time-sensitive evidence is vital to your case’s success. Henson Fuerst has access to investigation resources, backed by years of experience in North Carolina personal injury law. We know how to handle fire and burn cases, and we can help protect your legal rights.
Investigating Your Injuries
Often, the only way to prove a burn injury case is for our North Carolina burn injury lawyers to gather important physical evidence from the fire scene before it’s removed or destroyed. It is critical to act swiftly because this evidence directly affects how a case is evaluated.
The North Carolina fire and burn injury lawyers at Henson Fuerst have four main goals when handling fire and burn injury cases:
- Preserve Critical Evidence
We issue Preservation of Evidence Letters to potential defendants to ensure they don’t destroy evidence before we can inspect and examine it.
- Document Injuries
Because burn injuries can change rapidly, Henson Fuerst will need to help document your injuries frequently with photos and video.
- Coordinate with Medical Providers
We’ll talk with your medical providers to gain insight into the treatment process, rehabilitation, and medical procedures being performed.
- Determine Cause
We consult fire accident reconstruction engineers to pinpoint the cause and origin of the fire, gather and analyze preserved evidence, test products and materials, and identify any responsible parties.
Preservation of Evidence Letters
After a serious burn injury, the clock starts ticking. Unfortunately, you can’t always trust insurance companies to preserve key evidence. They usually want to minimize a settlement payment by any means possible, and disposing of key evidence is their best weapon in winning the case.
With the help of professional fire accident reconstruction engineers, our North Carolina burn injury lawyers work quickly to ensure evidence is collected and kept safe.
