Common Causes of Burn Injuries
Skin burns can happen in a number of ways. Preszler Injury Lawyers has helped Guelph residents who suffered severe skin burns in the following situations and more:
If your burn occurred in a residential fire, we will help you figure out who was responsible for the fire and pursue them for compensation. That goes for fires that have intentional as well as accidental causes.
If you were injured in a fire that occurred in a commercial or business setting, we will investigate and determine who might be liable for your injuries.
We have helped many burn victims who suffered injuries while cooking. These injuries often occur because of damaged or defective appliances, and we can go after the manufacturer for damages.
Not all burns result from fires. Many chemicals can burn skin. In some cases, another party will be liable for your chemical burn. We will identify that party and go after them for damages.
No matter how your burn occurred, the lasting results can be very damaging, not just physically but emotionally and psychologically, as well. You deserve compensation for your medical bills, time away from work, and reduced earning capacity, as well as for the noneconomic damages you have suffered, such as pain and suffering.
Preszler Injury Lawyers defends burn injury victims, pursuing the responsible party for compensation and, if necessary, taking on their insurance company and seeing to it that our clients are compensated fairly. A skin burns potentially leading to permanent disfigurement lawyer serving Guelph wants to work for you, and we will start by offering a free, no-obligation consultation.

HOW A GUELPH PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER MAY BE ABLE TO HELP
Preszler Injury Lawyers believe in pursuing compensation for our clients. Depending on how your injury occurred and who was responsible, you may be eligible for much more than the money it takes to cover your out-of-pocket costs and lost wages. You might be able to recover damages for the physical, emotional, and psychological pain you have and may continue to suffer because of your injury.
We may be able to help you recover a settlement or award that includes compensation for the following and more:
Current and Future Medical Bills
If someone else was responsible for a skin burn injury, we will go after them for the cost of your current and future medical bills. This includes any hospital stays, doctor visits, physical therapy, rehabilitation, surgeries, psychologist or psychiatrist appointments, prescription medications, and more.
If you have missed work because of your skin burn injury, we will try to recover the value of your lost wages from the responsible party and their insurance company.
Reduced Earning Capacity
In the event of a severe, disfiguring burn, your earning capacity might be diminished on a long-term basis. This is especially true if you had a front-facing job that involved working with the public, such as marketing or outside sales. We can help you recover compensation to cover the difference between what you used to be able to earn and what you can earn now.
Pain and Suffering
We pursue compensation to pay you for the physical, emotional, and psychological distress your skin burn injury has caused.
