I have represented many, many burn victims that have been burned through the negligence of some third party, whether it's a pipeline company, whether it's a butane manufacturer or supplier that is not properly odorized their product. It may have been someone that was involved in a motor vehicle wreck and there was a fire afterwards. There is nothing in the world more painful than a burn injury. The months and months of rehab, the scar tissue that's left, the residual effects from it, the lack of sweating, the pore damage, the disfigurement, all make for a devastating injury, not just incredibly painful at the time, but a kind of sequence that stays with you for the balance of your life. There may be wear-being of the hands, the feet, the fingers. There is the constant pain that goes along with it. There's the lack of being able to perspire like one normally did before. The lack of being able to stay in the sun which will inhibit and keep most people from working or many people from working. It may come from a car wreck. It may come from a pipeline explosion. It may come from a butane tank that has exploded. It may come from an unodorized gas. It may come from an unodorized butane, but they are devastating injuries. It's an injury that a person never gets over completely. I have handled many, many burn cases in my career. If you're burned, call me. I can help you.
