Burn injuries in the workplace can result from hot oil or grease, fires as well as chemical exposure or friction. When a burn injury occurs on the job, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These cases can become quite complex and may require an attorney's help to receive all of the compensation you deserve.
At Spooner & Perkins, P.C.
, our firm has been protecting the rights of injured workers for more than 55 years. If you are living with burn injuries suffered on the job, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case, as well as resources for injured workers. Our Kansas City burn injury lawyers represent victims throughout the metro as well as rural Missouri and Kansas.
Few injuries are as painful as a burn injury. Depending on the severity, you may need skin grafts and other follow-up care that could extend years into the future to prevent infection. Our lawyers assist you in obtaining the best medical care, therapy and plastic surgery (if necessary) to recover as fully as possible from your burn injury. We will also seek to maximize your settlement from workers' compensation for permanent partial disability resulting from the burn injury. If the burns occurred to your hands, arms, neck or face, you are also entitled to additional compensation if permanent scarring or "disfigurement" results.
Our lawyers will help you navigate the process of applying for workers' compensation benefits, from the filing of your initial request for benefits through any necessary appeals. If a third party (someone other than your employer) is responsible for your burn injury, we will also investigate the possibility of a third party action against the negligent third party that would include compensation for pain and suffering.
