The Law Offices of Michael J. Brennan is a Chicago based burn injury law firm that helps the victims of fires and other burn injuries in their time of need.
Did you suffer a burn injury after a car accident caused a fire? Perhaps you’re a construction worker in any of the countless Chicago work sites and an electrical issue or explosion resulted in severe burns. No matter the cause, when someone suffers a burn injury, it can be a horrible experience.
The team at the Law Offices of Michael J. Brennan will work with top experts to fully investigate how your accident happened to determine if anyone was negligent and can be held legally responsible for your burn injury.
The Illinois Fire and Safety Alliance an organization dedicated to fire safety, burn prevention, and supporting burn survivors has put together a burn injury fact sheet concerning the number of burns that occur each year.
Many new Chicago burn injury accidents are preventable because they happen due to negligence on behalf of a vehicle owner or operator, a building owner or management, or other responsible party. Illinois law states that a reasonable party must use ordinary care in maintaining a vehicle or property so as to not result in a fire or burn injury. Too often an owner may not act reasonably and display ordinary care in maintaining their Illinois property for fire prevention thus leading to a fire and burn injury.
After a burn injury it can take up to 1-2 years for the injury and scar to stabilize. Surgery may be required including plastic surgery to improve the mobility of the area injured by the scar and improve the scar’s appearance.
