The World Health Organization (WHO) notes that most burn injuries happen in the workplace or at home. Contact with searing hot liquid, steam, and flames can cause severe burns.

You Must File Your Lawsuit Within Ohio’s Statutory Deadline
Whether you suffered harm in a collision or another incident, you must file your lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations. You generally have:
- Two years to file your injury lawsuit, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10
- Two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02
It’s crucial to file within the mandated deadline. By failing to file on time, you risk having your case dismissed in court. What’s worse, the other party would never be held financially accountable for their actions.

Our Lawyers Serving Marysville, Ohio Will Seek These Losses
Burns notes that the cost of treating serious burns ranges from about $269,000 to $361,000. These figures only refer to medical care. Missing work and needing therapy may only add to your financial burdens.
We don’t want you to worry about paying for medical care and making up missed time from work. Instead, we want you to focus on feeling better and spending time with your loved ones. We will seek compensation for your:
Past, Present, and Future Medical Bills
Burns are more than surface-level injuries; they can also lead to infections, which can cause sepsis, a life-threatening condition. As such, compensation for your healthcare expenses may include:
- Skin grafts
- Cosmetic surgery
- Medications, ointments, and lotions
- Tetanus shots
- Doctors’ visits
- Breathing assistance devices (like an oxygen tank)
- Assistive devices, including wheelchairs and crutches
Lost Income and Loss of Future Earning Capacity
Whether you work freelance or a nine-to-five job, your compensation can account for lost wages, bonuses, and tips. If your burn injuries permanently affect your earning power, we can seek financial recovery for that loss as well.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering accounts for your emotional and physical hardships. We will calculate this expense based on your burns’ severity, healthcare expenses, and quality of life.
Scarring and Disfigurement
Healthline reports that second- and third-degree burns can leave scars. This can permanently alter your appearance and create scar tissue, impeding your full range of motion. Compensation can account for the trauma created by your burn injury scars.
Property Damage Expenses
If you suffered harm in a collision, your vehicle might be damaged or totaled. We can seek recovery for your car’s replacement or repairs. We can also seek compensation for the cost of using rideshare services while you’re without transportation.
Wrongful Death-Related Losses
We’re truly sorry if you lost a loved one to a burn injury. Take all the time you need to grieve and celebrate your loved one’s life. While you spend time with your loved ones, we will seek these expenses:
- Your loved one’s end-of-life medical bills
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium, parental guidance, and household services
- Funeral expenses, including burial, cremation, and the service itself
Depending on your situation, we may seek other losses than those listed here. We will calculate your losses based on many aspects of your situation.
