Hilton Head, SC Burn Injury
Burn injuries can be highly painful and traumatic, and they can cause permanent scarring and long-term disfigurement that require long-term, costly medical care.
Every year, around 500,000 people in the United States suffer burns that require medical attention, and around 40,000 require treatment at hospitals.
Unfortunately, burn injury treatments can be very expensive, which means victims of burn injuries often face tremendous financial burdens. If you or a loved one has suffered a burn injury, the experienced team of burn injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan in Hilton Head may be able to help you recover compensation.
We believe no one should face financial ruin because of their injuries. That’s why we proudly fight For the People against insurance companies and big corporations. Since 1988, Morgan & Morgan has helped our clients recover over $9 billion in damages — we are ready to fight for you, too.

Burns Suffered at Work
Burn injuries can occur in many types of workplaces. Our attorneys have extensive experience with workplace burn accidents. If you were injured at work, you may be able to file a claim under South Carolina’s workers’ compensation system. Workers’ compensation allows workers to recover benefits whether the accident was caused by the employee or employer.
In addition, if a product manufacturer, contractor, or other third party was responsible for the incident, your attorney may be able to file a claim against the at-fault party to seek further compensation.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
One of your attorney’s most important jobs is determining the total financial cost of your injuries. In most burn injury cases, we will attempt to recover some or all of the following types of damages:
- Medical costs, including past, present, and future expenses related to your burn injury
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Funeral expenses (in cases of wrongful death)
How a Burn Injury Attorney Can Help You
Morgan & Morgan’s burn injury attorneys can guide your case from start to finish. Your attorney will investigate your case and gather and review evidence, including fire department and police reports. They will also review medical records and consult medical experts to determine the full financial cost of your injuries. Finally, your attorney may hire safety inspectors, electricians, or accident investigators to help determine the cause of the accident and establish who is liable.
Your attorney can also attempt to negotiate a settlement. However, if the insurance company or party at fault won’t pay the full amount you are owed, Morgan & Morgan has the resources and experience to take your case to trial and win.
