Recovering Compensation Based on Your South Carolina Burn Injuries
If we find evidence to support another party’s careless or reckless actions causing your injuries, we can file an insurance claim or lawsuit against them to recover compensation. This compensation depends on your incurred damages, meaning the expenses and losses you endured because of the accident and your injuries.
Burn injuries can be costly and require extensive treatment. Some people suffer lasting impairments as a result. Damages recoverable in these cases could include:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs and therapy
- Wages and benefits lost
- Diminished earning capacity
- Miscellaneous related expenses
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced quality of life
- Other intangible damages
Fatal Burn Injury Cases
Burn injuries have a high risk of infection and can be life-threatening. If your loved one suffered severe burns and passed away as a result, your family may have a wrongful death case against the at-fault party. This could allow you to recover damages such as:
- Medical bills incurred before their death
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of income
- Loss of services
- Non-economic damages suffered by surviving family members
We can explain more about your legal rights and options based on the details of your case during a free consultation.

Understanding the Intricacies of South Carolina Burn Injury Cases
Burns are injuries to the body caused by fire, radiation, heat, electricity, or chemicals. Severe burns, such as those that cover a large portion of the body or impact internal organs, are often fatal; others result in lifelong medical complications. In addition to lasting physical damage to the skin and altering physical appearances, a serious burn injury can have significant psychological and emotional effects on the sufferer.
Doctors classify burn injuries in the first, second, third, or fourth degree, each representing an increasing level of severity. The following is a short description of each:
- First-degree burns: The least severe type of burn, first-degree burns affect the outer layer of the skin. They cause minor pain and redness in this area. Sunburns are generally first-degree burns.
- Second-degree burns: These burns affect the first and second layers of skin. Second-degree burns can cause blistering, fluid buildup, and damage to deeper skin tissues, resulting in a whitened outer appearance.
- Third-degree burns: These burns are “severe” in nature and involve the charring of all the skin’s different layers. The skin affected by a third-degree burn turns hard, thick, and leathery. Fluid buildup occurs, and the area may become purple. Third-degree burns may not feel painful because of the nerve damage involved. Plastic surgery such as skin grafting may be necessary.
- Fourth-degree burns: These burns are the most severe. Fourth-degree burns can result in the complete charring of all the layers of the skin and muscle tissue and into the bone. Fourth-degree burns are often life-threatening or fatal and generally require extensive plastic surgery.
Deadlines for Suing the Liable Party for South Carolina Burn Injuries
South Carolina has a general deadline for filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit under S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530. This statute gives most victims only three years from the date of the incident or the date of their loved one’s death to file a lawsuit. Missing this deadline could cause you to lose the right to sue.
Building a personal injury case can take months, so we recommend reaching out to us as soon as possible. If your loved one suffered severe burns, you can connect with us on their behalf while they undergo treatment and recovery. We will review the case today for free.
