Burn injuries are one of the most traumatic physical injuries that a person can experience. Along with the devastating physical injury, burn injuries can result in disfigurement, scaring, past and future pain and suffering. Depending on the nature of the injury, recovering from burns can require multiple surgeries and months of physical rehabilitation. Lifetime expenses associated with burn injury can easily reach millions of dollars.
Private health insurance companies, self-insureds, and managed care insurers can reduce, limit, or refuse to pay benefits for burn injuries at any time. The trend is for health insurers to pay burn injury benefits for a limited period. Unlike most burn injury attorneys, Mr. Romano will advocate and fight with his client’s health insurer to maximize their rehabilitation care. A prompt extensive investigation to determine what caused an individual’s burn injury is needed to determine what funds will be available to pay for short-term and long-term benefits.

Joseph Romano is a liability lawyer with a modern-day twist: He also guides his clients through the mazes of managed care”.

Are you wondering how to find a burn injury lawyer near you?
Joseph Romano is a nationally recognized burn injury lawyer. He can answer all your questions, address your concerns, promptly investigate, file a lawsuit, appeal denials of health insurance benefits, and identify funding to pay for the patient’s medical care and rehabilitation.
A burn injury is legally unique because the evidence available for inspection after a burn injury is often destroyed or discarded. As a result, burn injuries should be evaluated as soon as possible after the accident to preserve evidence, take photographs, witness statements, etc.
As with any legal claim, personal injury lawsuits must be initiated within a specific timeframe. This period varies depending upon the facts of the case and the state where the injury or accident occurred. If the case does not commence before the deadline, the court will refuse to hear it. If a loved one’s burn injury occurred sometime in the past, you may still have a case, but the time may be running out.
Long-term rehabilitation management for a burn injury continues to be dictated by funding resources. It is important to stress that families need to contact an attorney or advocate who knows every aspect of the long-term care continuum to receive the best treatment, therapies, advice, and guidance. The outcome of a loved one’s recovery depends on identifying and securing all funding resources necessary to maximize recovery.
All burn injury lawsuits are handled on a contingency basis so there will not be a cost to you unless there is a financial recovery made on your case.
Mr. Romano, along with qualified co-counsel, represents burn injury clients throughout the United States.
