Resources That May Be Able To Help You After A Burn Injury

Life after a burn injury can be difficult, especially if you try to deal with everything yourself. Fortunately, help and guidance are available ― meaning you don't have to face this difficult journey alone.

Below is a list* of some of the resources available that may be able to help you understand your injury and assist you with rebuilding your life:

  • Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation: A California-based nonprofit health organization committed to providing services and support to burn injury victims, including residential summer camps for child burn survivors (www.aarbf.org).
  • Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors: A nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering burn injury victims through education, peer support and advocacy (www.phoenix-society.org).
  • Shriners Hospitals for Children: A nationwide network of hospitals dedicated to treating children with burn injuries and other special health care needs regardless of a family's ability to pay. They have locations throughout the nation, including Los Angeles (www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org; www.losangelesshrinershospital.org).
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA): A nonprofit organization devoted to eliminating death and injury due to fire and other related hazards. The NFPA provides a broad range of helpful guidance, including safety information, training and fire-related research (www.nfpa.org).

Are Legal Resources Also Available?

Depending on the circumstances, you may also be entitled to seek compensation from the parties responsible for your burn-related injuries, including the manufacturers and designers of defective or dangerous products ― such as defective heaters or faulty electrical components.

This means you may be able to collect damages to cover your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. To determine what legal options may apply to your situation, it is best to contact an experienced burn injury lawyer as soon as possible.
