As an experienced personal injury lawyer, Bill Nettles has seen how a catastrophic personal injury can disrupt a life. You lose so much of yourself when you're hurt and your life becomes about recovery and pain management.

How We Can Help You
Burn injuries come with various categories of severity. First and second degree burns, while painful ad quite serious at the time, usually do not result in long-term damage or debilitation. You should take these injuries seriously and get them treated immediately, of course, but they don't usually pose a long-term threat to your health and ability to earn a living.
Third-degree burns, on the other hand, are exceptionally serious, and they almost invariably cause serious long-term damage. These burn injuries require extensive medical treatment, including:
- Skin grafts
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Unfortunately, the reality of the American medical system is that all of this costs money, and a lot of it. And if your burn injuries are severe enough, you might well lose the ability to earn a living. This is true even for those who work non-stressful, white collar jobs – think of someone who works all day at a computer and suffers third-degree burns on his or her hands and fingers.
This is the situation the personal injury system was designed to address. As the victim of another person's negligence and misconduct, you have the right to pursue compensation from the responsible party. You shouldn't have to bear the costs of another person's error.
Mr. Nettles can pursue compensation for medical expenses and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering and other costs. There are no guarantees in personal injury law, but our attorney has decades of experience in the field. We understand the seriousness of your situation and we will treat you with the respect and sensitivity you deserve.
