Each year, thousands of people die from burn injuries and many more are left severely injured and disfigured. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, P.C., we understand how completely burn injuries can change the lives of injured people and their families. More than just the physical pain of a burn, victims experience serious psychological and financial challenges that are difficult to overcome.
Our New Haven law firm represents burn victims in personal injury lawsuits. Serving clients throughout Connecticut, we are dedicated to achieving the best possible results. This often means negotiating favorable settlements while preparing extensively for trial. If negotiations fail, we are well-prepared to take effective action in Connecticut courts.
Burn injuries occur in many different types of accidents. Our clients are people who have experienced thermal burns from fire, steam, hot objects and explosions, as well as chemical burns. We also represent people who have experienced electrical burns and the surviving family members of electrocution victims.
For many burn victims, the skin is not the only area affected. Burns can damage the muscles, bones, nerves and blood vessels involved, as well as the respiratory system. Victims of severe burns are highly susceptible to infection, and often experience respiratory problems or suffer brain damage as a result of smoke inhalation or burns to their lungs.
Scar tissue can limit a person’s ability to regulate body temperature or experience sun exposure. It can also limit the body’s normal fluid balance and joint function. Scarring can also have a profound emotional impact.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, P.C., we understand the serious effects of a burn injury. Our lawyers are dedicated to maximizing personal injury cases for settlement or trial.

Once you have received a settlement offer, deciding whether to take it can be a challenge. Our attorneys guide you through the decision-making process and help you predict possible outcomes.
