Compensation For Severe Burns, Scars And Disfigurement

Some injuries never heal no matter how much time passes. Such a person may be able-bodied yet suffer physical, psychological and emotional pain, as well as impediments to their employment and social life.

At R. Mark Maritote, P.C., our job is to identify the liable parties and portray these collateral effects in a tangible and compelling way to insurance adjusters or jury members. We have obtained notable recoveries for catastrophic accidents, including victims of serious burns, facial scars and other disfiguring injuries.

Burn Injuries And Scarring

We handle burns and disfigurement arising from motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, dog bites and medical negligence. Mark Maritote is a veteran personal injury trial lawyer who draws on more than 30 years of experience to establish a causal connection between the accident and the negligence of individuals and entities.

We know that an altered appearance can affect a person's life just as profoundly as broken bones or internal injuries. We know that the surface injuries may be just the tip of the iceberg. Working closely with victims and families, we document the extent of injury, the personal aftermath and ongoing needs, such as:

  • Weeks or months in the burn ward
  • Multiple skin graft surgeries
  • Physical therapy to regain mobility
  • Permanent nerve damage
  • Eye injuries
  • Scarring of the face, head or hands
  • Chronic pain
  • Psychological counseling
  • Assisted living care
  • Depression and social isolation

Committed To Full Compensation

These damages can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars over a lifetime, especially when disabling burns or disfiguring injuries prevent a person from working or limit his or her employability. At R. Mark Maritote, P.C., we will pursue justice, all the way to trial if necessary, to make sure our clients are compensated fairly for life-altering injuries.

We serve DuPage County, Cook County and clients throughout Illinois. Call our Bloomingdale office to arrange a free consultation with our burn injury lawyer or contact us online.
