Don't Get Burned! The Causes And Effects Of Burn Injury Claims
NASP Subrogation Litigation: Skills & Management Conference, New Orleans, LA
Burn injuries are unique from other worker’s compensation claims in that they are almost always high dollar value losses. Burn injuries and scars are life long and do not heal, commonly resulting in permanent disability. Investigating burn injuries is also complicated by the fact that injured claimants are often on a ventilator or in a coma, making it impossible to gather details on the nature of the loss. During the session, Robert Caplan, Jesse Cohen and Victoria Phillips explore the types of burns, such as electrical arc flash, thermal, and radiant, and look at recent advances in treatment.
