About Carlson Bier

Burn Injuries Lawyers in Roxana Illinois

At Carlson Bier, we understand that the trauma of burn injuries extends far beyond the physical pain. As experienced personal injury attorneys based in Illinois, our expertise includes a comprehensive understanding of burn injuries, their causes and effects, as well as the legal avenues available to those who have suffered such incidents.

Burn injuries are a serious form of harm that can result from various incidents including car accidents, chemical exposure, fire, electrical accidents or even faulty products. The immediate physical damage is often severe but it’s also crucial to consider potential long-term effects. These may include prolonged hospital stays and multiple surgeries along with ongoing medical conditions such as infection risk and mobility issues.

• Severity: Burn injuries could range from minor first-degree burns affecting only the outer layer of skin to catastrophic fourth-degree burns penetrating deep into tissues, muscles or bones.

• Pain Management: Optimum treatment requires effective pain management which has its own complications like drug addiction.

• Emotional Trauma: The psychological impact can be equally devastating causing depression or Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

• Scarification & Disfigurement: Many burn victims face lasting disfigurement despite plastic surgery options.

The victim’s ability to lead a normal life can be severely impacted by these factors – redirecting their career paths and altering personal relationships. While health insurance might cover some expenses, the sky-high costs related to treatments not covered under standard policies might leave families financially strained.

In these challenging circumstances, civil litigation offers an opportunity for burn victims to recover compensatory damages that go beyond covering only medical bills. Damages typically include lost wages due to time off work during recovery or reduced earning capacity if your ability to work is permanently affected; compensation for pain and suffering undergoing intense physical discomfort; emotional distress caused because of your new reality post-injury among others.

Understanding legal rights following a burn injury is vital but navigating through complex procedures alone while dealing with profound loss is overwhelming. This highlights the compelling need for expert legal assistance.

• Personal Injury Law and Burn Injuries: The law allows burn victims to pursue justice against negligent parties that indirectly or directly caused their injury.

• Proving Negligence: Establishing this claim necessitates demonstrating the responsibility of another party in causing your harm.

• Statute of Limitations: In Illinois, you generally have two years from the date of your burn accident to file a lawsuit.

At Carlson Bier, as skilled personal injury attorneys specializing in burn injuries, we bring an unwavering dedication to our clients’ cases. Our team is committed to examining all aspects thoroughly – detailed investigation of the case specifics, diligent exploration into potential causes, exhaustive analysis of medical reports – leaving no stone unturned in ensuring rightful compensation for our clients’ suffering.

Notable Illinois Appellate Wins

Moruzzi v. CCC Servs., Inc., 2020 IL App (2d) 190411, 171 N.E.3d 61
Background: Insured motorist filed action against insurer for declaratory judgment seeking construction of automobile insurance policy issued to insured and that was in effect when insured was injured by an underinsured driver. The Circuit Court, DuPage County, Bonnie M. Wheaton, J., granted the insurer's motions for summary judgment. Insured appealed.Holdings: The Appellate Court, Zenoff, J., held that:1 medical payments reduction clause in automobile insurance policy conflicted with underinsured motorist provisions so as to render reduction clause ambiguous, and thus medical payment benefits were deductible from insured's damages;2 law firm representing insured did not create common fund or common funds when it reached settlement with underinsured motorist, and thus law firm was not entitled to recover fees under common-fund doctrine; and3 collateral estoppel did not bar automobile insurers from litigating whether common-fund doctrine applied in insured motorist's declaratory judgment action.Affirmed in part and reversed in part.
Maier v. CC Servs., Inc., 2019 IL App (3d) 170640, 132 N.E.3d 795
Background: After insured, who was injured in automobile collision with another driver, recovered full liability limits of driver's policy, she filed amended complaint for declaratory judgment against her own automobile insurer, alleging that insurer breached contractual duty to pay for insured's damages in accordance with uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage in insured's policy and that insurer acted in bad faith in denying insured such coverage. The Circuit Court, La Salle County, Troy D. Holland, J., granted the insurer's motion to dismiss claims as time-barred. Insured appealed.The Appellate Court ruled that neither the insurer nor the insured could add amended policy provisions to the court record. It was decided that the policy's requirement for a written arbitration demand applied to both uninsured and underinsured motorist claims. The court found that a letter from the insured's attorney to the insurer wasn't a valid arbitration demand nor a proof of loss to toll the statute of limitations. Finally, the insurer was permitted to use the defense based on the two-year statute of limitations period. The court's decision was affirmed.
Econ. Premier Assurance Co. v. Country Mut. Ins. Co., 2021 IL App (1st) 192364-U
Holding: The circuit court's order that granted defendant's motion for summary judgment and denied plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment was proper where defendant had no duty to indemnify its insured with respect to the underlying complaint and therefore plaintiff was not entitled to recover against defendant on its subrogation or unjust enrichment claims; affirmed.
Country Preferred Ins. Co. v. Westerheide, 2023 IL App (5th) 220343-U
Holding: The court affirmed judgment of the circuit court granting summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff where the defendant failed to make a written demand for arbitration within two years from the date of the accident as required by the underinsured provisions of the defendant's automotive insurance policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Olsak, 2022 IL App (1st) 200695, 216 N.E.3d 291
In a complex legal case, an insurer sought to avoid defending or indemnifying a hockey player under a policy issued to the player's stepfather after the player was sued for assaulting his coach. The initial Circuit Court ruling favored the insurer, but the Appellate Court reversed this decision, leading to a protracted legal battle. Ultimately, the Appellate Court determined the insurer was liable only up to the $3 million policy limit and found the insurer's four-year delay in seeking a declaratory judgment to be reasonable. This case highlights important aspects of insurance litigation and policy limit liabilities.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Durkin Elec. Co., Inc., 2022 IL App (1st) 210293-U, appeal denied, 199 N.E.3d 1187 (Ill. 2022)
Holding: The circuit court's order that denied plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment and found that defendant was an additional insured under the policy was proper. The circuit court's order that denied defendant's motion for summary judgment and found that plaintiff did not have a duty to defend or indemnify defendant under the policy was proper; affirmed.
Country Preferred Ins. Co. v. Groen, 2017 IL App (4th) 160028, 69 N.E.3d 911
Background: Uninsured motorist (UM) carrier brought action against insured for declaratory judgment that it owed no benefits since workers' compensation received by insured exceeded policy limits. The Circuit Court, Sangamon County, Chris Perrin, J., entered summary judgment in favor of the carrier. Insured appealed.Holdings: The Appellate Court, Harris, J., held that:1 employer's medical payments entitled carrier to setoff, and2 setoff clauses were enforceable.Affirmed.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Frobish, 2021 IL App (3d) 190473-U
Holding: Allegations in the underlying complaint that a township employee caused property damage by excavating and digging out a ditch failed to impose a duty to defend under township employee's individual farm insurance policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Jones, 2018 IL App (1st) 173154-U
Holding: The judgment of the circuit court of Cook County is affirmed; plaintiff is entitled to summary judgment on its claim for a declaratory judgment that it has no duty to defend or indemnify its insured against the underlying complaint because the loss claimed in the underlying complaint is subject to an exclusion. The court held that it would also enter judgment for plaintiff because the underlying complaint does not allege an “occurrence” causing bodily injury within the meaning of the policy.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Schmitt, 2021 IL App (5th) 190173-U
Holding: The appellate court reversed and remanded the judgment of the circuit court where plaintiff had no duty to defend its insured and thus was not stopped from raising policy defenses to coverage for the underlying tort action contained in the amended declaratory action.
Country Mut. Ins. Co. v. Livorsi Marine, Inc., 222 Ill. 2d 303, 856 N.E.2d 338 (2006) (the late Keith Carlson)
Liability insurer brought action against insureds for a declaratory judgment based on failure to provide timely notice of lawsuits against them. The Circuit Court, Cook County, Stephen A. Schiller, J., entered judgment for the insurer. Insureds appealed. The Appellate Court, Wolfson, J., 358 Ill.App.3d 880, 295 Ill.Dec. 665, 833 N.E.2d 871, affirmed. Leave to appeal was granted.Holdings: The Supreme Court, Garman, J., held that:1 if the insurer did not receive reasonable notice of an occurrence or a lawsuit, the policyholder may not recover under the policy, regardless of whether the lack of reasonable notice prejudiced the insurer, overruling Rice v. AAA Aerostar, Inc., 294 Ill.App.3d 801, 229 Ill.Dec. 20, 690 N.E.2d 1067, and Cincinnati Insurance Co. v. Baur's Opera House, Inc., 296 Ill.App.3d 1011, 230 Ill.Dec. 624, 694 N.E.2d 593, and2 insured did not need to prove that it was prejudiced by delayed notice of lawsuits.Affirmed.

Burn Accident FAQ​

There are three main types of burn injuries:

  • First-degree burns: These burns affect the outer layer of skin, the epidermis. They cause redness, pain, and swelling.
  • Second-degree burns: These burns affect the epidermis and the dermis, the second layer of skin. They cause redness, pain, swelling, and blistering.
  • Third-degree burns: These burns destroy the epidermis and the dermis, and can also damage the underlying tissues. They cause white, leathery, or charred skin.

Burn injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Heat: This includes flames, hot liquids, steam, and hot objects.
  • Electricity: Electrical burns can be caused by contact with live wires or outlets.
  • Chemicals: Chemical burns can be caused by exposure to acids, alkalis, and other corrosive substances.
  • Radiation: Radiation burns can be caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or to other types of radiation.
