Kirby & Holt - North Carolina Burn Injury Lawyers
Recent advances in medical technology have significantly improved the survival rate for persons badly burned in explosions, fires, or motor vehicle accidents ; but modern medicine has yet to spare the survivors of fire injuries from the worst pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has survived a fire, scalding, electrocution, or exposure to caustic chemicals, contact the North Carolina personal injury compensation attorneys at Kirby & Holt.
Whether injuries were caused by an exploding gas tank, a burning building, or an electrical shock, the path to recovery is often long and difficult. Lengthy periods of hospitalization, physical therapy, and reconstructive surgery are the likely prospects for serious burn injury victims. Child victims can sometimes undergo twenty years of surgery to restore their skin, while for burn victims of any age, the emotional trauma of isolation, disfigurement, and constant discomfort can lead to severe depression and other problems.
At Kirby & Holt, we're committed to doing everything we can to ease burn victims’ recovery from horrific injuries.
One of our staff nurses, Ernest Grant, has 20 years of experience with intensive care and severe burn injury patients, and has served as the chief burn nurse at the University of North Carolina Hospitals. He has won numerous awards for his professional service, including recognition as the North Carolina Nurses Association's Medical-Surgical Nurse of the Year, as well as the Governor's Award of Excellence, our state's top honor for a government employee. Ernest was named a member of the Great 100, the 100 best nurses in North Carolina. And he received a national award from Nursing Spectrum magazine in being named 2002 Nurse of the Year, for which he was honored at the White House by the President. Ernest’s caring attention and ongoing support for our present and former burn injury clients has been a valuable resource both for them and for us.
Our North Carolina burn injury attorneys apply their understanding of these serious injuries to help our clients obtain the greatest compensation possible under the facts and the law.
