Tragically, every year children suffer from disfiguring burn injuries in auto accidents,
home fires, day care fires, or exposure to dangerous chemicals. Frequently, these
injuries require a long succession of painful and expensive treatments. The following
are some frequently asked question asked by parents facing such injuries to a child:

Q. MY CHILD WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT AND SUFFERED BURN INJURIES
WHICH REQUIRE SURGERY, BUT WE HAVE NO HEALTH INSURANCE.
CAN YOU HELP?

Yes. In qualifying cases, we can assist you in obtaining high quality medical treatment for your child on a lien basis through our network of potential funding sources and healthcare professionals. Call us to find out how.

Q. ALTHOUGH MY CHILD IS COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE, THE INSURER
TELLS ME THAT THE PLASTIC RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY SHE NEEDS IS
NOT COVERED. WHAT CAN I DO?

Typically, health insurance plans will cover only those treatments which the insurer deems “medically necessary” and will not cover plastic reconstructions which it deems are for purely “cosmetic” or “aesthetic” purposes even if the injuries are profoundly disfiguring. In qualifying cases, we can assist you in obtaining on a lien basis those non-covered reconstructive and plastic procedures necessary for your child’s maximum possible physical and mental recovery.
