Burn Injury


The burn injury clients we have represented have been the victims of propane and natural gas explosions, scalds, car accidents and defective products. We have represented students who have been injured in chemistry labs while attending school. 

These cases are difficult and emotionally devastating.

Burn injury victims are referred to Varnum by medical care givers because we share the common goal of bringing healing to our clients. One member of our team had a 15-year career as a registered nurse in an acute care hospital prior to becoming an attorney. Because of our in-depth understanding of the medical needs and treatment required for burn injury victims, we have earned the respect of the medical care professionals with whom we work.

The personal injury attorneys at Varnum work to prevent accidents and provide financial support to many organizations dedicated to safety and prevention. Our attorneys are active in care-focused organizations such as the American Burn Association and the Phoenix Society for Burn Injuries. We regularly give presentations and write articles aimed at preventing injuries and treating the emotional injuries that are the most difficult part of recovery.

As lawyers representing burn survivors and families of burn victims for over 40 years, we have learned what information you need if you or a loved one are badly burned. Our Legal Rights of Burn Survivors booklet identifies money that may be available for your treatment, information about financial assistance when you cannot work, government benefits, insurance benefits and lawsuits, as well as resources that will help you deal with the devastation of your injury.

For more information, please contact either your Varnum attorney, Bonnie Sawusch at 269/553-3508 or, or Peter Smit at 616/336-6508 or
