“Shared sorrow is half a sorrow; shared joy is a double joy” – Proverb
After a burn injury, recovery from your trauma extends beyond just your wounds. We firmly believe that sharing your story with others who can relate to your experience can soften the road the recovery. By discussing your experiences with others, you not only receive the necessary information and emotional support to get you through this time, but you provide inspiration for others as well.
Friends & Family
When a loved one has suffered from a burn injury, many family and friends experience devastation that is difficult to shoulder alone. Our Resource Community not only offers a resource to find help, but it offers a community where friends and families of burn victims can find solace through others who can truly understand and relate.
Burn Care Professionals
Medical and other burn care professionals are encouraged to share their experiences with the Burn Survivor Resource community. This can help offer encouragement as well as recommendations to burn survivors and their loved ones. If you are a burn care professional, we welcome your insights and recommendations.

While the Burn Survivor Resource Community does offer advice on where victims and their families can get the
help they need, just as often what people really need is an ear to listen and a heart to understand them.
Although this website does provide essential burn-related medical information and legal counsel for victims seeking justice and compensation for their burn injuries, The Burn Survivor Resource Community is focused on creating the single largest burn survivor community in the world. We are dedicated to creating a place where victims can share their stories and find support and advice from other burn survivors, their loved ones, and burn care professionals who help victims recover from their tragic accidents. We invite you to join our community, and we hope that it provides you with the information and compassion that every burn survivor deserves.
Medical care during the first 48 hours after a burn injury occurs is the most critical. The challenge for healthcare professionals lies in getting burn patients through the initial stages of recovery, focusing on the prevention of fluid loss and preventing and controlling infection.
The Burn Survivor Resource Community will help burn victims and their family get sound legal advice regarding a victim’s entitlement to compensation for medical and family bills, as well as other services and help that can be of aid on their road to recovery.
While the physical recovery is extraordinarily difficult, the emotional recovery is equally challenging. Our community provides a a platform for survivors, their loved ones and their care-givers to share their stories and to provide one another with vital support and understanding.
"My son was terribly burned in a stove accident. It was a very difficult case because my son was disabled before the accident and had a lot of trouble communicating how the accident happened. Mr. Brenner was not only extremely sympathetic to his condition and despite all the obstacles there were, he won the case. Because of the settlement I have been able to provide my son with incredible medical and home care. It has not only made my son’s life better, it completely took the financial stress away from and allowed me to just focus on loving and caring for my son. To this day, my son still calls him Uncle Bob. I can’t properly express my gratitude for the difference Mr. Brenner made in our lives." - Tasha B.
"In life there are the mowers of the lawns, the well poisoners and the life enhancers. Bob Brenner is the latter and I am deeply thankful for my good fortune in having him as my lawyer. We won my burn injury case because of Bob’s astute, incisive and fearless leadership. "His skills as a lawyer resulted in a multi-million dollar settlement. My recovery and now my life have been optimal because of this man and I will always be forever grateful." - Robert D.
"I was involved in an electrocution accident when my wife was 8 months pregnant. Because of the $38 million settlement Bob won for me I was not only able to afford the finest medical care and because of that I fully recovered, and I never had to worry again about taking care of my family again. 22 years later we still get together for breakfast to talk . He not only saved my life, he changed my life for the better!" - Bob M.
"My father was a passenger in an 18-wheeler, when it was involved in an accident. My father was severely burned and then died after 7 days in the hospital. The case took 5 years to resolve and throughout that time Mr. Brenner truly became a family friend who was there for us every step of the way. The case was resolved 2 years ago and to this day we stay in touch. I cannot thank Mr. Brenner enough for everything he did for our family throughout such a painful and difficult time." - Pam L.
