Burn Survivors

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 SURVIVOR STORIES

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.

OUR SERVICES

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

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.

Legal

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.

Support

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.
