Los Angeles Burn Injury Attorney
After suffering a catastrophic burn injury in a fire, explosion, or any other type of preventable accident, please do not hesitate to contact an experienced burn injury lawyer in San Diego at the Mitchell Law Corporation. Severe burn injuries can not only cause debilitating pain, but can also cause crippling financial strain on victims and their families. Although workers’ compensation benefits, medical insurance or homeowners insurance may cover some treatment costs, it may not even come close to compensating a victim’s medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages.
If you believe someone else was responsible for inflicting a serious burn injury you or your loved one suffered, you may need expert legal representation. Filing a personal injury claim can be difficult without the representation of a qualified attorney. Individuals who recruit our legal team to represent them typically receive more money for injury-related damages and higher quality medical care. We have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients and are passionate about making sure every victim gets the funds they need for costly surgeries, hospital stays, and doctor visits.
Common Causes of Burn Injuries
Almost 43 percent of reported burn injuries are caused by direct contact with an open flame, such as candles, bonfires, fireplace fires, lighters, and matches.
Scalding water or other type of liquid causes approximately 34 percent of all burn injuries sustained in the U.S. Sadly, burn injuries caused by scalding liquids primarily affect young children. Hot liquids caused 65 percent of all burn injuries sustained by children under the age of four.
Young children are also more likely to be burned by contact. Contact burn injuries caused almost 20 percent of all burns sustained by children under the age of four.
Chemical and electrical
Although not as common flame or scalding liquid burns, chemical and electrical burns do harm a number of individuals each year.
Recovering Financial Compensation
Although some burn injuries are sustained in unavoidable accidents, some are the result of driver negligence, defective product design, abuse, arson or hazardous conditions. If you believe your burn injury was a result of negligence, abuse, arson or hazardous conditions, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation and should not wait to take action.
The state imposes strict time limits on filing a personal injury claim and will not allow victims to take legal action after the time limits have expired. Do not risk losing your ability to file a claim and recover monetary damages. Contact an ethical burn injury lawyer in Los Angeles at the Mitchell Law Corporation right now.
