Ariel Law Group Will Fight ForYour Rights In Burn Injury Cases

Burn Injury Lawyer Serving California

A fire, explosion, or any other accident that results in a severe burn injury can be very traumatic, particularly if it was caused by the negligence of another person or entity. A burn injury lawyer will get you the justice you deserve as you recover.

Both mentally and physically, your life is interrupted after an accident as you undergo excessive medical, surgical, and rehabilitative procedures. In some cases, you may expect to recover most of your capabilities in time, but in other cases, your injuries may stop you from working altogether. You may become overwhelmed by bills as you recover from this traumatic event. You may become increasingly depressed and angry as you try to cope with your situation and the annoying calls from creditors. Ariel Law Group is here for you and we’ll fight to get you the justice you deserve.

Do I need to hire a burn injury lawyer?

Yes. Burn injuries can result in permanent damage, disability, or even death. If you have experienced an accident that resulted in severe burn injuries, we recommend hiring a burn injury lawyer. 

These injuries require medical attention, which places a burden of medical bills on the victim in addition to psychological trauma. If you have been the victim of an accident, it is within your rights to sue the parties responsible for your medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. Hiring an experienced California burn injury lawyer can’t undo the damage, but it can help you make sure that you get the restitution you deserve as you recover both physically and mentally.

If your family member or loved one lost their life due to a burn injury, you also have a right to sue for their untimely death. We know that compensation won’t make the loss of your loved one easier, however, we believe that it is important to hold people accountable for their negligence. Getting the compensation and justice you deserve can also help provide an important sense of closure.

  • 2nd-degree burns

What is the average settlement amount in a burn injury case?

In these cases, the amount of your settlement will depend on a variety of factors, such as

  • The extent of the victim’s injuries
  • Whether or not the victim’s injuries exacerbated a pre-existing condition
  • Whether or not the responsible party/parties acted recklessly or with negligence
  • If the victim was partially responsible for the accident.

What type of compensation may I be entitled to after a burn injury?

If you are involved in an accident that has left you with severe burn injuries, the compensation you are entitled to will be influenced by a variety of factors. Some of these factors include the following.

  • Past, present, and future medical bills related to injuries sustained in the accident. This includes hospital bills, ambulance bills, physical therapy, consultations with specialists, and in-home care services
  • Past and future lost wages resulting from the accident.
  • Out-of-pocket expenses caused by expenses resulting from the accident.
  • Pain and suffering resulting from physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of consortium. 
  • Punitive damages if the accident was the result of malicious or willful actions.
  • Wrongful death damages if a close relative dies resulting from a burn injury.

What you are entitled to may not yet be clear to you, but an experienced burn injury lawyer will analyze your case to determine the damages you are entitled to. 

How long do I have to sue following my accident?

Victims of these kinds of accidents have two years after the incident to file their case. After these two years have passed, victims can no longer sue, so it’s best to hire a burn injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Losing a Loved One

In certain situations, a burn injury can result in death. Whether this happens at once or months or years after the accident, family members must mourn the loss of a loved one. They also often lose the financial security their loved ones provided for the family and risk serious financial distress.
