Burn injuries hold the potential to do more than cause pain and scarring. Severe burns can lead to a lifetime need for medical treatment, partial or total disability, death, and ongoing pain in the patients. With the help of a burn injury attorney in California, victims and their families can get the compensation they need and deserve. 

Burn victims face a long road to recovery. From physical and mental recovery to the stress of proving their claim to recover financial damages, it’s not a road to walk alone. A burn injury attorney in CA can make a positive difference during the fight. 

Understanding the Common Causes of Burn Injuries

While burn injuries can happen in many ways, they are often classified by a category that explains the origination. These categories are:

  • Electrical burns. An electrical burn happens when something of an electrical nature harms a person and causes a burn. For example, if someone is injured because of an electrical issue, even if they aren’t an electrician, this would be an electrical burn.
  • Chemical burns. A chemical burn occurs when someone is burned because of their exposure or use of chemicals. If someone throws acid on a victim and a burn occurs, that is a chemical burn. If someone works with chemicals and sustains some type of burn injury, that is a chemical burn. For example, people who work with bleach and other caustic cleaning substances face a risk of chemical burns. Many chemicals can result in a burn of this nature and damage the patient’s epidermis. 
  • Thermal burns. A thermal burn is caused by an actual heat source. For example, scalding hot water or oil causes damage to the victim. Steam and actual fire can cause thermal burns.
  • Radiation. Radiation burns are caused by UV light. This could be a burn from the sun or even while receiving radiation treatment if negligence was somehow involved. While it is common for radiation treatment to cause mild burns or redness, they may also happen as a result of negligence.

Securing Compensation for Burn Injury Sufferers

Securing compensation for burn injury patients is vital. Getting the right care is crucial for the best possible recovery. Some of the compensation that burn injury victims may be entitled to receive include:

  • Medical expenses. Many burn injuries require ongoing medical treatment. The cost depends on the severity of the burns and other injuries incurred because of the burn. 
  • Lost wages and income. From time off work for recovery to the potential of no longer working in the same job or industry.
  • Emotional distress. Patients living with burn injuries often exhibit signs of emotional distress. They may be entitled to compensation because of it.
  • Loss of enjoyment. Many patients cannot participate in their regular life, let alone their favorite activities. They may be eligible to receive compensation due to their loss of enjoyment.
  • Disfigurement and scarring. If a burn injury victim has disfigurement or scarring, they may receive financial compensation because of it. Many scars and other disfigurements caused by burns can result in dealing with pain for the rest of their lives. They may also suffer mentally because of their change in appearance.
  • Pain and suffering. Some patients experience ongoing pain and suffering, both mentally and physically. Those who do may be entitled to receive compensation. While this is non-economic damage, it’s often very helpful for victims because they’re able to pursue treatment.

The amount of financial damage that may be inflicted on the victim depends on many factors. One such factor is ongoing complications and the need for future medical assistance.

Ongoing Complications and Treatment

The need for ongoing treatment and the development of complications is based on the severity of the burn injuries.

With second and third-degree burns, it isn’t just the top level of skin, known as the epidermis, that gets injured. The dermis, which is the second layer of skin, is impacted by these. Additionally, a third-degree burn may also damage the fat layer underneath the skin.

Complications and treatment may include:

  • Amputation;
  • Scarring and disfigurement;
  • Neuropathy;
  • Loss of mobility;
  • Increased risk of infection due to the burn.

Pursuing Justice for Burn Injury Victims

The California burn injury attorneys of Kermani LLP are dedicated to pursuing financial and legal justice for their clients. The team helps clients by:

  • Preserving and securing evidence;
  • Communicating with the insurance company and any other defendants on behalf of clients;
  • Reviewing and completing legal and insurance-related documents;
  • Developing the right legal strategies to support the claim;
  • Negotiating on behalf of clients;
  • Diligently pursuing fair financial compensation if a trial is necessary.

The objective of Kermani LLP’s burn injury lawyers in California is to act as an advocate to protect and represent clients while preserving their legal rights.

Navigating the Process of Filing a Burn Injury Claim

Handling the process of filing this type of claim first depends on how the burn occurred. For example, a burn caused by a person’s negligence and a burn that is caused by premises liability such as faulty wiring have different steps. However, they all start with proving negligence. The overall process of these claims includes:

  1. Getting emergency help. 
  2. Reaching the insurance company to start a claim. 
  3. Attend all appointments so that documentation is established related to the care plan for the injuries. 
  4. Schedule a consultation with a burn injury lawyer in CA.

What should I do immediately after sustaining a burn injury in California?

If you sustain a burn injury in California, then the first thing you need to do is get prompt medical attention. If your situation is a serious emergency, then don’t hesitate to call 911. Otherwise, report the burn accident and help file a report. As soon as you do so, get medical care to ensure your physical safety.

What types of compensation can I seek for a burn injury in California?

After a burn injury, you can seek compensation for the expenses you incur because of your injury. This could include losses like the cost of your medical bills, any future medical expenses you’ll acquire during your recovery period, any wages you would’ve earned if you didn’t get hurt, and any type of emotional distress brought on due to the injury. If you have other losses associated with your accident, then a lawyer can help you determine if you can pursue compensation for it depending on your situation.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a burn injury lawsuit in California?

You have up to two years after experiencing a burn injury to pursue a personal injury claim for compensation.

How are burn injury settlements calculated?

Burn injury settlements are calculated by first adding up all the economic losses associated with the accident. Next, the non-economic damages are considered and attributed to a multiplier amount (1.5 to 5). The economic damages are multiplied by this number and added to the original economic damages estimate.

What evidence is required to prove negligence in a burn injury case in California?

To prove negligence in a burn injury claim, you need to be able to prove each of the following elements:

  • A legal duty of care existed between the responsible party and the injured party.
  • The accountable party failed to uphold their duty of care.
  • This failure led to the accident.
  • The accident caused your burn injury and losses.

The evidence you’ll need might include things like video evidence that shows what happened during the crash, medical bills that document how much you paid for treatment, a wage statement from an employer stating how much you earn on average and how much money you’ve lost out on, and other evidence that backs up your claims.

Are there specific laws in California that affect burn injury claims?

In California, burn injury claims are handled like other types of personal injury claims. A legal duty of care must be established, which is often present due to specific laws in California. For instance, under premises liability laws, property owners have to ensure their properties are reasonably safe for guests. If an invited individual gets severely burned by a dangerous condition on the property, then the property owner could be held liable.

How can a burn injury lawyer help me with my case in California?

A burn injury lawyer can help advise you on your best course of action based on the facts surrounding your accident and losses. They can help you structure the best possible claim, collect evidence, file the right paperwork, negotiate with the responsible party, and help represent you while advocating for your rights throughout the entire process.
