Legal Help for a Burn Injury
Our personal injury lawyers at Hodes Milman are experienced in handling lawsuits seeking damages for burn injuries. The severity of a burn injury can mean the difference in discomfort or possibly facing a disability.
While burn injuries are most commonly associated with exposure to fire, some of the most serious burns are caused by chemicals, solvents, and other caustic substances that are commonplace in many American homes and workplaces. In fact, many people suffer burn injuries while at work.
Causes of Burn Injuries
Not every burn injury warrants litigation, but if the burn resulted from someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Severe burn injuries can result from various incidents including:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Defective products
- Chemical burns
- House fires
If you were involved in an accident that caused a burn injury, or if you lost a loved one because of another’s negligence, contact our skilled personal injury attorneys today.
“I am a Northern California government attorney who referred a family member to DANIEL HODES for an initial consultation. As an attorney who deals with different law firms every day, I know there is wide spectrum when it comes to finding legal competence and professionalism. It was very important for me to not refer my family member to a “hack” firm or a soul-less attorney that only evaluates cases by mere dollar signs. There are human dynamics and complicated relationships in life that require the best attorneys to take a more intellectual and holistic approach to case evaluation. Fortunately, we found that Mr. Hodes fits that bill.It really is harder than you would think to find an exceptional attorney, so I would definitely highly recommend Daniel Hodes to anyone looking for a Southern California injury attorney.”
Costs of a Burn Injury
No matter what their cause, injuries from burns can be extremely painful and their treatment can be expensive and overwhelming. Just the initial hospital costs and physician fees associated with treating a burn on one-third of a typical adult’s body can amount to more than $200,000. When preparing a burn injury lawsuit, attorneys will consider whether the plaintiff is entitled to recover:
- Initial hospitalization and physician fees
- Follow-up hospital costs
- Costs of reconstructive surgery
- Rehabilitation costs
- Compensation for lost earnings
- Compensation for pain and suffering
