How Do I Know If I Have a Burn Injury Case?
Essentially, the best way to tell if you have a burn injury case is if your burns were caused by another party’s negligence, recklessness, or malice.
For example, many of Belal’s burn injury victims were in vehicular accidents where the other party drove negligently. Many others occur because someone didn’t follow a proper safety protocol, a product was defective, etc., and that directly led to the burn injury.
Unfortunately, many believe something like: “Well, I was cooking at home and got burned, so I don’t have a case.” Or, alternatively, they may think: “I used this product and it burned me, so that must be my fault.” That’s not necessarily the case. Another party’s negligence may be responsible for your burn injuries.
For example, maybe there was a manufacturing flaw with your stove, the design of your appliances, and so forth, which led to your injury. So many have a strong case that may not necessarily realize it.
This is just one more reason it’s so important to reach out to an experienced burn injury attorney. During your free case evaluation, Belal can go over your case with you in detail, letting you know all of the parties that may be responsible. Then, he’ll represent you aggressively, helping you to receive everything that you deserve.
What Compensation Can I Receive for My Burn Injury?
For a burn injury in California, you can recover economic and non-economic compensation. Burn injuries can lead to enormous medical costs. Economic compensation can cover those. Medications, doctor’s visits, surgery, rehabilitation, therapy, and similar costs – they can be handled by economic compensation.
After a burn injury, it’s entirely possible that you will have to miss work. If so, you can recover lost wages, money that you would have made had you been able to work. Should you not be able to return to work in the future, you can recover compensation for that as well.
A burn injury can lead to pain and suffering. It can take a terrible toll on your mental health, your quality of life, and so much more. You deserve to be compensated for that as well. That’s non-economic compensation. Non-economic compensation can provide you with the money you deserve for all that you’ve been through. In some cases, clients like you may receive punitive damages as well.
When you sit down with Belal and go over your case, he’ll let you know exactly what damages you can claim for your case as well as how he’ll go about getting them.
What are Common Types of Burn Injuries?
If you’ve been injured, whether it was in an accident or any other way, it’s important to receive medical attention. Hopefully, you did not suffer an injury. Yet, it’s entirely possible that you aren’t aware of the extent of your injuries (even burns) due to being in shock, running on adrenaline, etc.
The treatment you receive for your burns depends on many factors, most primarily on the degree of your burn. Those include:
First Degree: Burns that are limited to just the outer layer of your skin, these are the least serious. That said, they could still cause you great pain, thus necessitating pills for the pain, and so forth. You may very well have a case even if you suffer a First Degree burn.
Second Degree: Burns that result in swelling, pain, and even blistering, these damage your epidermis and your dermis (outer and lower layers of skin) respectively. These burns can take a long time to heal.
Third Degree: Serious burn injuries, these damage your epidermis and your dermis as well as deeper tissue. Your skin may appear charred and blackened. Reconstructive/plastic surgeries, skin grafts, and possibly even amputation, are just some treatments for third-degree burns. These burns can require treatment that lasts for years.
If your burn was caused due to someone else’s actions, you deserve to be compensated.
What Do I Do If I Suffer a Burn Injury at Work?
In addition to handling burn injury victim cases, Belal has also handled so many cases involving workers’ compensation. If you were injured while doing your job in California, you are eligible for workers’ compensation. Belal can help you to recover the workers compensation you deserve, even if your initial workers compensation claim was denied.
If you do suffer a burn injury at work, you don’t have to prove that your employer was negligent, that your injury was not your fault, etc.
That said, some who suffer at-work burn injuries may be eligible to file a personal injury claim as well.
For example, you may be eligible if your burn injury at work was caused by a party other than your employer. You could also be eligible if your employer tried to conceal why your burn injury happened, or if someone burned you intentionally, maliciously, and so forth.
There are many factors that could go into a burn injury. Reaching out to Belal Hamideh can uncover the truth and then use it to strengthen your case.
What Causes Burn Injuries?
Fires are one of the most common causes of burn injuries but they’re far from the only cause. Chemicals can cause serious burn injuries, as can electrical currents, radiation, or even just objects that are hot. Burn injury victims have received enormous settlements for being burned by liquids, by steam, or even by tanning beds and more.
Moreover, you can even be seriously injured just by smoke. You may deserve compensation if you suffer smoke inhalation injuries.
