Burn Injuries

Riverside Burn Injury Lawyer

Award-Winning Injury Representation in the Inland Empire

Injuries caused by burns are often very severe and can even be life-threatening. Many of these injuries are caused by negligence or carelessness on the part of a third party—for example, if the burn injury occurred in a car accident or workplace accident. Recovering may require long-term rehabilitation and medical care. Many burn injuries are so severe that the victim never fully recovers.

What Should I Do After a Burn Injury?

If you believe that your injury was caused or contributed to by a third party’s negligence or recklessness, the proper course of action after obtaining the medical care necessary is to speak with an Inland Empire burn injury lawyer who can advise you as to your rights. Our team at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP works on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no fees charged unless you win.

Compensation After a Burn Injury

You could be entitled to various forms of compensation and, potentially, punitive damages, depending on the various factors and particulars surrounding your case. An attorney can help you understand these options.

Some types of compensation you might be entitled to include:

  • Medical expenses, past and projected
  • Costs for rehabilitation and therapy
  • Out of pocket expenses related to your injury
  • Missed time at work
  • Loss of ability to earn income
  • Scarring / disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional damage
