Burns Range in Severity, but They’re All Dangerous
The burn injury attorneys at Ochoa & Calderón will help you and your family recover monetary compensation after your burn-inducing accident. We’re familiar with the causes and complications of burn injuries. Although burns can range in severity, even minor burns can cause serious pain and require treatment.
The medical community ranks burns from “first” to “fourth” degree, depending upon the nature and severity of the burn. Anything beyond first-degree means the burn affects more than just the outer layer of skin and can cause lasting damage. Third- and fourth-degree burns can cut even deeper, affecting the tendons, nerves, bones, or muscles underneath the skin. These more severe burns can lead to permanent loss of function, requiring skin grafts, surgeries, and even amputation. Fourth-degree burns can be life-threatening.
Whatever the severity of your burn, talk to a seasoned burn accident lawyer to discuss your situation, your claims, and your possible recovery. Our Southern California injury law firm has decades of combined experience helping burn victims recover the compensation they deserve.
Damages Available After a Burn Injury
Burns are among the most painful, debilitating, and shocking injuries. If you’ve suffered a serious burn, or if your child, spouse, or another loved one has been burned and is unable to represent themselves, you may be eligible to recover significant damages. A burn injury attorney at Ochoa & Calderón can review your case to help you seek the maximum recovery available for your claims.
Victims suffering from burn injuries after an accident can seek a wide range of damages. Victims are entitled to economic damages caused by the accident, including recovery of past and future anticipated medical costs, lost income during recovery time, loss of future earning capacity, and any property damage.
Additionally, you can seek recovery for your “non-economic” damages. Non-economic damages include harms that are not directly financial but are no less real. Non-economic damages that may be available after a burn injury include compensation for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Mobility limitations
- Temporary or permanent loss of bodily functions
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Loss of companionship
