Los Angeles Catastrophic Burn Injury Lawyers

Helping You Pursue Compensation for Injuries

Serious burn damage can cause catastrophic injuries that require lifelong treatment. The lives of both the victims and their families are impacted by high medical costs, years of rehabilitation, and many other complications.

At Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, we understand that any major injury or accident can be very serious. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a fire, explosion, shock, and exposure to dangerous radiation or chemicals, you need to consult our Los Angeles burn injury attorneys as soon as possible.

Severe Burns May Result in Lifelong Injury

Victims of serious burn injuries suffer some of the most painful symptoms imaginable. Many have to live the rest of their lives with permanent scars and physical disabilities. Oftentimes, victims will suffer a lifetime of emotional and psychological traumas that affect their day-to-day activities and opportunities.

The victims of catastrophic burn injuries may struggle for the rest of their lives with:

  • Loss of mobility
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Brain damage
  • Lung damage
  • Muscle damage

Of course, no two cases are the same, but many victims require long-term or lifelong medical assistance. Some may lose their ability to live independently, and many are unable to continue earning an income. If you have been seriously injured, or if a loved one was killed as a result of a burn-related injury, our compassionate and understanding Los Angeles catastrophic burn injury attorneys can help you.

What Kind of Liability Exists in Burn Injury Cases?

When it comes to liability, it typically depends on if negligence was involved and who may be held financially accountable for the damages sustained.

  • Workplace accidents: Explosions and toxic chemicals on a job site can cause burn injuries. Employers who fail to maintain a safe worksite may be held liable, or even a manufacturer of defective machinery.
  • Defective products/auto parts can explode and cause severe injuries to consumers. The designer, manufacturer, or retailer of the product may be liable.
  • Faulty wiring: Many house fires are caused by faulty wiring. If an electrician did subpar work or a landlord knew about a problem and failed to fix it, they may be liable.
For anyone who has sustained a serious injury, recognizing who may be responsible is important. This gives you the opportunity to pursue legal action with confidence knowing you’re seeking justice and compensation from someone who was reckless in their actions to keep you safe.
