Pursuing a Claim for Injuries Sustained in a Burn Accident
How a Burn Accident Case is Valued
Burns can happen during a variety of different types of accidents. It could be a chemical fire at work, a result of a car accident or other accident caused by the negligence of another. As burn victim Attorneys can explain, all negligence cases, regardless of type, require a showing that the alleged wrongdoer breached a legal duty to refrain from causing harm, thereby causing Injury. Negligence also requires a showing that an actual Injury was sustained. In burn cases, this is often the easiest to prove albeit devastating to live with. Case valuation for burn injuries can rise dramatically depending on the location and nature of the burn. Facial burns with permanent scarring may be valued more highly by insurance companies than lesser burns to parts of the body not normally seen.
What a Pasadena Burn Victim Attorney Can Do To Help Pursue an Injury Claim
First and foremost, a Personal Injury will review the facts of your case and help determine a realistic case valuation. This includes researching the law and the facts surrounding your accident and Injury to determine a settlement range when dealing with the insurance company. Your Attorney will then communicate and negotiate with the insurance company including helping you respond to document requests and providing witness statements. If no settlement is reached, your Attorney can discuss your next step which may be to file a lawsuit against the insured. If that happens, your Lawyer will prepare the complaint and other documents required for filing in court. Settlement may still be possible but your Lawyer will prepare for Trial. You’ll be kept informed during all Trial phases.
