Why should I trust Bressman Law to handle my burn injury case?
Burn injuries are fairly common in the United States and they can have grave consequences. According to the American Burn Association, nearly 500,000 Americans suffered burn injuries in 2016. As many as 40,000 of those injured required hospitalization.
As anyone who has experienced even a short hospitalization knows, there is no such thing as an inexpensive hospital stay. The costs pile on quickly. When you add time away from work and resulting lost wages to those expenses, your burn injury can create an oppressive financial burden in no time.
You deserve compensation for your injuries, but to win them, you need the most skilled attorney on your side. Our attorneys have the knowledge, experience, and resources to pursue your case relentlessly and get you all the money you deserve.
How can a lawyer help me win compensation after a burn injury?
Winning a burn injury claim requires several steps. The first is to identify all parties that might be responsible. Sometimes, these are not obvious. Suppose you suffered severe burns at home while cooking by yourself. You might think the injury was your own fault or nobody’s fault at all.
But are you sure the cooking appliances in your home were free from defects? What about your smoke detector? Was it functioning properly? If so, the manufacturer of these and other products may be responsible for your injuries. These are the kinds of questions our skilled lawyers can answer with a thorough investigation.
Once we have identified the responsible parties, we must prove two things:
- You indeed suffered a burn injury; and
- The other party caused or contributed to your injury.
This is where our legal expertise comes into play. Chances are, the other party is not going to readily admit responsibility. If the responsible party is a big corporation, it undoubtedly has the financial resources to employ its own team of skilled lawyers who will argue against the company’s liability in your accident.
Then you have insurance companies, which are notorious for doing everything possible to deny claims or pay out less than they should. These entities also have highly paid teams of experts whose sole job function is to minimize payouts. They have no qualms about intimidating you into accepting much less than you deserve. Our lawyers work with insurance companies directly to protect our clients from these tactics.
It can be difficult to impossible to face these giants on your own. But our attorneys do it every day. We know how to win personal injury cases. We do not get paid until we recover money for you, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by hiring our skilled attorneys to fight your burn injury case.
Does it matter what caused my burn injury?
If your accident occurred because of someone else’s negligence, we can fight for compensation, no matter what caused your burns. We have experience with all types of burn injury cases, including:
- Vehicle collisions;
- Apartment fires;
- Workplace accidents;
- Tractor-trailer crashes;
- Tanker explosions;
- Defective products;
- Locked or blocked fire escapes;
- Electrical cord fires;
- Scalding water; and
- Electric shock.
We can use of accident reconstruction, expert witness testimony, and professional investigators to build a bullet-proof case against the responsible party or parties, no matter the cause or circumstances of your accident.
If the at-fault party refuses to agree to a fair out-of-court settlement that provides you with the compensation you deserve, we will take your case all the way to a jury trial.
