Can a Burn Injury Lawyer Help Me?
Receiving a burn injury can be an extremely painful and stressful incident to cope with. Often, when you receive a physical injury such as a terrible burn on your body, the cause of your injury was the result of the negligence of another person, your employer, or from equipment that should have been designed to keep you safe.
A burn injury lawyer can help you get compensated for your injuries in court by finding those responsible for your injury and holding them accountable where they have failed to honor their duty to keep you safe from harm. Whether you were injured at work, school, or at another person’s home, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

For Which Types of Bills Can I Recover Money?
A burn injury can result in all types of unexpected costs. Legally, as a burn victim suffering from the wrongdoing of another, you are entitled to receive compensation for all reasonably foreseeable expenses that resulted from the defendant’s wrongful conduct. This can include costs you incurred from:
- your hospital stay
- physical therapy and psychotherapy
- the pain and suffering you experienced
- past, current, and ongoing medical treatments
- lost wages due to absence from work
- lost wages due to the inability to work in the future
If money you have paid in the past or might have to pay in the future was foreseeable and causally connected to the defendant’s wrongdoing, you are legally entitled to be compensated from the defendant for those bills and costs.
Is it Too Late to Recover for Burn Injuries?
In a personal injury action, you only have a limited time to seek recovery for the injuries you received.
The law recognizes it would be unfair to allow anyone to bring a lawsuit against another if too much time has lapsed since the injury. This is known as the statute of limitations, which varies in length between different states and for different causes of action.
In California, the statute of limitations for a burn injury is usually two years from the date of your injury. However, in the case where the wrongdoer was a medical professional, the statute of limitations is one year.
