Los Angeles Burn Injury Lawyer

Aggressive representation for burn injury victims in California

The effects of a serious burn injury can be both physically and emotionally devastating due to the disfiguring of the skin. Even with today’s medical advances in wound treatment, therapy, and plastic surgery, a burn victim is often left with permanent physical and emotional scarring. Although it can be a traumatic experience to survive a residential fire, chemical explosion, gas leak, electrical burn, or natural fire, there is help available to assist you in the recovery process. The Los Angeles burn injury lawyers of Gracia & Phan offer support, legal assistance, and professionalism for you and your family.

Some of the most commonly asked car accident questions:

First degree burns

These are often the least serious, as they only damage the very top layer of skin. First-degree burns can usually be treated at home.

Second degree burns

Second degree burns damage both the top layer of skin and the layer underneath. They are more serious and may require medical attention. Second degree burns often present with blisters and can leave scars.

Third degree burns

These are the most serious, as they damage the deepest layers of skin and tissue. Third degree burns can lead to nerve damage and may require skin grafts.

WHAT TO DO AFTER SUFFERING A BAD BURN INJURY IN CALIFORNIA

A minor burn injury may not be a reason to file a claim against a defendant, even if someone else caused the burns. Minor damage with small medical bills may not be enough to make the time, money, and effort of a claim worthwhile. If you suffered serious or catastrophic burns, however, filing a claim could be the best way to obtain compensation for your major losses. Taking the correct steps after suffering a burn injury may be imperative in your case.

How are burn injuries caused?

According to the American Burn Association, about 3,400 people die each year from fires, burns or smoke inhalation, and about 40,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized every year for burn-related injuries.

Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:

  • HOUSE FIRES
  • ELECTRICAL FIRES
  • VEHICLE FIRES
  • CHEMICAL EXPOSURE
  • RADIATION EXPOSURE
  • DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS
  • GRILLS AND BARBEQUES
  • SPACE HEATERS
  • FIREWORKS
  • WORKSITE ACCIDENTS
  • SCALDING DRINKS/HIGH-TEMPERATURE FOODS

Degrees of burns

Signs and symptoms of a burn injury vary based on the degree of the burn. The most common signs of a burn injury include swelling, blistering and scarring. In the worst cases, death can result. Burn injuries also commonly lead to infections because of the damage done to the top protective layers of skin.

Just as signs and symptoms vary based on the degree of the burn, so too, do treatment options for varying types of burns. For mild burns, over-the-counter creams can be used to treat any pain, swelling and potential infections. For more severe burns, cleaning and skin grafting may be required. These can be lengthy, painful and expensive processes.
