If you have questions regarding your rights or are seeking legal counsel, please call us at (530) 413-0245.

Damages and Eligibility

Burn injury victims may be able to file for a variety of damages. Each case is unique and a successful recovery is dependent on first establishing liability, but typically, victims of burn injury may be eligible to file for damages relating to medical expenses, including future, injury-related medical expenses; plastic surgery and reconstruction expenses; loss of wages, including full or partial loss of future income related to the burn injury; and pain and suffering, both physical and psychological. If the burn injuries are such that the victim will require a lifetime of care, we will take this into account when we file a claim for compensation.

If a loved one has died as a result of his or her burn injuries, please accept our condolences - we are truly sorry for your loss. We can help you file a wrongful death claim on the decedent's behalf. In wrongful death litigation, the spouse, children, dependents, or other individuals related to the victim can file suit for damages, including medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, and emotional pain and suffering.

Establishing Liability

There are a variety of factors that can lead to a burn injury; the cause of the burn injury will dictate which party or parties can be held liable. The burn injury lawyers at our Chico, Roseville, and Sacramento offices work with experts in the fields of forensics, engineering, medicine, and plastic surgery to both determine fault and evaluate appropriate compensation. Common causes and injury include:

  • Chemical Burns
  • Electrical Burns
  • Defective Products
  • Flammable Liquids
  • Flammable Clothing
  • Gas Explosions and Fires
  • Scalding Accidents
  • Industrial Accidents
  • Motor Vehicle Fires
  • Radiation Burns
  • Water Heater Fires
  • Work-related Accidents

Because of the many different types of burn injuries that can occur, burn injury litigation is equally diverse. A burn injury claim may also involve product liability, premises liability, and workers' compensation. Rest assured, we will explore all avenues of compensation to maximize your recovery. At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, we are committed to doing the right thing by our clients.

Victims' Rights

If you've suffered a disfiguring burn injury because of another party's negligence, you have rights. Among those is the right to just and fair compensation. Because of the impact such an injury has on a person's quality of life, a victim can receive compensation for more than just quantitative damages. Physical and psychological pain and suffering are impossible to quantify, but we can ensure that such damages are considered when weighing a settlement or pursuing a verdict. If we can show that the defendant acted in a reckless or woefully negligent manner, we may also be able to file for punitive damages to punish the defendant.

To enhance our clients' quality of life, our Northern California personal injury attorneys also work with plastic surgeons and a network of board-certified doctors so that we can provide them with reconstructive services. Should you be unable to pay for medical expenses, our doctors will advance fees until after a verdict or settlement has been reached. Our professional connections make this possible, and makes us unique amongst other law firms.
