Palm Springs Burn Injury Attorney

Seek Justice for Burn Injuries in California 

Burn injuries are among the most severe and life-altering of all injuries. The pain, scarring, and disfigurement that accompany severe burns can completely change the lives of burn victims. In addition to the physical pain and suffering, burn victims often experience psychological trauma as well. In some cases, burn injuries can even be fatal.

Fortunately, the state of California has enacted laws that allow burn victims to recover compensation for their injuries through a personal injury lawsuit. Under California law, burn injuries are considered to be catastrophic injuries. As such, you may be entitled to significant compensation if a loved one has died as a result of a burn injury or if you have suffered burn injuries.

Understanding the Impact of Burn Injuries

A burn injury occurs when someone sustains an injury due to exposure to extreme heat or flames. The severity and extent of a burn injury is often determined by the degree of exposure to the heat source. The most severe burns are referred to as third-degree burns, which occur when the skin is completely destroyed. Third-degree burns are the most likely to result in death.

There are three main categories of burns:

  • First-degree burns are the least severe and involve only the outer layer of the skin. These burns usually result in pain, redness, and slight swelling. They can typically be treated at home and do not require medical attention.
  • Second-degree burns affect the outer layer of the skin and the layer of tissue just beneath it. These burns are more severe than first-degree burns and may result in pain, swelling, and blisters.
  • Third-degree burns are the most severe burns and are typically fatal. These burns affect all layers of the skin and can go all the way down to the muscle and bone. They can result in severe scarring, disfigurement, and even death.
