No one ever plans on suffering a burn injury, but when it happens, it takes Santa Monica residents by surprise. Not only is the shock of getting into a serious accident difficult to deal with, but also burn injuries are some of the most painful and dangerous that exist. Indeed, the risk of infection, catastrophic disfigurement, and never-ending pain is real — and many burn victims have to deal with this reality for the rest of their lives following such an accident.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, we help burn victims seek justice and restitution for their injuries in civil court. When we take on your case, we will use all of our combined experience and knowledge of the law to represent you in your claim. Depending on the nature of the case, your injuries and damages may warrant a small amount of recovery under $10,000 or in severe cases, multimillion-dollar verdicts may be possible. Still, no guarantees can be made in the pursuit of a burn injury case, and sometimes, a claim lacks sufficient merit to bring any kind of recovery.
At our firm, the most common burn injury cases involve hot liquid burns, burns from fires and hot objects, and chemical burns. We have also seen cases involving car accident explosions and car accident fires, and electrical burns from defective appliances and other types of devices.
There is a certain amount of risk in bringing forward any kind of personal injury case. Fortunately, most victims of accidents with viable claims for damages in Santa Monica can seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney to represent them on a contingency fee bases. What that means is that the plaintiff will not be on the hook for any out of pocket expenses unless his or her attorney makes a monetary recovery on his or her behalf.
