Ventura County Burn Injury Lawyer
Not all injuries are the same. Catastrophic injuries can leave accident victims with permanent physical damage. Few are more devastating than burn injuries. Not only do they cause permanent disfigurement and physical pain, they can also result in a lifetime of emotional trauma. In addition to tremendous pain and suffering, burn injuries also require constant treatment and medical attention that can place accident victims in a tremendous financial burden. My name is J. Jeffrey Herman and I am a Ventura County burn injury attorney. For more than 30 years, I have successfully represented accident victims throughout Southern California recover the proper compensation needed to account for their medical bills, damages, lost wages along with their pain and suffering.
Types of Burn Injuries in California
When most people think of accidents that cause burn injuries, they immediately think of a fire. But did you know more than 75 percent of burn injuries in California are caused by scalding hot water or steam? Although catastrophic burn injuries caused by electrocution or exposure chemicals are less common, they are among the most severe. Many are the result of defective products, such as water heaters or various electrical appliances. In addition to the dangers at home, burn injuries often happen in the workplace, including improperly labeled chemicals and exposure to improperly guarded electrical lines.
