Burn injuries most commonly end with catastrophic and permanent injuries. Not only are they physical injuries but emotional scars remain. Burn victims have been known to suffer from permanent disfigurement and PTSD. a burn injury is not quickly healed, it can take years to heal and the scars may always remain. On top of all of this, victims also have to consider how they are going to pay for the treatment. This places the victim in even a bigger emotional hole by becoming financially burdened due to an injury.
My name is J. Jeffrey Herman and I am an Oxnard burn injury attorney. For more than 30 years, I have successfully represented accident victims throughout Southern California and helped them 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 you think of a burn injury, your mind immediately goes to: FIRE. But did you know more than 75 percent of burn injuries in California are caused by scalding hot water or steam? Other less common burn injuries are caused by electrocution or exposure to chemicals, they are often more severe leaving life changing injuries in their wake. Many are the result of defective products, such as water heaters or various electrical appliances. In addition to the dangers at home, burn injuries can happen in the workplace, including improperly labeled chemicals and exposure to improperly guarded electrical lines. These may sound uncommon but they actually aren’t. Burn injuries caused at work have an added element to them in the legal word especially if it was caused by a defective product.
