Burn Injury Lawyers in Encino, CA
Aggressively Representing Clients in Los Angeles County & California
Burns are among the most painful injuries that you can suffer. Most people
fail to realize that your skin is the largest organ in your body with
billions of neuron receptors. These receptors communicate with neighboring
cells and thus damage to the skin can result in devastating, life-altering,
and debilitating consequences. In the worst cases, burns can lead to death.
These injuries call for multiple surgeries, skin grafts, heavy medications
for pain, and can result in life-threatening infections. They require
specific treatments that are often only available at medical burn centers.
Depending on how deep the burns impinge into the layers of skin, they
can affect nerves, underlying tissue, and even bone.
Burn injuries can occur in a wide range of scenarios. Where negligence
or some other type of wrongdoing has led to these injuries, you may be
entitled to compensatory damages from the party or parties responsible. At
Vahdat & Associates, where we focus entirely on
personal injury law, we can investigate and discover all those parties who may have contributed
to your injuries. After determining fault, we can create a compelling
case in pursuing the financial damages you need and deserve in the wake

Burn Injuries Consequences & Claims
According to the American Burn Association, 1.1 million burn injuries occur
annually in the United States. Approximately 45,000 of these injuries
These injuries can be caused by the negligence, carelessness, or the deliberate
actions of others in the following ways:
These injuries generally call for extensive medical treatment and plastic
surgery. Even with such treatment, victims can be left with permanent
scarring and disfigurement. This permanent result of a burn injury can
cause psychological and social damage that the victim may never overcome.
It can also result in the person never being able to work again.
Individuals can be burned at restaurants, in tanning salons, hot tubs,
and through chemical burns derived from such products as battery acid,
metal cleaners, drain cleaners, and more. Chemical burns can result in
such symptoms as fainting, dizziness, a sudden drop in blood pressure,
and even cardiac arrest.
In all burn injuries caused by negligence, you must demonstrate the other
party owed you a reasonable duty of care in ensuring your safety. That
duty of care must have been breached which led to the incident of your
being burned and being entitled to financial damages. This can be a difficult
task that calls for a legal professional who understands how to put together
a strong case based on documented evidence.
For example, you may have suffered severe burns from a negligent property
owner who engaged in illegal fireworks at a social gathering you attended.
You may not have been warned that the fireworks would be used. The property
owner may then be found to be at fault for causing your injuries.
Potential Damages in a Burn Injury Case
You may be entitled to the economic damages of all of your medical expenses
and any anticipated medical costs in the future, your lost income or wages,
and out-of-pocket expenses. You may also be entitled to non-economic damages

of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. At

compensation for our clients.
