I have been seriously burned in an automobile fire in Los Angeles. What are my legal options?

I am so sorry to hear about your burn injuries. Burns can be very traumatic. They leave both physical and emotional scars that can impact the lives of the victims forever. If your burn has been the result of an accident which was caused by another driver’s negligence, or because of the poor manufacture or design of an automobile, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.

Burns are some of the most painful injuries a person can incur because the skin’s surface contains such a high density of nerves. With burns that are an advanced stage, the victim may experience very painful treatments such as skin grafts that require surgery. Cosmetic surgery may also be necessary in order to minimize the appearance of the burns.

If you have been burned in an automobile accident, you should speak with an attorney. Normally, insurance companies will resist paying the maximum amount to which you are entitled. An attorney can help you fight for your legal rights. This normally involves filing a lawsuit, building a strong case, entering into settlement negotiations, and possibly taking the case to trial if you cannot reach an agreeable settlement.
