If you have suffered a burn injury, discuss your claim with a Los Angeles burn injury lawyer at Effres and Associates today.

Common Burn Injury Types and Causes

A person may suffer different types of burn injuries.

These are some of the more common types of burn injuries:

  • Burn injuries in a fire
  • Chemical burns
  • Scalding burns
  • Thermal burns
  • Radiation burns
  • Electrical burns

Categories of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries may be divided into first, second and third degree burns, depending on the type of damage that has occurred to the skin and tissue. In a first degree burn, the first layer of the skin is damaged. In a second degree burn, there is much deeper penetration of the skin, and deeper skin layers may be damaged. Third degree burns are the most serious type of burn injuries, and can include layers of skin and tissue under the skin.

Long-Term Effects: Scarring and Disability from Burns

Not only does a burn injury victim suffer extreme pain and trauma, but she may also expect to suffer disfigurement or scarring after the injury. Even when the burn injuries have healed, there may be scarring that leaves the skin with a bumpy appearance. Even cosmetic surgery may never completely restore the person’s appearance.

Legal Support for Burn Injury Victims

There are economic consequences of burn injuries. If your burns are on a noticeable part of the body, it may impact your ability to get a job, especially certain types of industries, such as marketing, public relations, media and other industries in which personal appearances are at a premium.

Your claim for compensation may include not only the short-term economic losses from your injuries, but also the long-term losses because of your lost income earning potential.

Our Clients' Success Stories

  • "I will most certainly come to you if & when I need an attorney."
    Dear Mr. Effres, I would like to express my deep appreciation for assisting me when I called you regarding the problem I had with a dental group I had been going to. Unfortunately my only solution will be small claims court. Here is a case where the dentist said he was qualified to do root canals and missed the canal and went into my gum even though he took 3 x-rays during the procedure, and very casually said, “sometimes things like this will happen.” I wish to thank you again for your advice and you can be assured I will most certainly come to you if & when I need an attorney. Your thoughtfulness meant a lot! by H. M.

  • "I really feel like it's his reputation as a trial lawyer that got us the deal."
    Two attorney firms dropped us before the 2 year deadline and we were panicking. My husband was badly hurt when a truck backed into him as he was walking by. Justin took us in and we really felt like we had someone on our side. I really feel like it's his reputation as a trial lawyer that got us the deal. I would absolutely recommend him!

  • "We will recommend you and your firm without reservation."
    Dear Steve, With our case now settled, we wanted to reach out to thank you, Justin and the entire team for your representation of our daughter. It was clear to us that your professionalism, expertise and advocacy of our family’s interests made the entire process run smoothly. We specifically appreciate how well you interacted with our daughter. After we hung up with you on speaker phone leaving the courthouse that last day she said “I like him” in a very childlike, affectionate tone. We also wanted you to know that our decision to settle did not come easily. In the end, we believe the decision was in our daughter’s best interest. We know you worked hard to prepare a strong case and do regret not having the opportunity to see that through. Lastly, on a personal note, we wanted to compliment you on Justin. He is a truly impressive young man; intelligent, polite and very good natured. Just a couple of comments Steve made in the days leading up to our daughter’s trial as we got to know Justin better. To our daughter; “You can tell a lot about a man by seeing how his children behave; Mr. Effres seems like a really good man.” To S: “If you have a son, he (Justin) is what you want him to be like; if you have a daughter, he’s the kind of guy you’d like her to end up with.” Anyway, I’m sure you don’t need to hear it from us, but you and your wife must be very proud of your sons. I hope this doesn’t sound hollow, because it is most definitely not, but please keep in touch and let us know if there is ever anything we can do for you. If we ever come across a friend who is in need of representation, we will recommend you and your firm without reservation. Thanks again and best wishes by S, S, and M
