Victims of fires and other burn injuries are often left with physical and psychological scars that leave them with overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, and life-changing pain and suffering. When someone else caused the burn injury because of their negligence — such as an apartment landlord failing to follow fire safety laws or an employer not following workplace safety regulations — the victim may be able to seek compensation for these and other losses.
Insurance adjusters, landlords, and others will work hard to minimize payouts to burn injury victims. That’s why if you or a loved one have suffered, it’s important that you contact an experienced fire and burn injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident. The attorney could help you hold the negligent party accountable for their actions and potentially get you the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Our burn injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan advocate for victims of negligent landlords, sometimes getting tenants millions of dollars in compensation and holding the landlords accountable for their actions. They have the experience and deep knowledge to help you navigate this complicated process. You can contact us free of charge to learn if you can recover compensation for physical pain, medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.
