Burn Injury Lawyer Oakland

Burn Injuries

Although burns are common injuries, they can be among the most painful and debilitating. Depending on the degree and location on the body, burns can be minor medical problems or life-threatening injuries, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The American Burn Association reports that in 2015, to date, an estimated 486,000 burn injuries have been medically treated in the U.S., with 40,000 people hospitalized for burn injuries, 30,000 of whom went to hospital burn centers.

At The Law Offices of Edward C. Casey Jr., we help people who have sustained serious burn injuries as result of an act of negligence. We take action to pursue the compensation they need to get their lives back on track. We provide high-quality representation to people who have been burned in a range of accidents, including:

“Burns can cause scarring, blistering, swelling, and in severe cases, shock or even death.”
  • Automobile accidents
  • Building fires
  • Defective product accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Hot liquid scalding accidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Explosions

The extent of medical treatment needed after burn injuries depends on what caused the burn, how much area it covers, and how deep the injury goes. There are 3 different types of burns:

  • First degree, which damage only the outer layer of skin;
  • Second degree, which damage both the outer layer and the layer of skin underneath; and
  • Third degree, which damage all the layers of skin and the tissue beneath the skin.

Third-degree burns require emergency medical treatment. Skin grafting is necessary after many serious burn injuries, and these injuries are subject to infection due to the damage they cause to the protective barrier of the skin.

Our practice is devoted to helping injured people in the San Francisco Bay area. With nearly 30 years of experience, our California burn injury lawyer has the skills, dedication, and resources to aggressively pursue the maximum compensation available under the law.
