Burn Injuries and Children
As parents‚ we do our utmost to keep our children safe from harm. While nearly an impossible task‚ we’ll do just about anything to make it happen. But‚ sometimes accidents are unavoidable. Children after all‚ will be children. Getting scraped‚ bruised and bumped comes with the territory. But what happens when your child is burned? And what if the burn is caused by someone’s wrongdoing?
Then it may be time to consider taking legal action against the at-fault individual or company. Of course‚ you may be wondering where to even start. After all‚ the damage has already been done. Your son or daughter is in pain and could quite possibly spend a lifetime dealing with their injury. What good will legal action do in light of such trauma? Unfortunately‚ even the most successful settlement can’t undo the past.
Compensation gained from a San Diego personal injury claim could help you‚ and your family‚ overcome the huge hospital expenses that come with burn injuries. Those immediate financial burdens that come with these injuries can be helped with proper legal action.

What Compensation is Available for My Child?
What your case is worth depends on the types of burns your child endured and the manner of negligence involved. Did the accident happen at home with a defective child’s product? Was the accident the result of a negligent property owner? Or‚ were you in your car when a fire began? Each one of these scenarios can offer a wide variety of possible outcomes.
Like most personal injury claims‚ there are several categories that damages typically fall into. In terms of burn injuries‚ a great deal of your potential awards will be focused on physical recovery. Items such as hospital bills‚ burn center fees‚ doctor’s expenses‚ and other therapeutic services will be accounted for. On top of that‚ because of the sheer pain that is involved with burn injuries‚ you would be able to claim pain and suffering‚ along with a variety of other costs outside of the standard economic damages.
