Santa Maria Burn Injury Attorney
About Burn Injuries
Burn injuries are some of the most painful types of injuries. In addition, they often leave severe scarring that can last a lifetime. Some victims suffer from permanent disfigurement due to the burn injury and must endure the negative emotions, which stem from this condition. If you have suffered from any type of burn injury, please speak with a Santa Maria personal injury attorney from our firm immediately. We are dedicated to holding the responsible party accountable for their actions.
We have an extensive background in burn injury cases and are highly knowledgeable in California burn injury laws. In order to establish the liability of the case, your attorney must provide the insurance company with evidence. Insurance companies often take advantage of those who are not familiar with how they work or their own rights regarding their case. We will aggressively pursue our clients' compensation even if it means going to trial. You should not have to live with a serious burn injury without full compensation just because of another's negligent decision.

Severe burn injuries occur every single year in the thousands. Hundreds of victims will lose their lives to burn injuries annually. Burn injuries can occur anywhere and without warning. There are three categories of burn injury depending on the severity:
- First Degree Burn: burns that involve the top layer of the skin only. The skin will appear red and feel hot. These burns are not as serious as second or third degree burns, but can be extremely painful.
- Second Degree Burn: Second degree burns are severely painful. They involve the top layer of skin and the dermis, the skin's lower layer. Second-degree burns can injure the lymphatic vessels, nerves and sweat glands. The skin appears blistered, red, and puffy. It can also have areas that appear white.
- Third Degree Burns: Third degree burns are by far the most serious. The burn injury affects all layers of the skin and the scarring is usually extensive and permanent.
