Injuries resulting from a fire or burn accident can be extensive and may leave victims with physical and psychological scarring, as well as overwhelming medical expenses.

Working With Insurance Companies
As a victim of a fire or burn accident, it is essential that you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to determine whether you are owed compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies are quick to minimize payment for burn injury accidents, and our attorneys will support you in knowing your rights so that you can begin working toward compensation and recovery.
Work Related Burn Injuries
As an employee who has suffered an on-the-job burn injury, you may have the option of filing a worker’s compensation claim for wage and medical compensation, although this option eliminates the possibility of taking further legal recourse against an employer for negligence. Worker’s compensation benefits are limited and may not cover the extent of your losses and damages, so you should seek the expertise of a personal injury attorney immediately to discuss your legal rights. The skilled attorneys at the California DAG Law Firm are experienced in dealing with worker’s compensation and third-party claims resulting from industrial, construction and chemical accidents.

- Scalding Water and Steam Accidents
Compensation for your Burn Injuries
If you or someone you love has suffered burn injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:
