Filing a Burn Injury Claim in Arizona
Burn injuries can range from relatively trivial to catastrophic or even deadly. Based on the extent of your burn injury, you might be eligible to collect financial compensation for damages such as:
- Current and anticipated medical bills/Rehabilitation
- Lost earnings during your recovery period
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Permanent scarring/Disfigurement
- Emotional trauma and physical pain
If the person liable for your burn injury behaved in an especially egregious manner, the court might also award you punitive damages.
You have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury suit in Arizona. After signing with a reputable Phoenix burn injury attorney, they will fully investigate your accident to determine liability. The first step will be to collect evidence that shows someone else’s actions lead to your injury.
After establishing the other party’s negligence, your attorney will then need to prove that the defendant violated the duty of care they owed you. This is shown by demonstrating that a reasonable person in the same situation would have acted differently and shown more care. Your attorney will also examine your medical records and file a claim for the maximum amount of damages you are entitled to for your injuries.
In many instances, all that is required to construct a strong lawsuit is a compelling claim verifying significant damages and the proficient legal representation of an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney from Saavedra Law Firm, PLC.
