A skilled burn injury attorney needs to have a strong grasp of defective product law, premise liability law, worker’s compensation law and construction law.
That attorney also needs a thorough knowledge of the distinctive injuries associated with different types of burns – such as electrocution burns and scald burns – and the treatment methods at the two dedicated burn centers in Phoenix and one in Tucson.
Typical symptoms of a burn injury include, but are not limited to:
- peeling skin
- red skin
- white or charred skin
Pain, however, is not an indicator of the severity of a burn. Some of the most serious burns can be painless, as they char and burn through nerves and pain receptors. Signs of shock are pale and clammy skin, weakness, bluish lips and fingernails, and a decrease in alertness.
When handling a burn injury case, the attorney needs to be well funded, in order to retain fire forensics experts, construction experts, site investigators, chemical engineers and/or product safety experts and make prompt inspection of what happened.
IT IS CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT TO PRESERVE ANY PRODUCT WHICH MAY HAVE CAUSED A BURN INJURY, AFTER THE ACCIDENT.
A qualified Arizona burn injury attorney must also have personal relationships with experts ranging from chemical engineers, to plastic surgeons, to commercial plumbers, in order to put together the often complicated burn injury case.
Serious burn injury cases often involve large sums of money and so defendants will often fight hard. A burn injury attorney needs to be able to put the whole case together, through trial and appeal if necessary.
