Our Oakdale Burn Injury Accident Lawyers Know That Burn Cases Are Particularly Complex

According to the American Burn Association, more than 450,000 burn injuries that require medical attention occur annually in the United States. Certainly, some of these are accidents that are no one’s fault. However, there are also many burn injury accidents where a negligent act causes the burn injury. As long as our team at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law can show that someone else was negligent in causing the accident, you have the right to seek damages.

Burn injury lawsuits can involve fires and smoke inhalation, where someone carelessly or purposefully started a fire. But they also can involve things like scalding accidents while working in a restaurant kitchen, chemical burns from an exposure at an industrial facility, or electrical burns from a defective product. Our investigation must figure out exactly what happened and who was at fault.

Burn Injuries Can Affect Your Life Forever

In some cases, your burn injury might never heal. You could have significant scarring, disfigurement, or vital organ damage related to the burns suffered in the preventable accident. When your life changes forever because of your injuries, you can trust that our team of lawyers for Oakdale burn injury accidents will seek a financial award that reflects the hardships you are now facing because of the accident.

Perhaps your injuries force you to stop doing some of your favorite activities. Maybe they prevent you from enjoying life like you did before the accident. Perhaps you cannot work in the same job you had before your injuries. We will seek damages for all of these items for you.

FAQs: Common Questions Clients Have for Our Burn Injury Lawyers in Oakdale

The majority of our clients are going through a personal injury lawsuit for the first time. Understandably, they have a lot of questions about the process. Here are some of the most common questions we receive. Our answers can show you how we may handle your case.

Do I Have a Time Limit For Winning a Burn Injury Claim?

You have a six-year window from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit related to the burns, according to Minnesota statute 541.05. This does not mean that we have to settle the case within six years. It just means we have to file a lawsuit within the time frame to let the defendant know that we are protecting your right to seek damages.

Do I Have to Hire an Oakdale Burn Injury Law Firm After My Burn Injury?

Nothing in Minnesota state law requires victims to hire legal representation to seek an award after a burn injury that was someone else’s fault. However, when you have a complex case that may result in a large settlement amount, the insurance company may not treat you fairly when you are representing yourself. By having our legal team on your side, we can protect your rights against the insurance company’s actions and seek the award amount you deserve.

How Long Will It Take to Win My Settlement Award?

Each case is a little different. Complex burn injury cases can take several months or years to settle. Straightforward cases with minor injuries can take a few months to conclude. You can trust our Oakdale burn injury lawyers to try to settle your case as quickly as possible, but we will not cut corners and speed things up at the expense of the amount of money you can win in your award.

Why Is the Insurance Company Asking Me So Many Questions?

Insurers often will interview you multiple times after the accident, repeatedly asking many of the same questions in an effort to see if you will change your story about how the accident occurred or about the severity of your burn injuries. If your story is not consistent, the insurer then may try to reduce the amount it offers to you.

Even though it’s unfair for insurance companies to ask you complicated questions about the accident at a time when you may be fatigued, in pain, or under the influence of multiple medications, they do it anyway. One of the most important services our Oakdale burn injury attorneys provide for you is that we take over all interactions with the insurer. You will not speak to the insurance company unless our team is present. This is an important step we take to make sure the insurance company treats you fairly.
