Who Is Liable For My Burn Injuries?
It depends on the circumstances involved. Personal injury cases are fact-specific, and they require in-depth investigations to determine fault and liability, and gather needed evidence to support a claim.
At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, we leverage the insight of a team that includes investigators, detectives, and support staff with extensive experience and specialized backgrounds. By taking a collaborative approach, we help clients determine who can be held liable for their losses – be it a negligent property owner, product manufacturer, hospital or a third-party contractor on a dangerous worksite.
As attorneys skilled in high-stakes claims, we can also assess available insurance coverage from any and all potential defendants, and determine the most effective approach to litigating your case. In some cases, this means holding multiple at-fault parties accountable.
Do I Need An Attorney For My Burn Injury Lawsuit?
There’s no requirement that you retain legal representation in any personal injury action, but resolving a case on your own can be an immense task – especially if your loved one is still treating and recovering.
From the need to conduct investigations, consult experts, and collaborate with medical professionals to meeting the burden of proof, leveraging evidence to negotiate a settlement, or litigating a case at trial, victims face very difficult legal battles when it comes to recovering their damages. In cases involving serious injuries like burns, the elevated stakes of a claim, and larger potential payouts, can make defendants and insurers keen on raising disputes and defenses in order to protect their bottom line.
By working with Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, you gain the support of highly skilled trial lawyers who’ve recovered over $1 billion in compensation for victims and families. Backed by extensive resources and a multi-disciplinary team, we’re equipped to take on the most powerful corporations in the world.
