Burn Injury Lawyer in Fresno, CA
If you have suffered a burn injury, depending upon the nature of the circumstances you could be eligible to receive financial compensation for your injuries.
A serious burn can be one of the most excruciating injuries a person can ever endure. A victim suffers not only immense physical pain but emotional and psychological scarring as well.
Burns can occur anytime your skin comes into contact with heat, chemicals, sunlight, radiation, electricity, flammable liquids or gases.
Unfortunately, many burn accidents happen because of someone else’s negligence.
