We Help Burn Injury Victims In Palm Springs
Few injuries are more painful than severe burns. Beyond the physical torment of the burn itself and the treatment and rehab process, the disability and disfigurement take a psychological toll. It is important to work with an attorney who knows how to document a burn injury case to maximize the compensation.
The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser provides experienced representation and compassionate support to burn victims and their families. We take extra care to ensure that clients are fully compensated for the lifelong impact of an injury caused by the careless or reckless actions of others.
Located in Palm Springs, California, our law firm offers a free consultation to accident victims in the Coachella Valley, Palm Desert, Cathedral City, the High Desert and throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
How Does Our Firm Assist Burn Victims?
We represent people who have suffered severe burns or road rash in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, chemical burns, fires or explosions. Michael Kaiser formerly worked as a lawyer for the insurance industry. He knows what kind of evidence is needed to establish liability of the negligent party and, just as importantly, how to portray the injury and its medical, financial and personal effect on the victim and family.
For example, photographic documentation from early on is important for illustrating the extent of injury and the grueling recovery. We follow clients through intensive care, skin graft surgery, physical therapy, plastic surgery and reintegration into life and society. By working with doctors, physical therapists, vocational specialists, economists and life care planners, we can fully evaluate the case for damages, including:
- Weeks or months in the hospital
- Ongoing nursing care or home care
- Future reconstructive or cosmetic surgery
- Modifications to the home
- Pain medications
- Physical and psychological therapy
- Permanent nerve damage or disability
Personalized Service Through A Long Ordeal
We know that severe burn injuries are hard on victims and their families. Our goal is to take on the legal worries so that clients can attend to healing and regaining some semblance of normal life. We are prepared to take cases to trial, but we have been very successful with our philosophy of presenting the insurance company with a comprehensive settlement demand early in the process. When liability is clear, insurers are willing to settle these cases out of court.
We will keep you informed and involved throughout the litigation process, including settlement offers, any problems that arise or the decision to go to trial.
