San Francisco Burn Injury Lawyer
People who are severely burned are never the same. Serious burns leave an individual with scars and disfigurement, nerve pain and serious psychological damage. These types of burns can either be very deep, cover large portions of the body, or both. The deeper and more extensive the burn, the harder it is to treat. Burn victims sometimes die after lingering in terrible pain for days or weeks. When the burn or death was the result of negligence or wrongdoing, victims need answers about their options; for immediate help from a San Francisco burn injury lawyer, call or schedule a free consultation.
At the law firm of Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C., our attorneys help burn victims and their families obtain the compensation they need and deserve. Individuals who have suffered severe burns almost always need many months and years of medical treatment, including skin grafts, plastic surgery and scar revisions.
Patients often require significant psychological treatment to help them deal with their changed appearance. In particular, children are often in need of counseling services as they struggle to fit in despite their differences. Our legal team helps clients and their families obtain the resources they need to take care of themselves.
