Palm City Burn Injury

Palm City Burn InjuryFrom defective products to faulty wiring, there are countless ways to sustain serious burn injuries. Regardless of the cause of the accident, though, suffering a burn anywhere on your body can be excruciatingly painful.

Not only do burns pose the risk of life-threatening complications-both in their immediate aftermath and as they heal-but they can also cause permanent scarring and disfigurement. As a result, the emotional impact of sustaining a burn injury can be devastating.

If you suffered burn injuries due to another person's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for hospital bills, lost income, emotional distress, and other damages. Although filing a successful claim will not undo the trauma you have experienced, it may provide you with the funds needed to avoid serious debt and regain your financial footing.

To determine if you have grounds for a claim, contact Donaldson & Weston. We have assisted hundreds of accident victims and recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with a personal injury attorney in Palm City.

Tactics Insurance Adjusters use to Undervalue & Deny Claims

In most burn injury cases, claimants do not actually go up against the individuals responsible for their injuries. Instead, they go head to head with an insurance adjuster. Unfortunately, that means taking on an opponent who has the resources to fight each and every claim that comes their way.

At the end of the day, insurance providers are businesses like any other, so they will go to great lengths to boost their bottom line. That means minimizing the amount of money they have to pay out and denying claims whenever possible.

Here are just a few strategies the claims adjuster might use to protect the interests of the insurance company:

  • Offering an unfair payout that does not account for future damages and non-economic damages;
  • Prolonging the proceedings so the claimant incurs more debt and is more inclined to settle;
  • Misrepresenting recorded statements;
  • Contesting the existence or severity of an injury;
  • Accusing the claimant of being partially liable for the accident;
  • Accusing the claimant of failing to take reasonable steps to mitigate damages;
  • Misleading claimants regarding the total coverage available; and
  • Placing accident victims under surveillance during the proceedings.

Taking on the insurance company can feel like fighting an uphill battle, but with the help of a burn injury lawyer from Donaldson & Weston, you will be able to focus on your health while your case proceeds in good hands.

The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.

★★★★★
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
