Port Salerno Burn Injury

Port Salerno Burn Injury

Sustaining a burn injury can be utterly devastating. Severe burns may require lengthy hospital stays, multiple reconstructive surgeries, and extensive rehabilitation.

There are dozens of different accident scenarios that can cause burns, but they all have one element in common; they’re virtually all preventable. Unfortunately, knowing that an injury was caused by another person’s negligence only adds to the depression and frustration that burn victims must overcome.

If you suffered a burn because of someone else’s carelessness or intentional act, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. To determine the most strategic way to proceed with your case, contact Donaldson & Weston.

We are dedicated to providing the legal advice you need and the personal attention and unparalleled service you deserve. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our compassionate personal injury lawyers in Port Salerno.

Questions Your Burn Injury Attorney Might Ask During the Initial Consultation

To ensure your case gets off to a strong start, it’s a good idea to prepare for the initial consultation. Besides bringing any evidence you have gathered, you should also consider your answers to the questions that your attorney is likely to ask such as:

  • What were you doing right before the accident occurred? Is there a chance the opposing party will argue you are partially liable?
  • Were you conscious after the accident? If so, what did you do immediately after?
  • Did you sustain any other injuries besides burns?
  • How soon after the incident did you receive medical care?
  • Have you had any reconstructive surgery since the accident?
  • What is your prognosis? Do doctors anticipate any permanent disabilities?
  • What are your rehabilitation needs? For example, are you attending physical therapy regularly?
  • How long were you hospitalized after the accident?
  • Since being released from the hospital, how have the burns affected your everyday life?
  • Have you returned to work yet? If not, do doctors anticipate that you will ever return?
  • How have the injuries impacted your self-confidence? Do you feel as though you have a lower quality of life now?
  • How have the injuries impacted your loved ones? Does anyone miss work in order to take care of you?
  • Did police arrive at the scene of the accident? If so, did they make any arrests or conduct any chemical tests?
  • Did anyone witness the incident that caused your burns? Did you get their contact information?
  • Have you had any correspondence with the opposing party?
  • Have you given any recorded statements to the insurance adjuster?
  • Are you active on social media? If so, have you posted anything about the accident or your burns online?

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
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, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
★★★★★
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.
