After suffering a severe burn in an accident, you will likely require significant medical care. The care you receive, the expenses associated with it, and the changes to your lifestyle may all be compensated through filing a lawsuit against the person responsible for your accident and injuries.

To explore your options for monetary compensation, contact an experienced Spokane burn injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates.


Proving Your Case

Your Spokane burn injury lawyer will need to prove how the responsible party was at fault for your accident and burn injuries. This is the concept of negligence, and it is critical for receiving financial compensation.

Each case is different, and how you were burned will influence how we proceed. For example, if you were burned in a car accident, the process of gathering evidence will be different than if you were burned by a defective product.

Some of the evidence we will gather may include any of the following:

  • Police accident reports
  • Accident reports filed with the business where the burn occurred
  • Medical records from both the emergency room and your general physician
  • Known reports on hazardous products
  • Pictures and video
  • Witness statements
  • And more


Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

It is necessary to hire a Spokane burn injury lawyer within three years of becoming injured. If you fail to file suit prior to the statute of limitations expiring, your case could be thrown out without a verdict being rendered.

This would severely limit your ability to collect financial compensation and may prevent it completely.


Burn Injury Compensation

You could receive compensation for all of the medical bills associated with treating your burns and any other damages and expenses incurred by your accident. These medical expenses include what you have already accrued and the bills you are likely to incur in the future.

Hiring a Spokane burn injury lawyer is the best way to maximize your compensation because we can ensure that your settlement accounts for your other expenses as well:

  • Cost of hiring a caregiver for yourself or your children
  • Lost wages and income due to being unable to work
  • Travel expenses
  • Any changes to your home or vehicle necessitated by your burns
  • Expenses directly related to your current or long-term care
