San Jose Burn Injury Lawyers
Did You Survive A Burn Injury? Get Legal Help
Burn injuries, the time it takes to heal, and living with the aftermath can wreak havoc on the lives of victims. When the carelessness or negligence of a person or organization causes burn injuries, people are left devastated. You may be able to recover the money you are owed for your injuries, scars, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. While money can never fully compensate you for the intense pain of a burn, lifetime scarring and long-term care for your scars, it eases the financial burdens you face.

“When 12,000 volts exploded in front of me, my whole life changed. The first lawyer I hired was slow, visited me in the hospital and told me my case was hopeless. Ten months later, Richard Alexander explained to me what he could do … my scars will always be there, but my financial future will always be secure thanks to Richard Alexander and his firm. They are great lawyers for which I am forever grateful. Dick is a great lawyer and a friend for life. They don’t come any better.” ~ Dave McNabb
