Personal injury law may cover a wide range of cases, from those that are considered relatively minor to those that are severe and life altering. When you have a case that involves burns or scarring, it is important to seek compensation for the long lasting impact that these injuries will cause you, especially when you consider that even a minor burn can produce intense pain as well as severe scarring that is going to last for a lifetime. If you are in the unfortunate position of dealing with burn or scar injuries, pick up the phone and contact Williams & Javellana, LLP. We will work aggressively on your behalf from the moment you contact us.

If you have suffered burn or scar injuries, you are entitled to receive general damages. These types of damages are often awarded to compensate someone for their pain and suffering. In addition to any general damages that may be awarded, it is also possible for you to be covered for lost wages and medical bills. An additional form of compensation may come from the impact that the scarring or burning has had on your life and the life of your family.

The damages that you receive may be directly related to the type of burn that you have and how it has impacted your life. Some of the factors that are considered in these cases include the pain that you experience, as well as the embarrassment or permanency of any scarring that exists. If you have an injury that limits your use of a limb, it would also be considered, as would the permanent impact that the burn has on your lifestyle.

Burns are classified as first degree, second degree or third degree burns. The type of burn that you have is also going to be considered in the case. It will also determine how much medical care is necessary in many cases. A first degree burn is the least serious of these classifications, and it only affects the outer layer of skin. A second-degree burn penetrates beyond the first layer of skin into the dermis layer, which is the second layer of skin. Third degree burns are the most serious type. These affect all layers of the skin and can even damage the underlying tissue.

If you have been involved in a burn or scar injury, it is important for you to get the proper representation as soon as possible. By contacting Williams & Javellana, LLP, you will have somebody in your corner that will work aggressively in your behalf. This is not only to get you the compensation that is due to you and your family for your injury, it is to provide you with peace of mind through the process.

Client Testimonials
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
