Assisting Edmonton Burn Injury Victims with Recovering the Compensation They Deserve in their Personal Injury Cases

Burn injuries can be painful and unsightly—especially when they produce scars. Victims of burn injuries also have to undergo lengthy periods of medical treatment, and they may require reconstructive surgery. Although victims of car accidents on Highways 1, 2, or 9 sometimes suffer burn injuries in serious crashes, accident victims can also suffer these injuries due to malfunctioning products that they purchase, chemicals, and job site accidents. Sadly, these accidents and injuries are often avoidable if someone else was not negligent.

If you have suffered burn injuries in an accident because of another person’s reckless conduct, you may be eligible for monetary compensation. You can obtain this compensation by filing a personal injury claim—usually with the at-fault party’s insurance company—or a lawsuit in the Alberta court system.

The compassionate legal team at MNH Injury Lawyers has 17 years of experience representing victims of serious accidents. We have successfully represented injured victims of car crashes, slips and falls, and other accidents that have led to catastrophic injuries—including burn injuries. Over the past ten years, we have also obtained favorable settlement compensation for over 1,000 personal injury clients and successfully taken numerous cases to trial. We appear at all court levels throughout Alberta.

Accidents That Can Lead to Burn Injuries

Any serious accident can result in a burn injury

Some of the most common ways that burn injuries occur in Edmonton include:

  • Motor vehicle crashes – Motor vehicle collisions in Alberta can happen on various roadways, including the intersections of Yellowhead Trail and 149 Street; 107 Avenue and 142 Street; 90 Avenue and 85 Street; and 23 Avenue and 91 Street. These intersections have high traffic volumes and are especially dangerous when snow and ice are present in the winter months. In a motor vehicle crash, the airbags might deploy, and the accident victim can sustain a rash or burn. A high-speed collision may also cause the vehicle to catch fire, resulting in a burn injury.
  • Job site accidents – Builders and construction workers around dangerous equipment all day are particularly susceptible to burn injuries in a fall—or when equipment malfunctions and starts a fire. These individuals also work around dangerous chemicals that can burn the worker’s exposed skin. In addition to pursuing monetary compensation from a third party, such as a supervisor, an injured worker can pursue a workers’ compensation claim to recover monetary benefits for their burn injury.

If you have suffered a burn injury in one of these occurrences, you might be eligible to recover money damages. An experienced Edmonton burn injury lawyer at MNH Injury Lawyers can review the circumstances that led to your burn injury and determine if you have a potential claim. If so, we can help you throughout the claims-filing process and work to get you the compensation that you need for your injury.

Recovering Monetary Compensation for Your Burn Injury

If you suffered a burn injury due to someone else’s negligence—or while working at your job—you should contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. The knowledgeable and compassionate team at MNH Injury Lawyers understands the embarrassment, suffering, humiliation, and pain that often accompany a severe burn injury.

After reviewing the accident circumstances with you, we can file a claim with the appropriate insurance company and aggressively negotiate on your behalf. If the insurance company—for whatever reason—refuses to offer you a full and fair settlement amount, we can file a lawsuit in the Alberta court system and pursue the compensation you deserve through zealous litigation.

What is the Deadline to File a Personal Injury Claim after a Burn Injury?

Victims of burns and other serious injuries do not have unlimited time to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. In almost all Alberta personal injury cases, accident victims only have two years from their accident date to file a lawsuit seeking monetary damages. This is a hard-and-fast deadline, and if the accident victim fails to file a timely lawsuit in their case, they waive the way to recover damages for their injuries later on. Therefore, always retain a skilled Edmonton burn injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.

At MNH Injury Lawyers, we will make sure to file a timely lawsuit in your claim, safeguarding your right to recover the monetary damages you deserve. After filing a personal injury lawsuit, we can aggressively settle your case or, if necessary, take your case to trial. Either way, you can rest assured that your case is in good hands and that we will fiercely fight for your right to recover full and fair compensation.

Edmonton Burn Injury FAQs

The following are some common questions we answer for clients. To discuss your specific concerns, reach out to our office directly.

Potential Consequences of Edmonton Burn Injuries?

People who suffer a burn injury in an accident—or while at work—often need to seek extensive medical treatment to recover. In addition to initial treatment in a hospital emergency room, the accident victim may need to undergo surgery or other medical procedure—especially if the burn injury resulted in an unsightly scar or other disfigurement. They may also need to attend therapy if the burn injury prevents them from using their hands or feet.

If you sustained a burn injury due to someone else’s negligence, the caring and compassionate Edmonton burn injury lawyers at MNH Injury Lawyers are here for you. We can help you pursue the compensation you need for the pain, suffering, inconvenience, and humiliation you experienced due to your burn injury.

What Are the Most Common Accidents That Lead to Burn Injuries?

Burn injuries often occur when other individuals and entities are negligent. In the case of defective products, the product at issue might electrocute a consumer, explode, or fall apart, resulting in a burn injury. Product manufacturers and distributors must use reasonable care when designing and assembling their merchandise.

They must also test their products before making them available to the general public for sale and distribution. When a product malfunctions and a burn injury results, the injury victim can pursue legal action against the manufacturer, distributor, or other entity in the distribution chain.

Just like product manufacturers, motor vehicle drivers must operate their vehicles safely and responsibly.

Drivers violate that duty when they engage in:

  • Road rule violations, such as failing to yield the right-of-way at the appropriate times, passing other vehicles in a no-passing zone, speeding, tailgating, and failing to use a turn signal at an intersection—or when making a lane change
  • Distracted driving, when the at-fault driver fails to watch the road
  • Intoxicated driving, when a driver operates their vehicle while under the illegal influence of drugs or alcohol

When a burn injury victim can demonstrate that their accident happened because of another driver’s negligence—and that the accident caused their burn injury—they can bring a claim or file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver for damages. In most instances, the accident victim will file their claim directly with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

How Does the Injury Claim Process Work?

When it comes time to file a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurer, we can prepare a settlement demand letter and a complete demand package on your behalf. The demand letter will make a monetary demand for settlement within the applicable coverage limits, while the demand package will include copies of your medical reports, lost wage statements, police reports, eyewitness statements, and a victim impact statement. The insurance company will use all of this information to evaluate the claim’s settlement value.

Once the insurance company accepts liability for the accident, the adjuster might make an offer to settle. Since these opening settlement offers are usually very low and far below a case’s actual value, we will likely need to negotiate with the insurance company adjuster and obtain a better settlement offer for you.

In some instances, depending upon the insurance company, adjusters are willing to work hard to settle the case. However, at other times, adjusters refuse to compensate burn injury victims for the fair value of their claim. If that occurs in your case, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf in the court system.

After filing a lawsuit in court, we can continue our settlement negotiations. Once the case is in litigation, the court will likely issue a scheduling order that establishes various deadlines in the case, including a settlement conference and jury trial date. During the discovery phase of litigation, we will answer written questions from the defense lawyer, called interrogatories, on your behalf.

We will also be by your side if the defense lawyer decides to take your discovery deposition. The discovery deposition is the defense lawyer’s opportunity to ask you about the accident, your burn injury, and the impacts of the injury on your life and overall well-being.

Finally, we can advocate for you at all court hearings—including at settlement conferences and a jury trial. We can help you decide whether to accept the insurance company’s top settlement offer, take your case to trial, or pursue alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or binding arbitration. 

Whether we can resolve your burn injury case favorably through settlement, jury trial, or binding arbitration, you can rest assured that we will zealously advocate for your legal interests and work to obtain all of the compensation that you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, you may have questions about what to do next, how to figure out benefits, how to get compensation, and when to contact a lawyer. Our FAQ page is designed to help you through the initial phases of a stressful time and answer common post-accident questions.

The at-fault party’s insurance company may offer you a settlement right away. We understand the temptation to accept—especially if your injuries mean you cannot work. However, the initial offer is usually low compared to the value of your claim. Settling early is risky because if you develop serious and chronic complications, you have settled for far less than the value of your claim.

When our accident injury team at MNH Injury Lawyers represents you, we make sure we have presented all the evidence we need to present to ensure you obtain full and fair value. We ensure all the expenses and losses related to your accident are known before entertaining or agreeing to a settlement offer. This stage of the legal process may require patience, but that patience can lead to an optimal outcome for you.
