Definitely! Given the severity of your injury, it is critical to get the ball rolling as soon as possible to help you obtain compensation that will help cover your medical bills and other expenses related to your injury. A thorough investigation should include:
- An examination of the scene
- An examination of the instrumentalities involved in the accident
- Interviews with witnesses
- The collection of reports from investigating agencies
If possible, the instrumentalities, such as motor vehicles or machines, causing the accident should be kept in their post-accident condition until the cause of the accident is established.
Liability experts will help you determine who was at fault for your burn injury. These experts include mechanical engineers, fire investigators, accident reconstruction and human factors experts, and metallurgists who can identify the liability factors in your accident. Additionally, if there’s a question of whether a defendant’s wrongdoing caused your injury, biomedical or biomechanical engineers can be helpful.
While the fact that you are injured may be obvious, the consequences of your injury are not so clearly drawn out and will likely be disputed by the defendants.
This process can be time-consuming, so contacting a personal injury lawyer at Schlapprizzi Attorneys at Law soon after your burn injury will help speed up the time it takes to seek fair compensation.
