Definitely! Given the severity of your injury, it is critical to have an investigation done as soon as possible. This will help you obtain compensation, which helps to cover your medical bills and other expenses related to your injury.
A thorough investigation of an accident that results in a burn injury 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, all item related to the accident, such as motor vehicles or machines, should be kept in their post-accident condition until the cause of the accident is established.
Liability experts will help you determine who or what was at fault for your burn injury. These experts include various engineers, fire investigators, accident reconstruction and human factors experts, and metallurgists. These professionals can help identify the liability factors in your accident. Additionally, if there are questions 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.
