Burns and Personal Injury
Our skin is the largest organ on our body. There are thousands of neurons which transmit signals to the brain about the texture and temperature of objects we encounter every day. Feeling pain from a sharp object, rough surface, or extreme temperature helps us protect our bodies, and our skin is the first line of defense in that process. Very minor injuries to skin from hot objects, for example, are relatively common. However, more serious burn injuries can cause lasting damage to the skin, which can affect our ability to feel changes in temperature, texture, or sharpness. These severe burn injuries have many causes, but if the cause is another’s negligence, it may become important to find a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles. Cameron Yadidi Brock at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock is here to help.
Commercial products naturally wear out over time with regular use, but this is not a “defect.” When a product is defective, some stage of the manufacturing process has gone wrong, from design to assembly. This means that other consumers are at risk, as well. If a water heater raises the temperature beyond what it is set to, scalding injuries can damage skin and lead to second or even third degree burns across much of the body. Engine parts can fail and cause a fire, which leads to an accident. It is important to investigate these issues as soon as possible after injury occurs, which is why the Law Offices of Burg & Brock offer high quality, effective product defect and motorcycle accident attorneys for Los Angeles residents and others who suffer injury in Southern California.
