Orange County Burn Injury Attorneys
Aggressive Advocacy from Former Defense Attorneys
Accidents involving severe burn injuries are costly, traumatic, and generally involve permanent scarring and disfigurement. They are among the most painful kinds of injury that a person can experience and they require a lengthy recovery, sometimes taking months or years for a person to recuperate. If your injury was caused by the negligence of another person, you may be able to pursue compensation to cover the hefty costs of a burn injury.
Since our founding in 2004, the Law Office of Marshall Silberberg has recovered more than $500 million on behalf of our clients. Each of our attorneys has years of experience as former defense lawyers. This experience gives them an edge against opposing counsel. We take all cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that our clients do not owe any legal fees unless we obtain compensation on their behalf. We also offer free case evaluations!

What are the Primary Causes of Burn Injuries?
One of the most important elements of a burn injury case is determining the cause of the injury. Because burns can occur in a large number of circumstances, it's important to work with an attorney who has the experience and resources to fully investigate your accident.
Some of the most common causes of burns include:
- Vehicle fires
- Defective household products
- Hospital malpractice
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
Types & Severity of Burn Injuries
Another important aspect of a burn injury claim is determining the type of severity of the burn. There are four levels of burn severity:
- First-Degree Burns: These superficial burns may be painful but are considered mild and can generally be treated at home.
- Second-Degree Burns: These burns affect both the first and second layers of skin and can cause blistering and swelling.
- Third-Degree Burns: These burns are very severe, penetrating both layers of skin and deeper tissues.
- Fourth-Degree Burns: These burns are highest in severity, causing irreparable damage to nerve endings, muscle, and even bone.
Victims of third and fourth-degree burns require long-term medical treatment, including skin grafts, cosmetic surgery, and rehabilitative therapy. Unfortunately, these treatments are also some of the most costly. That is why our Orange County burn injury attorneys are here to fight for you.
We offer caring, compassionate, and accessible legal counsel to our clients, with a record of results and experience from more than three decades of legal practice. Our chief trial lawyer, Marshall Silberberg, has been handling personal injury and medical malpractice matters since 1975.
