There’s little in life more infuriating than a loved one’s wrongful death. When you can trace the unexpected, untimely, and avoidable passing of a loved one to another person’s negligence, you have every right to demand justice. Fortunately, California allows you to pursue civil justice for a loved one’s wrongful passing in civil court.
You can discuss your right to a personal injury case with wrongful death lawyers in California. Triumph Law can then investigate the nature of your loved one’s accident and bring forward evidence of a liable party’s negligence. Once we can prove that you deserve damages for a loved one’s passing, you can demand that compensation in court.
Negligence Is Often the Cause of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries can occur in a variety of situations, including workplace accidents, car accidents, and household accidents. For example, an employer may be responsible for a burn injury if they failed to provide adequate safety equipment or training to their employees.
Similarly, a property owner may be responsible for a burn injury if they failed to maintain their property in a safe condition or failed to warn visitors of potential hazards. A scalding burn, such as the burn experienced by the woman in the well-known McDonald’s hot coffee case, can also be caused by negligence. In that case, the restaurant was held liable for her injuries.
Fires and burn injuries can be due to negligence in the following situations:
- Locked fire exits
- Workplace injuries
- Truck accidents and tanker explosions
- Scalding water and pipes
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Electrical accidents
- Fires in public venues
- Apartment building fires
Burn injuries can have devastating effects on individuals and their families. If your accident should have been prevented, you have the legal right to pursue justice and compensation. A burn injury lawyer in California can help to determine if negligence can be proven in your case.

A burn victim’s injuries will never be repaired, but the losses you’ve incurred are still worthy of compensation. The injuries you sustained as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence shouldn’t be your responsibility.
Filing Your Wrongful Death Case Within California’s Statute of Limitations
Our attorneys work to give you all the space you need after the death of a loved one. However, the state of California puts a deadline on your right to file a lawsuit against the person responsible for your loved one’s passing. According to California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, you have no more than two years to bring a civil case forward.
This means that you must investigate your loved one’s death, assign liability, and estimate your possible damages by the second anniversary of your loved one’s passing. If you’re taking care of grieving loved ones and contending with your mourning process, that deadline can feel unfair.
Fortunately, you’re under no obligation to delve into the details of your loved one’s passing on your own. When you collaborate with a California wrongful death lawyer, you can place the onus of your case on our shoulders. This way, you can focus on your family while we talk with bystanders, analyze evidence, and file your claim.
