How Our Portland Burn Injury Lawyer at Strong Law Can Help
If you decide to partner with a Portland burn injury attorney from our team, how can we help you? Some of the most important points to keep in mind include the following:
Reach Out to Experts
In some situations, we might need to reach out to experts who can support your case. For example, we may need to reach out to a doctor who can speak about the nature of your injuries, or we may need to contact an expert who is familiar with the piece of equipment that led to your burn injury.
Because we have handled these cases in the past, we have a strong cadre of experts to call upon to testify on your behalf. This will make it easier for the jury to understand exactly what you have experienced.
If we file a lawsuit on your behalf, we can subpoena various documents that can support your case. For example, we may need to collect documents related to the accident, or we might need to ask for documents related to a piece of heavy equipment that led to your injuries.
We can use our subpoena power to collect evidence that we can use to build a successful case on your behalf.
If we need to speak to witnesses, we can subpoena them as well. We can depose them on your behalf, forcing them to answer questions under oath.
Then, based on the information we provide, we can formulate a strong case that we can use to pursue compensation for your injuries and lost income.
Negotiate a Favorable Settlement
As our team continue to build a strong case on your behalf, we can use our leverage to negotiate a favorable settlement. There are situations where it might be better for you to settle your case so you don’t have to worry about going to the courtroom.
If we settle your case out of court, you may also have the option of keeping all of the information related to your case confidential.
Take Your Case to Trial
At Strong Law, we will advise you every step of the way, but if you are not getting a fair settlement, we will recommend you take the case to trial instead. We understand you may have yet to go to court, but we will ensure that you are prepared for the trial.
Then we can present your case to a judge and jury to see how much they feel your case is worth. Count on us to act as your legal guide during this process.
What Should You Do After Suffering a Burn Injury?
If you have suffered a serious burn injury, we understand that you will probably have a lot of thoughts going through your head. You need to know what to do next.
Some of the actions you should take include:
You need to document everything related to the accident. For example, if you have suffered a burn injury and a motor vehicle accident, you should try to take pictures and videos of the scene. If you have been involved in a workplace accident that led to a serious burn injury, try to take pictures of what happened.
Seek Medical Care As Quickly As Possible
Your health has to come first, so seek medical care as quickly as possible. If you feel you cannot get to the doctor safely on your own, call 911 to ask for help.
If you have suffered a burn injury in a motor vehicle accident, you should always call 911 to ask for the authorities and emergency medical personnel to come to the scene.
If you have suffered your burn injury at work, you should report your injury to your employer before seeking medical care from an independent doctor.

Types of Compensation Our Burn Injury Attorneys Can Recover on Your Behalf
If we take your case, there are different types of compensation that we may be able to recover on your behalf.
Some of the compensation our attorneys can pursue includes:
If you have incurred additional expenses due to your accident and injuries, we can pursue compensation for those expenses. These are typically called economic damages, including anything with a receipt.
For example, if you have property damage due to the accident, we can recover compensation for you. Likewise, if you have medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident, we can also ask for compensation for that.
If you have missed work and lost income due to the injury, our attorneys at Strong Law can also ask for compensation for those damages.
Then, there are non-economic damages that a burn injury attorney in Portland may be able to pursue on your behalf. While these damages might not come with a receipt, they are still important and can significantly increase the size of your claim.
For example, if you have incurred significant emotional trauma due to the accident, we can pursue compensation for pain and suffering. In addition, if the circumstances of the accident were particularly egregious, we may be able to pursue punitive damages against the defendant as well.
