Leg Burns


We often get asked, “What is personal injury?” It’s a great question, but a better one may be: “What do personal injury lawyers do?”

In short: we are warriors for our clients. We go to battle every day for our clients, and we go the distance. We fight for justice, and for our clients to be fairly compensated for injuries sustained in an accident. WE CARE. WE FIGHT. WE WIN.

When you have been wronged by someone, and that person or business denies responsibility, it can feel like being spit in the face. We see this time and time again, and after such an experience, the battle becomes so much more than just about money. Our firm is dedicated to building relationships with our clients, understanding their needs, and providing them with personalized representation, so they do not feel alone. Here is a recent case example.

Our client went to a well-known medical spa in Newport Beach seeking laser hair removal on her legs. She walked out from that facility with over 100 first, second and third-degree burns.

As small children, we are taught to confess to our mistakes, and to take responsibility. We offered the facility a chance to make things right, by owning up to their mistake, and to compensate our client fairly. They refused to pay anything.

Our only next course of action was to file suit against the facility and its doctors and nurses alleging negligence and gross negligence. Yet again, the facility denied any wrongdoing. The defense lawyers immediately filed a procedural motion called a Demurrer, asking the Court to dismiss our client’s case in its entirety! This is not exaggeration: the facility DENIED ANY NEGLIGENCE for causing our client over 100 burns.

We opposed the Demurrer, defending our client’s allegations of negligence and gross negligence. The Court agreed with us on all counts and denied the defense’s Demurrer. Our client will now have the chance to fight for fair compensation for these horrible burns.

While no one expects something as horrible as this to happen to them, if it does, we will have your back. We pride ourselves on our personal touch, and our ability to exceed expectations.
