Lawyer Referral For Specific Injury Lawsuits
When you suffer an injury through no fault of your own, you may be eligible for compensation to pay for medical expenses, lost wages and more. In some cases, you may even be entitled to punitive damages that not only help make you whole but also serve to further discipline the party responsible for your injury so they’re less likely to make the same mistake again. This was the case with a 1994 lawsuit against McDonald’s. They were sued when a customer experienced third-degree burns after spilling a fresh cup of coffee on her lap. It was found that McDonald’s coffee was 40 to 50 degrees hotter than a normal cup and contained no consumer warnings, despite the fact that McDonald’s had been informed by Shriners Burn Institute that this could cause problems. As a result, a jury initially awarded punitive damages of $2.7 million to the injured customer.
Specific injury cases are fought—and won—all the time. Some of them you’ve even heard about, such as the Erin Brockovich case in which Pacific Gas and Electric was sued for knowingly allowing hexavalent chromium to seep into a community’s water supply. As the Erin Brockovich case shows us, lawsuits for specific injuries are vital to our society. Not only do they help victims get justice and deserved compensation but they also hold companies and individuals responsible for their actions and serve to reduce negligence.
If you were injured as the result of someone who had a legal duty to avoid or prevent such an injury, then you may be eligible for damages. At Pravati Legal Networks, we work to match plaintiffs just like you to lawyers across the nation who have experience with specific injuries like the one you suffered.
