An Overview of Burn Injury Claims in Louisiana
A person can suffer burns in any sort of accident that exposes them to
extreme heat, fire, or electricity. Burn injuries are excruciatingly painful
and can require a series of corrective surgeries and skin grafts to be
treated. In many cases, burns can result in lasting disfigurement, nerve
damage, and possible paralysis, causing a serious decrease in a person’s
quality of life. Serious burns can cause a person to suffer serious psychological
damage as well, requiring extensive counseling to overcome the trauma.
Burns can result from any of the following accidents:
- Gas explosions
- Scalding hot liquids
- Building Fires
- Auto collisions
- Severe electrical shocks
- Dangerous products
- Exposure to corrosive chemicals
- Construction accidents
Burn injuries are classified into different categories based on severity.
First degree burns, the mildest form, are superficial and can be recovered
from with minimal treatment. Third degree burns, on the other hand, penetrate
deep below the surface of the skin and can cause permanent damage.
Compensation for Burn Victims
In many cases, these types of injuries are the result of another person’s
negligence. If you believe you were injured due to someone else’s
recklessness, our firm can help you pursue compensation for your losses
by filing a
personal injury claim on your behalf. Whether your burns occurred at home or on-the-job,
our attorney can craft a custom-tailored strategy aimed at recovering
a fair settlement on your behalf.
You may be able to recover compensation for the following damages:
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Damaged property
- Medical expenses
- Physical therapy costs
If a loved one has unfortunately passed away due to their burns, additional
damages for loss of companionship and funeral costs can be sought by filing
wrongful death claim. It is important you consult with our firm to review your legal
options and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
