Why Should I Hire a Houston Burn Injury Lawyer?

Proving that another party is responsible for your burn injury can be complicated. You must prove the legal elements of negligence to recover compensation for your injuries and losses. In most burn injury cases, you must prove:

  • The party owed you a duty of care;
  • The party breached the duty of care;
  • Because of the breach of care, an accident occurred;
  • Which resulted in you sustaining burns; and,
  • You sustained damages and harm because of the burns.

What If I’m Going Up Against a Large Insurance Company?

While proving these legal elements may appear simple, you must remember that you are likely fighting a large insurance company or corporation that is not interested in paying your claim. The insurance company’s goal is to pay as little as possible to settle your burn injury claim. If the insurance company can deny the claim outright, that would make them even happier.

Our Houston burn injury attorneys have significant experience handling these types of cases. We understand how to investigate burn injury claims to uncover the cause of the burn and identify the party responsible for the factors that led to the burn. Our legal team aggressively works to secure crucial evidence proving fault and liability before the evidence is destroyed or lost.

If you are recovering from a burn injury, you do not have the time or the strength to mount an aggressive investigation into the cause of your injuries. You also may not have the resources necessary to go up against companies that may have unlimited resources.

How Do Burn Injuries Happen?

A person may sustain a burn injury in a variety of ways. There are several different types of burns, including contact burns, scalding injuries, electrical burns, thermal burns, and chemical burns. Accidents that can result in burns include, but are not limited to:

If you have been burned in an accident, seek immediate medical care. Even a minor burn can result in an infection that can become life-threatening.

How Much is My Burn Injury Claim Worth?

The value of a burn injury claim depends on many factors. The severity of the burn has a significant impact on how much money you may receive for a burn injury in Houston.

Burns are described by degrees. The severity of the damage to the skin determines the degree of the burn.

  • First Degree Burns damage the outer layer of skin. These burns generally heal within a few weeks.
  • Second Degree Burns cause damage to the first and second layers of skin. Depending on the severity of the burn, a victim may need a skin graft to protect the area while it heals. Scarring may also occur with second-degree burns.
  • Third Degree Burns destroy both the first and second layers of skin and damage the underlying layers. Third-degree burns are severe and require immediate medical attention.
  • Fourth, Fifth & Sixth Degree Burns reach all underlying layers of skin and can cause damage to the bone. These burns may cause death. Victims that survive often have severe impairments and spend months in the hospital and long-term care facilities.

The treatment for a burn injury depends on the severity of the injury. Doctors may use a variety of treatments, including surgery, burn cream, pain medication, dressings, antibiotics, and fluids to treat burn injuries.

Our Houston burn injury lawyers work closely with your physicians to determine the extent of your burn injuries. We may retain specialists and experts to assist in providing a detailed prognosis for your future care and treatment to provide overwhelming evidence that supports the maximum settlement amount or jury verdict available for your burn injury claim.
