Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Can You Sue for Your Burn Injury?

Cueria Law Firm LLC personal injury New Orleans

According to USFA (U.S. Fire Administration), there are more than two million burn injuries in the United States each year. Of those two million cases, approximately 10,000 result in the person dying. A burn injury can occur while on the job, during leisure activities or even in the home. In some cases, a burn injury can result from the negligence or recklessness of another person or entity. In these situations, it is best to contact a personal injury attorney in New Orleans for help.

Burn Types

There are several different types of burns a person may suffer from. These include:

  • Thermal Burns: These typically occur in a home and result from fires in the kitchen, or auto accidents. This burn appears when the skin comes in contact with a hot substance such as dry heat, steam, hot water, flames, or a heated object.
  • Chemical Burns: Common causes of chemical burns include ammonia, bleach or other types of household cleaners.
  • Electrical Burns: These commonly occur while at work when someone comes in contact with a power cord, if an appliance is dropped in water, etc.
  • Radiation Burns: Sunburns are the most common type of radiation burn, but other causes include x-rays and radiation therapy.

Regardless of what causes the personal injury in New Orleans, seeking medical treatment is a must, since these types of burns are often extremely painful.

Injuries Caused by Burns

Even though the cause and the type of the burn is important in figuring out how to treat the injury, you also need to know the burn’s severity. There are three basic categories:

  • First Degree: This only damages the outermost layer of the skin.
  • Second Degree: The first and second layer is affected.
  • Third Degree: This is a type of burn that affects all layers of the skin and in some cases the muscles and blood vessels.

When any type of personal injury in New Orleans is suffered, a person needs to have the situation evaluated. A New Orleans personal injury lawyer can also be helpful.

When to Sue

If you are burned because of another person’s intentional wrongdoing or negligence, then you have the right to file an injury lawsuit. However, while a burn victim is entitled to receive compensatory damages for pain and suffering and medical expenses, there are a number of things that have to be considered.

After a burn injury occurs, you need to contact a personal injury attorney in New Orleans right away, since there is a statute of limitations regarding how long you have to file the lawsuit. The attorney you hire can also help determine what type of damages you may be awarded. They can also take into consideration future expenses you may face related to the injury that you have suffered.

If you have suffered a burn injury and would like more information or if you have questions, contact us today to learn more.
