If you or a loved one have been the victims of a burn injury due to the negligence of another person or company, you should consult with our burn injury attorney at Cueria Law Firm. 

At Cueria Law Firm, LLC, our burn injury attorney has witnessed first hand the physical and psychological scars faced by those injured in an accident involving fire, extreme temperatures, or friction. The Louisiana legal system outlines a burn injury victim’s rights to compensation in the event their injuries occurred in an accident which was the fault of or due to the negligence of another person. These can be mistakes or, in some cases, intentional or deliberate actions. 

Accidents Which Lead to a Burn Injury

We often face risks of a burn injury as we go about our day, and don’t realize it. Whether in a home, place of business or a workplace, if a burn risk is present, the owner or operator of the property has a duty to warn visitors or workers of their risk. Otherwise, they may be found negligent and held liable for an accident which resulted in injury. A few examples of burn injury cases in which injured party can seek compensation for their suffering include:

  • Burns caused by accidents in a restaurant or café
  • Burns caused by friction or fires in a auto accident
  • Burns caused by chemicals being improperly used or stored in the workplace
  • Burns caused by fires resulting from electrical issues at work, in a place of business or a private residence
  • Burns caused by malfunctioning equipment at work, in a place of business or a private residence

There are many ways in which an individual can sustain a burn injury. If you or a loved one have suffered  in an accident which resulted in first, second or third degree burns, you should contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in burn injury cases. To contact our burn injury attorney, you can call Cueria Law Firm at (504) 525-5211. 

Understanding Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are categorized in a degree system using first, second, third and fourth degree burn ratings. The severity of a burn is determined by a medical professional who will examine the burn for its depth (which layers of skin are affected), size of the affected area, and cause (chemical, electrical, friction, radiation or thermal). In addition to those factors, the age and overall health of the patient will also be considered when classifying a burn and deciding a treatment plan. 

While first degree burns can be treated at home by running cool water on the affected area and then bandaging with a medical wrap, more severe burns should be handled by a medical professional. If you or someone you are with receive a burn injury, you should seek medical attention immediately. Do not try to remove clothing or other materials which are burned into the skin, as that can exaggerate the burn injury further and require a longer, more painful healing process.

The Cost of a Burn Injury

The American Burn Association reports an approximate 486,000 burn injuries required medical treatment in 2016. Of those, approximately 40,000 required extended hospitalizations.  The treatments for first, second and third degree burns can quickly add up as the burns need to be attended to each day. Some burn injuries will limit a person’s ability to perform their job, or their ability to go to work entirely. Lost wages and medical bills can be extremely stressful for an already injured person to deal with.  

For individuals who are injured in an accident which is not their fault, the state of Louisiana reserves their right to file a claim against a person or company for damages caused by that party’s negligence. The damages you can file for include costs of medical treatment (both present and future), lost wages due to inability to work (both present and future), mental pain and suffering caused by the burn injury, treatment process or scars, and other changes in quality of life caused by a burn injury. 

An experienced burn injury attorney understands what burn victims are facing. Our team at Cueria Law Firm, LLC helps those individuals by reviewing all the facts of their accident, working with investigators and forensic experts to determine the cause of their burn injuries. We’ll identify a responsible party, collect documentation and witness statements and form a strategy to make sure you receive the financial resources you need to recover from your burn injury. You can call Cueria Law Firm, LLC for a free consultation on your burn injury case at (504) 525-5211.
