What to Know About Burn Injury Cases
Burns are considered some of the most painful types of injuries that a person can suffer. Unfortunately, they are becoming more and more common. Some of the most common things that cause burns include malfunctioning tanning beds, overheated equipment, chemical exposure, scalding liquids and oils, fires and explosions.
If you have suffered a burn injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation if the burn occurred because of someone else’s negligence. If you are in this situation, it is essential to contact attorneys in New Orleans for help. The fact is, burn injury cases involve quite a few factors and if you don’t have legal representation you may not be able to recover the damages you deserve.
Where and How the Accident Occurred
When it comes to a burn injury settlement, the staff at the New Orleans law firm you hire will tell you that one of the most important factors is determining where and how the accident occurred. In many cases, burns result in permanent pain and suffering and scarring, which means that the settlement value is often higher. Each side has to negotiate based on what they believe the victim may receive if the case goes to trial.
New Orleans lawyers can help a victim determine where the burn injury occurred and the amount that a jury may award in a trial situation. There are many different types of reasons burns occur, which is why having legal representation is so important.
Potential for Punitive Damages
As a burn victim, you may also be able to receive punitive damages if you are able to prove that the person who caused the injury acted in a negligent or intentional manner. This is referred to as “gross negligence.” These are damages that are awarded in order to punish defendants who have acted in a condemnable manner. Any person who acted in a way that was intentional and that led to the burn injury will almost always have to pay punitive damages. Attorneys in New Orleans can help you understand if you are eligible to receive this.
Types of Compensation You May Receive
If it is determined that you suffered a burn injury because of negligence of another person, then you may be able to recover compensation for the injuries you suffered. Some of the types of compensation you may be able to recover include:
- Any medical bills related to the injury now and in the future.
- Out-of-pocket medical related expenses.
- Lost wages that resulted from your inability to work due to the injury.
- Present and future disfigurement, pain and suffering and disability.
Burn Injury Settlements
Burn injuries can be mild, but they can also be severe. Regardless of the severity of the injury, a victim typically has the right to recover damages. Hiring a New Orleans law firm is the best way to ensure you receive compensation for the injuries you suffered. If you need more information, you can contact us today.
