Austin Burn Injury Lawyer
Burn injuries are some of the most excruciatingly painful injuries a person can experience. Consult with a burn injury lawyer in Austin for helping bringing the culpable party to justice.
There are countless ways that a person can suffer significant burns, the majority of which occur in accidents caused by the irresponsible or negligent actions of another.
If this sounds like the cause of your burn injuries, an experienced Austin burn injury lawyer at Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP may be able to assist you in pursuing a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your physical, psychological, and financial losses.
Our firm will work tirelessly to establish fault so that the appropriate person or persons can be found liable for your damages. This individual or entity will then be compelled to repay you for the harm they caused if we are successful in negotiating with their insurance company and in court. Below, we discuss the severity of third-degree burns and who might be at fault for the cause of your burn injuries.
The Impact of Full-Thickness Burns
Full-thickness burn injuries, more commonly known as third- or fourth-degree burns, destroy both the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. The burns themselves will expose nerve endings, which can be painful, but the worst part of burns of this nature is often the cleaning and debridement.
This involves peeling back additional layers of skin in order to expose fresh nerve endings that will enable the survivor to grow new skin where their skin was damaged.
Third- and fourth-degree burns can take months or even years to fully recover from, and those who are lucky enough to survive will then likely endure substantial scarring and limited movement that could be emotionally traumatizing and physically frustrating.
Your entire life is sure to be upheaved if you’ve suffered a full-thickness burn in an accident, which is why holding the liable party accountable is so important to your future well-being and recovery.
Bringing an Injury Claim against the Liable Party
The individual or party that is going to be found at fault will be dependent upon the type of accident you were involved in. For instance, if you suffered chemical burns after falling over hazardous chemicals on someone else’s property, you would more than likely bring a claim against the property owner.
Alternatively, if your burns were caused by an explosion in a motor vehicle wreck, then the driver of the vehicle who hit you, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), automakers, or a number of other entities could be to blame.
Your Austin lawyer’s investigation will uncover whose negligence is responsible for causing your burn injuries so that any and all contributing parties can be compelled to repay you for their part in the full-thickness burns you suffered.
