Some common causes of burn injuries

Burn can occur due to many reasons. The intensity and severity can be different; it can range from minor burns to deep tissue burns. Medical treatment for severe injuries can be expensive; you might have to stay inpatient for multiple days, which contributes to higher bills.

Here are a few reasons injuries may happen:

Hot Appliances

If you have a faulty water heater or broken oven that heats the oven handle or any other machine for that matter, you might get burn injuries. For example, water heaters turn water hot; if they are faulty and turn the water to scalding hot in the middle of the bath, it can seriously injure your skin. It can give you first-degree burn; it can cause your skin to peel off, become red and irritated. A faulty heating appliance that caused you to burn yourself calls for a lawsuit. Our attorneys will cess if we can create a strong case, and the reasons are valid enough before we go into trial.

Home Fires

Residential fires are a common cause of nationwide burn injuries. There have been more than 350,000 registered house fires in the U.S., according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). If you have lost a close one, you can sue whoever is responsible on behalf of them. Many house fires are caused because of defective electrical panels and plumbing, gas lines, and other home appliances. If you were injured because of the actions of another party, after filing a lawsuit, you might receive compensation for your injury and the things you have lost.

Electrical Burns

Electrical burns may occur when an electric appliance is faulty. Just like heating appliance burns, electric injuries happen when the equipment is not manufactured correctly. Electric burns can be severe and fatal. We can help to look into all the details of how the trauma occurred and if the manufacturer can really be filed for a lawsuit, or we will just be wasting our time.

Chemical Burns

A few businesses and jobs require you to deal with dangerous chemicals. You might suffer a chemical burn while working from toxic or corrosive material such as acids. If you inhale toxic chemicals causing internal burns or you handle a piece of equipment that had a corrosive chemical in it. If the accident happened due to lack of instruction in case of manufacturing default or negligence when you are suing your employer, we can help.

Your rights and duties on suing someone for burn injury

When it’s a personal injury case in Texas, you may be able to file a “negligence” case against the at-fault party. There are few things to remember, the people you will be presenting a lawsuit on will have their defendant lawyers. Your case needs to valid and strong to stand up against the defense. You will have to show proof that the burn was caused due to their fault.

There can be a case of negligence in safety, security, and maintenance of the place that the burn occurred in.
The burn was caused by defective equipment under warranty.

If you can prove that your injuries were caused by negligence on the part of a third party, you can get compensated for current and future loss of wages, medical expenses, pain, and suffering. Every state has its laws on how much money you can sue the faulty for. Our attorneys are well-acquainted with the rules and know what specifics to look for when filing a case. You could also be compensated for punitive damages in gross negligence cases. Punitive damages are awarded as a way of rewarding the defendant(s) for their crimes and prohibiting similar actions from being committed in the future.

We request our clients to file charges as soon as possible. You will have a limited period to lodge a case; after that period you case won’t be heard. This legal limit is referred to as the statute of limitations and it differs in different states. For Texas, the period is four years from the time of the incident. You will be left out of legal options if you miss the opportunity to lodge your petition on time.
