Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can require extensive medical treatment (including surgical procedures) and can result in scarring. If you have suffered a burn injury in an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, an Austin personal injury attorney could help you file a claim seeking compensation for those injuries.

Burn injuries can result from many different circumstances, including motor vehicle collisions, products that malfunction, dangerous chemicals, and on-the-job injuries. In some instances, these serious and painful injuries might have been avoided if a person had acted with a reasonable amount of care under the circumstances. 

If you have suffered a burn injury in an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to pursue and recover monetary compensation and damages for your injury. 

The personal injury attorneys in Austin at Terry & Kelly, PLLC, can review your case with you and determine your eligibility to pursue a claim. We could then assist you throughout your claim, and if necessary, file a lawsuit in the court system on your behalf, seeking monetary damages. 

Please give us a call today to learn more about how we could help you pursue the monetary damages that you need for your burn injury. 

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can happen in a variety of different circumstances. In motor vehicle accidents, burn injuries are common when an airbag deploys or when the accident starts a fire that causes the vehicle driver or passenger to sustain a burn injury. Burn injuries can also occur when a defectively designed or manufactured product malfunctions, causing the consumer to burn himself or herself or suffer an electrocution injury (such as from faulty wiring). In other cases, burn injuries can occur on the job when a worker is around heavy machinery or dangerous chemicals. 

Pursuing a Claim or Lawsuit Arising from a Burn Injury

If you suffered your burn injury because of someone else’s negligence – such as the negligence of a motor vehicle driver who was speeding or a product manufacturer who took shortcuts – you may be eligible to file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault person or entity. Moreover, if you were injured while on the job, you might be able to file a workers’ compensation claim seeking various types of monetary benefits (including lost wages and medical expenses) that resulted from the burn injury.
