FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE ON BEHALF OF BURN SURVIVORS

No matter whether a burn is thermal, electrical, or the like, the resulting injury can be severe. In fact, many burn survivors are required to undergo inpatient care and some form of rehabilitation to recover, which costs both time and money and can leave a person with an abundance of debt. This can be all the more devastating when your burn injury was caused by another person.

If your burn injury resulted from the negligent or careless actions of another, DiPasquale Moore is here for you. Per law, you have the right to pursue compensation for the harm that has been done to you, and we have the experience to help you exercise that right efficiently and effectively.

Call us today at (888) 743-1030. our Columbia burn injury attorneys can discuss your legal options and best interests in a free consultation.

DOES MY BURN INJURY QUALIFY FOR A CLAIM?

A general rule of thumb to remember is if the other person could have prevented your burn injury by being more careful and attentive, then it is likely that you have grounds to take legal action against them.

A common source of burn injuries includes traffic collisions caused by speeding, drunk, or otherwise reckless drivers and defective products.

Structure fires are also common causes of burn injuries; if the property owner did not have safety precautions in place to address a fire emergency, they could be considered negligent.

WHAT ARE FIRST-, SECOND-, AND THIRD-DEGREE BURNS?

Burn injuries can be sustained in varying degrees of severity:

  • First-degree burns: This is the least severe type of burn, as it damages only the outer layer of skin (epidermis).
  • Second-degree burns: This burn affects the epidermis in addition to the layer of skin underneath it (dermis). Swollen, red, shiny, wet-looking skin and blisters are all signs of a second-degree burn.
  • Third-degree burns: This is a burn that damages a full two layers of skin and is, therefore, often referred to as a “full-thickness burn.” The skin will appear unusually white, yellow, brown, or black.
  • Fourth-degree burns: This is the most severe burn injury, as it affects all layers of skin, bones, muscles, and tendons.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY BURN INJURY CLAIM?

Although any burn injury caused by another person will render you eligible for a claim, the more severe your burn is, the more your case tends to be worth and, therefore, the higher the stakes are. This is important to note because negligent parties will do all they can to avoid losing a high-stakes case — they know that it will not only cost them money but also harm their reputation in the eyes of the public and lead to other long-term consequences. That’s why it is crucial to obtain the help of a burn injury lawyer who will fight relentlessly for you and your rights.
