Burn Injury Lawyers-Dallas/Fort Worth Texas Attorneys
Severe burns are among the most painful of all injuries because they destroy the body’s largest organ—the skin. When burns cover large amounts of the victim’s body, they can also be life-threatening. When a burn destroys the skin, it destroys the body’s main mechanism for keeping out infections as well as its temperature and moisture-regulating system. The most severely injured need a special kind of hospitalization to give them the best chance of healing without life-threatening complications. When they do recover, medical studies suggest that they will need skin grafts or other types of treatment to stay healthy and avoid the worst scarring.

Not surprisingly, burns are most commonly caused by fires. Other fire-related injuries are more likely to kill, but fires can still cause painful and life-threatening burns. Causes seen by our burn injuries attorneys include:
- House fires caused by cooking, smoking or bad electrical wiring
- Car, truck and motorcycle accidents
- Chemical burns
Many of these accidents are directly caused by someone else’s negligence. For example, a careless driver can cause a near-instant car fire, threatening the lives of victims trapped in a wreck. In the workplace, lack of good safety practices, equipment or policies can be burn injury negligence. And in the workplace as well as at home, defective electrical wiring and products, as well as ordinary carelessness, can start fires.
Because a severe burn is a catastrophic injury, winning compensation is complex. To guarantee they will always be able to pay their medical bills, victims of burn injury negligence must carefully calculate all of the future medical costs and loss of income they anticipate, as well as the costs they have already paid. Burn injuries attorneys also must request compensation for the victims’ pain and suffering, permanent scarring and any disability.
