Burn Injury

The Aftermath of a Burn Injury: Seeking Justice and Healing with the Law Office of Paul Previte

Burn injuries can be life-altering events. The physical pain, emotional trauma, and long-term medical needs can be overwhelming. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious burn injury in Texas due to someone else’s negligence, you are not alone. The Law Office of Paul Previte can help you navigate the legal complexities of your situation and fight for the compensation you deserve.

    The Devastating Impact of Burn Injuries

    Burns vary in severity, but all can cause significant physical damage. First-degree burns affect the top layer of skin and cause redness and pain. Second-degree burns go deeper, causing blistering and severe pain. Third-degree burns are the most serious, destroying multiple layers of skin and sometimes even underlying tissue and bone. Burn injuries can lead to:

    • Excruciating pain: Burns can cause intense pain, both at the time of injury and during the healing process.
    • Scarring and disfigurement: Burns often leave permanent scars that can impact a person’s appearance and self-esteem.
    • Loss of function: Depending on the location and severity of the burn, victims may experience limited mobility or loss of function in affected areas.
    • Infection: Burn wounds are highly susceptible to infection, requiring extensive medical care and increasing the risk of complications.
    • Psychological trauma: The experience of a burn injury can be emotionally devastating, leading to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

    Burn Injury Compensation in Texas

    If your burn injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have incurred. This can include:

    • Medical expenses: Past and future medical bills associated with treating your burn injuries, including surgery, skin grafts, physical therapy, and pain medication.
    • Lost wages: Compensation for income you were unable to earn due to your injuries and recovery time.
    • Loss of earning capacity: If your burn injuries have permanently impacted your ability to work, you may be entitled to compensation for future lost income.
    • Pain and suffering: Damages for the physical and emotional pain you have endured due to the burn.
    • Disfigurement: Compensation for the permanent scarring or disfigurement caused by the burn.
    • Loss of consortium: If your burn injuries have impacted your ability to maintain a loving relationship with your spouse, you may be entitled to compensation for this loss.

    Who Can Be Held Liable for Burn Injuries?

    Burn injuries can be caused by various situations, and depending on the circumstances, different parties could be held liable. Here are some common examples:

    • Workplace accidents: If you suffered a burn injury on the job due to faulty equipment, unsafe working conditions, or employer negligence, you may have a workers’ compensation claim and a potential third-party liability claim.
    • Defective products: Burns can be caused by defective products such as malfunctioning appliances, flammable clothing, or faulty chemicals.
    • Motor vehicle accidents: Gasoline spills and fires from car accidents can cause serious burns.
    • Medical malpractice: Burns can occur in a medical setting due to surgical errors, medication mistakes, or improper treatment of burns.
    • Premises liability: Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises. Burns can occur due to faulty wiring, exposed hazards, or inadequate safety measures in places like swimming pools, restaurants, or amusement parks.
