How We Handle Burn Injury Claims
Your claim will be assessed by your
burn injury lawyer, who will make the determination on whether or not you have a valid
claim under Texas law for damages. As part of handling your case, your
- Review All Medical Reports and Records Prepared by Your Treating Physician
and May Send You to Additional Doctors
- Work Alongside Medical Experts in Order to Evaluate the Full Extent and
Costs of Your Injuries, in Conjunction with Any Future Medical Costs Including
Procedures and Rehabilitation
- Gather and Then Secure All of the Relevant Evidence, Including Police Reports,
Fire Department Reports and Any Accident Scene Photos
- Retain the Proper Experts, Including but Not Limited to Electricians, Accident
Investigators, Safety Inspectors and More in Order to Establish the Cause/Causes
of the Accident and Make a Proper Determination on Who Is Liable for Your
Personal Injury Burn Settlements
It’s possible that your burn injury lawyer will be able to secure
a settlement offer prior to your case going to trial. All too often, insurance
companies will offer settlements that are far too inadequate and in no
way fully compensate the victim for all the damages they’ve suffered.
Your burn injury lawyer will be able to negotiate with the insurance company
on your behalf to help ensure that you’re properly compensated for
your injuries. If settlement negotiations fail, our burn injury lawyers
will have the experience, resources and capabilities to take and win your
case at trial.
Burn Injury Compensation
Our burn injury lawyers will fight for your rights and help you obtain
adequate compensation for your burn injuries. There are three types of
compensation that are usually available to burn injury victims:
- Economic Damages
- Noneconomic Damages
- Punitive Damages
Economic damages allow for compensation of medical expenses that are a
result of the burn injury. This compensation includes past, present and
future medical and rehabilitation expenses essential for your recovery.
Also, you may be entitled to lost wage compensation as well as diminished
earning capacity if you’re no longer able to perform the essential
functions that your job requires.
Non-economic damages award a victim for their pain and suffering. These
damages have the intention of compensating burn injury victims for both
their mental anguish and their physical pain caused directly by the accident.
Burn injury victims may also find themselves entitled to additional financial
compensation for any disfigurement that may have occurred as a result
of the burn injury.
Finally, punitive damages are assessed whenever there is conduct that’s
particularly reckless. At this point, the jury or court may award burn
injury victims punitive damages. These damages are designed in order to
curtail this type of similar behavior from the defendant in the future.
