If either you or your loved one has suffered a severe burn injury, call The Doan Law Firm immediately for free consultation, and you’ll be under no obligation. There are statutes of limitation in Texas, which limits the amount of time you have to file your burn injury lawsuit, so it’s essential you contact us immediately.
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 lawyer will:
- 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 Burn Injuries
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.

Our burn injury lawyers handle many types of burn injury lawsuits, including:
- Chemical Spills
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
