Louisville Burn Injury Lawyers

In the aftermath of a serious accident, you may be left with thousands of dollars in property damage in addition to the pain and suffering of a burn injury. Burn injuries, in addition to causing excruciating pain, can adversely affect a person’s way of life. Some severe burns never heal, leaving burn victims with a constant and inescapable reminder of what may have been one of the worst ordeals of their lives.

Often, burn injuries are the direct result of another party’s negligent or reckless actions and therefore may warrant the consideration of a civil lawsuit. If you have suffered burns due to another person or company’s negligence, contact the Louisville burn injury lawyers of Sampson Law Firm, at 502-584-5050.

Effects of Severe Burn Injuries

Burns can occur in the first, second, and third degree. First degree burns are the least severe while third degree burns are the worst. Typically, when referring to a person as a “burn victim”, this indicates that he or she suffered a third degree burn.

Third degree burns may leave victims with:

  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Loss of sensation

In addition to the pain and suffering of treatment and recovery, burn victims must live with the physical and emotional pain that can accompany permanent disfigurement.

Causes of Burn Injuries

Burns may occur in a number of ways. Some accidents may involve another person’s negligent actions while others may result from faulty product design. Commonly, individuals suffer burn injuries from:

  • Scalding – may be caused by defective hot water heaters or the improper containment of hot liquids
  • Fires
  • Electricity – for example, due to defective products or faulty construction
  • Explosions

Victims of any of these accidents may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries.
