Cedar Park Burn Injury Attorney
If you have suffered a burn injury that you believe was caused by the negligence of someone else, you need a personal injury attorney with experience in burn injury cases to help you determine if you have a case. Whether your burn injury was incurred in a car accident, on the job or due to an act of negligence by another person or entity, you need to act fast to preserve your legal rights. Personal injury cases are limited by a statute of limitations. When time runs out to file your case, you’ve lost your legal recourse to recover damages for your burn injuries. If you’ve been injured, consult with the Cedar Park burn injury attorneys at Zinda Law Group as soon as possible. It is important not to take a quick settlement from the other party’s insurance company. That settlement may be a fraction of what you might be awarded by a jury if your case went to court. Remember that when you sign papers accepting a settlement you are signing away your legal rights. What seems like a lot of money right now might run out quickly if your burns are severe and you need skin grafts or other reconstructive surgery.
Burn injuries can be caused by fire, chemicals, hot liquids, electrical accidents and even by an air bag deploying quickly and striking exposed skin. A first degree burn is like a mild sunburn and while it’s always good to have a burn examined by a doctor, a first degree burn can normally be cared for at home. Second degree burns are deeper than first degree burns, involve more layers of skin and are rated in severity by their size. If a second degree burn covers more than three inches of skin, it requires medical attention. Third degree burns, especially if they are large burns, usually require hospitalization, skin grafts and reconstructive surgery.
Recovering from serious burns and medical procedures to treat the burns can mean missing work for extended periods of time. If your burn injury was caused by negligence on the part of another, you shouldn’t have to pay medical costs out of pocket and worry about household bills and putting food on the table while you’re out of work.
