At The Voorhies Law Firm, we have handled various types of burn cases occurring in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana and have the resources and knowledge to help you and your loved ones recover.
Burn injuries may vary greatly in terms of severity. Depending on the extent of and type of your burn, it may be classified as:
- First-degree burn
- Second-degree burn
- Third-degree burn
The implications of these classifications are significant in that they indicate the nature and scope of the burn and often help in anticipating recovery time.
- Second/ third-degree burns: the skin is irreparably damaged and skin grafting and/or other surgical intervention may be necessary.
In these cases, a victim's award may account for the costs associated with their surgery, skin grafts, rehabilitation, physical therapy, hospitalization, and future medical care.
Additionally, if your burn injury has resulted in permanent scarring, you may be entitled to damages for future cosmetic and corrective procedures. In severe cases, nerve damage can accompany a burn injury. In those instances, the burn victim may be able to recover for physical limitations related to their injury. The long-term effects of a burn injury can also vary by age. For example, children may have more difficulty with the healing process because they are still growing, which adds extra stress to the burnt skin.
A burn injury can be one of the most painful and devastating reasons for a personal injury lawsuit. If you or someone you care about has suffered a burn injury as a result of someone else's negligence or been burned by a defective product, you have options for legal recourse. Our New Orleans burn injury attorneys can help you translate your suffering into monetary terms and recover the damages you deserve.
