Houston Burn Injury Attorney
We are Ready to Help you Seek Relief
When someone acts with negligence or otherwise ignores commonplace safety
procedures, the results can be both devastating and unexpected, such as
is the case when a burn injury occurs. Most people think of broken bones
or lacerations when it comes to personal injury claims, not serious burns;
this “out of sight, out of mind” mentality may cause people
to behave negligently around dangerous burn sources, unaware of that the
hazard is so close and can be so damaging.
Sources that may cause serious burn injuries include:
- Faulty wiring (electrocution)
- Open flames
- Hot surfaces
- Hazardous chemicals
- Unstable combustible materials
- Extended exposure to the sun

Degrees of Burn Injuries
The value of your claim will depend almost-entirely on the severity of
your burn injury and how much it debilitates you in your day-to-day life. Allow
our team to review your medical records and we can determine the degree classification
of your burn. From there, we can consult with medical experts and figure
out how long you will require treatment for the injury, ultimately establishing
how much compensation you will need now and for the rest of your life.
The various degrees are:
First: Redness and sensitivity on the skin; generally does not require medical
attention, only first aid.
Second: Skin may thicken, blister, and redden; lingering pain; requires medical
attention to heal quickly and properly.
Third: Whitening of flesh and inability to move the affected area without extreme
pain; numbness in the area when still; medical attention is a must.
Fourth: Blackening of the skin as the burn goes deep into muscles, nerves, and
bone; area may never fully recover and can require amputation.
Fifth and sixth: Catastrophic burns; considered fatal even with immediate treatment.
