What causes burn injuries? 

Burn injuries occur from almost any type of accident. But, there are certain circumstances that may lead to burns rather than other physical injuries. Some examples include:

  • Smoke burns
  • Burns from fires
  • Chemical burns
  • Thermal burns
  • Steam burns

Premises Liability And Burn Injuries

A variety of accidents fall under different types of lawsuits that your attorney will have to prove in court. Generally, our attorneys have seen burn injuries come up in premises liability cases. Premises liability cases are those that hold a landowner accountable for their negligent actions. In order to prove a premises liability lawsuit that ends up in burn injuries, your experienced Las Vegas attorney must show:

  • The landlord was responsible for maintaining the property and making sure that it was safe from any fire dangers 
  • The landlord failed to take any safety measures, and it led to a fire danger
  • The fire then caused the victim to suffer burn injuries
  • The victim now has damages, such as medical bills, in order to treat the injuries

What are the different types of burn injuries?

In the medical field, burn injuries are categorized into three different types. Each category differs from one another depending on the severity of the burns, and the physical look of the burn. Usually, the more severe the burn, the more likely the victim will receive more in compensation compared to another burn injury victim who only suffered minor burns. The different categories of burns are:

  • First-degree burns: are considered to be the most mild burn in comparison to the other types of burns. A first degree burn only burns the first and top layer of the skin. The more layers the burn effects, the more severe it is and the higher degree. First degree burns require antibiotics, and time off work to heal from the injuries.
  • Second-degree burns: a second-degree burn is more painful than a first degree burn, and damages the deep tissue of the skin. Second-degree burns may result in disfigurement and permanent scarring. All second-degree burns will require some type of medical assistance.
  • Third-degree burns: this is the most severe type of burn, and all third degree burns will require constant medical attention. In certain cases, it may even result in amputation and disfigurement. Those with third-degree burns will live with those injuries for the rest of their life, and may even have to switch jobs if they are physically unable to move around like they used to prior to the accident.

What type of compensation can I receive for my burn injury lawsuit in Las Vegas?

  • Medical bills 
  • Past lost wages
  • Future lost income
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Prescription medication
  • At home medical equipment
  • At home medical care
  • Future physical therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages

Wrongful-Death and Burn Injuries

In the event that the burn injuries result in death, the deceased family member has the right to file a lawsuit against the defendant themselves. In a wrongful death lawsuit for burn injuries, not only could the victim’s family member recover compensation stated above, but they could also recover other expenses such as funeral expenses. 

What will our Las Vegas burn injury lawyers do?

  • We will investigate the circumstances of your accident to see exactly how the accident occurred. One of the hardest things to do in a lawsuit is gather enough evidence to prove liability. Oftentimes, the other party that the lawsuit is filed against will try to fight back and blame other parties for the incident. Our top rated attorneys have decades of experience handling burn injuries, and know exactly what to do to investigate a burn injury accident.
  • We will negotiate with the other party to make sure that all your financial burdens have been discussed, and we come to a settlement agreement that is fair for you. That is what sets us apart from other law firms.
  • In the event that a settlement with the other party is not reached, then your case may go to trial. Our trial attorneys have extensive experience in Nevada courts representing clients who have been injured from negligent parties.

Do I need a burn injury attorney in Las Vegas?

Generally, you do not need an attorney to represent you in Nevada courts. But, it is highly recommended that you have an attorney on your side in order to deal with all the necessary legal steps, and communicate with the other party. Keep in mind that you may not only be dealing with the other party, but you may also be dealing with insurance adjusters. They could get very tricky when determining who you are speaking with, especially if you are not represented by an attorney. Having an attorney will help ease the process while you take time to look after your own health. 

How much do our Las Vegas burn injury attorneys cost? 

Our burn injury attorneys work through a contingency fee, which means that you do not owe us a single dollar until we win a favorable outcome. A favorable outcome means a settlement amount, or a judgment from the Court. 

Give our burn injury attorneys a call today to discuss your Las Vegas accident. Keep in mind that with every type of lawsuit comes a specific time limitation on when you should file the lawsuit. When you file a lawsuit too late, you will risk losing your entire case and not even having the opportunity to bring it to court. The sooner you speak to our top rated attorneys, the easier it will be to seek damages and compensation from the at fault party.
