When a Louisiana truck accident, oil rig explosion or some other accident causes a burn injury, the burn injury victim will likely face multiple skin grafts while suffering lung problems, sensitive scars, loss of sweat glands and the pain of life-threatening infections. If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, it isn’t fair for you to suffer in silence. We understand that you face a lifetime injury that is physically and psychologically debilitating, and we will make sure the opposing attorneys, insurance companies and jury understand this, too. We bring personal injury lawsuits for individuals suffering from burn injuries caused by:
- Electrical burns
- Explosions, including car accident explosions and gas tank explosions
- Radiation burns
- Burns from steam and hot liquids (scald burns)
- Inhalation of smoke and toxic chemicals
- Chemical burns
We also bring wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of clients who lost a family member to a fire, explosion or other tragedy.
Not Offered a Fair Settlement? We’ll Fight for You in Court.
Our attorneys are not afraid of the courtroom. We have brought personal injury cases to court since 1975 because we do not believe in accepting unfair settlements. Insurance companies know that we are not willing to settle for anything less than a fair settlement. This may include compensation for your medical treatment, loss of wages and payment for your pain and suffering.
Burn Injuries Caused by Explosions
On April 20, 2010, an explosion on the Transocean Deepwater Horizon oil drilling platform severely burned several people and likely killed nearly a dozen workers. While this incident was highly publicized, burn injuries from oil rig explosions and fires are not uncommon. Our Louisiana burn injury lawyers have experience handling burn injuries caused by explosions on offshore oil rigs, vessels, barges, drill sites and more.
