Do I Have a Burn Injury Case? Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

The Tulsa Oklahoma Fire Department has stated that they have previously responded to over 180 calls in a single day, ranging from residential fires, commercial building fires, workplace chemical burns, and more. Many of these burn accidents leave victims with serious injuries and enormous medical debt.

If you have been injured in a burn accident, the Oklahoma injury lawyers at Carabin Shaw can help. We offer a completely free initial consultation, during which you can discuss your accident with an expert at no cost.

After a burn injury accident, many victims are unsure if their circumstances may qualify for legal action and wonder, “do I have a burn injury case?” To help you answer this question, we have provided information on the qualifications for a burn injury claim.

How to Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case

Burn injury attorneys in Tulsa OK must be able to prove negligence in order to recover compensation for your injury from a third party. To accomplish this, a personal injury attorney must prove four specific criteria in court:

  1. The third party was responsible for providing you with a duty of care. This can mean different things, ranging from a business owner keeping all wiring maintained to a personal protective equipment manufacturer selling a functional product.
  2. The third party did not provide you with the duty of care.
  3. You received an injury during the accident that caused bodily and financial damage.
  4. The third party’s failure to provide the duty of care was the direct cause of your injury.

If you believe our Tulsa personal injury lawyers can provide evidence for these criteria, then you may have grounds for filing a burn injury claim. When you contact a personal injury attorney, they can help you further understand the applicability of your accident’s circumstances and any exceptions that could apply.

Workplace Burn Injuries

Burn accidents that occur at work are subject to specific laws that can limit a burn victim’s options in filing a personal injury claim. Tulsa Oklahoma has a “no-fault” workers’ compensation system, in which the employee can be granted workers’ compensation even if the accident was entirely or partially your fault.

If you are injured and your employer offers you workers’ compensation, then you would not be able to file a claim against your employer. Although you may still be able to file a claim against a third party, such as a contractor, another employee, a manufacturer, etc.

Types of Burns That Can Apply

A burn injury claim can be filed for any type of burn injury. When people think of burn injuries, they typically envision only thermal burns; however, burn injuries can occur from a variety of sources.

Some of the types of burns that burn injury attorneys in Tulsa OK could represent include:

  • Friction Burns
  • Chemical Burns
  • Electrical Burns
  • Radiation Burns
  • Cold Burns

Depending on the severity of the burn and the impact it has had on your life, a personal injury lawyer can argue for compensation for physical damage, emotional damage, and financial damage.
