Burn injuries can happen when a person’s tissues are contacted by chemicals, radiation, sunlight, heat or electricity. Some common causes of burn injuries include building fires, hot liquids, flammable liquids, steam, and flammable gases. Burn injuries frequently also happen because of excess smoke inhalation. Additionally, burn injuries often happen when cases involve defective products. Burn injuries also are divided into categories based on the severity of the injury. First-degree burns cause damage to the outermost layer of the skin. Second-degree burns can cause damage to both the outer layers of your skin and the layers under that. The worst type of burns, those unfortunate third-degree burns, damage or destroy the deepest layers of your skin and all the underlying tissue layers.
To get you damages for you or your loved one’s burns, using legal theories involving negligence, you must prove it is more likely than not that the person or entity who caused your burns acted carelessly. Texas negligence standards and law apply to almost every injury action. This law requires you to first offer sufficient proof that any of the possible defendants owed you a “duty of care” and that one or more of the defendants didn’t meet those standards. A “duty of care” situation requires that defendants use the same kind of skill and ordinary care that a hypothetical “reasonable person” would conform to in a substantially similar situation. After establishing a breach of this standard by a defendant, you must offer admissible proof that the breach, by that defendant, directly caused your injury. Simply put, you must offer admissible proof that your injury would not have happened except for a defendant’s breach of the “standard of care.”Getting Compensation for Injuries due to Burns
Lastly, you must offer admissible evidence of your damages that you suffered because of a defendant’s breach. In a burn case, victims often experience painful wounds to their body and skin. These injuries frequently require hospitalization. Sadly, some burn injuries leave scars. Some leave other visible evidence of disfigurement. In many cases, plastic surgery will not completely erase all the visible evidence of the suffering have been through. Because of these lasting and deep injuries, many burn victims can recover damages and compensation for many different types of damages. These can include lost wages, medical expenses, long term care, physical therapy and loss of earning capacity. In many cases, a family member of the burn victim may be entitled to damages for lost consortium, which compensate them for the family member’s lost support from their loved one, lost companionship from their loved one because of the injury.
