Louisiana Burn Injury Attorneys Serving Shreveport Burn Victims

In 2020, the City of Shreveport reported 1,150 total fires. Many of these fires lead to serious injuries and property damage that left victims in a large amount of financial debt. If you were injured in a burn injury accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your losses.

When you contact the Louisiana lawyers at Carabin Shaw, you can discuss your case and receive the advice of an expert on what legal options may be available to you. We at Carabin Shaw have included below who our burn injury attorneys in Shreveport can help and what services we can provide.

Burn Victims Carabin Shaw Can Help

A burn injury attorney evaluates many different aspects of a burn injury accident to determine eligibility. Some of the considerations include:

Severity of Burn

A Shreveport personal injury lawyer can provide representation for first-degree, second-degree, and third-degree burns. The medical community categorizes these degrees as:


A first-degree burn is the least severe, only affecting the outer epidermis. It causes redness and irritation, but not to the point of blistering.


A second-degree burn damages the epidermis and the next layer of skin, the dermis. The burn will cause blistering and can lead to long-term scarring.


A third-degree burn completely destroys the epidermis and dermis. The burn requires substantial medical intervention, such as skin-grafts and the use of specialized burn baths.

Type of Burns

A Shreveport burn victim can receive representation for any type of burn accident. Although many people think solely of thermal burns, there are many types of burns that occur regularly in everyday life and in the workplace. Burn injury attorneys in Shreveport can represent:

  • Thermal Burns
  • Radiation Burns
  • Chemical Burns
  • Electrical Burns
  • Friction Burns
  • Cold Burns
Work Burns If your accident occurred at work and you were offered Workers’ Compensation, then you would only be able to file a claim against a third-party, such as another employee, a private contractor, a manufacturer, etc. Louisiana law requires nearly all employees to carry Workers’ Compensation coverage, so if you were not offered Workers’ Compensation, you should contact a Shreveport personal injury lawyer.
