What You Need to Know About a Potential Claim or Lawsuit

  1. Receive Medical Care

    The first and most important thing you should know is if you have suffered a burn injury, you should receive medical care. A burn injury, especially severe second-degree and third-degree burns, require professional care. Also, it is important to receive medical care because the official documentation and recommendations of a medical professional is essential information for personal injury attorneys in Austin to have when putting together a legal case.

  2. Determine Cause of the Injury

    After you have received medical care, you should determine the cause of the injury. If you are able to have a professional like a fireman or police officer provide you with official documentation of the cause, this would benefit your Austin burn injury attorney greatly. Establishing the cause of the accident helps determine who is responsible, which is vital in establishing liability.

  3. Find a Lawyer and Receive an Initial Consultation

    Not all personal injury lawyers can offer the same quality in service. For this reason, it is important to conduct research on the attorney and on the firm. Top-notch firms, like Carabin Shaw, will offer substantial experience, resources, and positive client reviews. Also, they will offer a completely free initial consultation, which allows you to contact the lawyer’s office and discuss your case without any financial obligation.

  4. Recover Damages

    Once you have contacted a personal injury attorney in Austin, your attorney can then begin the process of filing a claim and recovering damages. There are many different types of personal injury compensation that could potentially be recovered.

    Some of the most common types of compensation recovered in burn injury claims include:

    • Medical Costs
    • Lost Wages
    • Physical Disfigurement
    • Loss of Consortium
    • Pain and Suffering
    • Etc.

These are only a few of the potential types of compensation personal injury attorneys in Austin could help you recover. Contact an attorney today to discuss your full options.
