There are many types of burn injuries that a person can experience, ranging from first-degree to third-degree. Sometimes it can happen in the workplace. Burns can results from different things including chemical burns, electrical burns and burns from something that caught fire. If you’re the victim of a burn injury in the workplace, you’ll want to contact our burn injury lawyer right away.
Often times, workplace burns are avoidable. While first-degree burns and some second-degree burns may be treatable on your own, severe second-degree burns and third-degree burns have to be treated by a medical professional. Also, if you’ve been burned in any way, it’s always best to visit a doctor, since you may not realize the severity of your burn or know the proper treatment for it.
If you feel that you were injured because of the negligence of your supervisor, employer, or because of anyone who was in charge of your workplace safety, you’ll want to speak with our personal injury lawyer. You may have a personal injury case if any of the following occurred:
• There was a defective product that led to you getting burned.
• A person who was employed by either a vendor or a subcontractor somehow caused the incident that led to the burn.
• Your employer, project manager, architect, engineer, or other employer, was negligent, resulting in the burn.
It’s also important to realize that even if everyone did follow the right procedures to prevent workplace burns, a burn injury lawyer may still be able to get you the compensation you deserve. Our burn injury attorney may be able to obtain a workers’ compensation settlement to help you with your losses. You’ll be able to pay off medical bills, get money for time lost at work, as well as pain and suffering. Ultimately, burn injuries are complex, and you need a professional to help you determine if you have a legitimate claim.
