Beaumont Burn Injury Lawyer

Few injuries are as devastating as serious burn injuries. They are physically debilitating, and the scars may never go away. Medical treatment is also usually very expensive for burn injuries, between surgery costs and potentially a lifetime of therapy. If you are facing mounting medical bills from a burn injury, you might despair of ever paying off the debt. At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we understand these fears. Our Beaumont burn injury lawyers are dedicated to helping people like you get the compensation they need to recover from their injuries and return to the life they enjoyed before they were hurt.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

If you have suffered a serious burn injury, you might be eligible to file a personal injury claim against another party responsible for that injury. The Beaumont burn injury attorneys at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law will help you determine all your options during your free consultation.

But should you even contact an attorney in the first place? Here are some common scenarios where you might contact a burn injury lawyer in Beaumont.

Work Injuries

If you work in any setting where you are near open flames or electrical wiring, you may be at risk of suffering burns while at work. Your employer is responsible for ensuring that you are safe while doing your job. If they don’t provide proper safety training or safety equipment, you can potentially sue them when you suffer a work injury.

Our Beaumont burn injury lawyers will investigate the circumstances of your claim and determine whether you can file a lawsuit. If your employer offers workers’ compensation insurance, we may be able to get you compensation without having to worry about a lawsuit.

Premises Liability Claims

Another situation where you can suffer a burn injury is while at the property of another party. For example, if you spent the night in a hotel room and got burned because of a faulty light socket, the hotel would be responsible for that injury. If you suspect that someone else is at fault for the harm you suffered, contact our Beaumont burn injury attorneys right away.

Defective Products

Did you get burned because your toaster short-circuited or your hair dryer mysteriously caught on fire? That might have happened due to a product defect. Manufacturers are responsible for making safe products. If they don’t, you may be eligible for compensation. Our Beaumont burn injury lawyers will investigate whether you have a product liability claim.

Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents

Most cars, trucks, and motorcycles run on fuel, which is flammable. This means it can catch on fire in an accident, burning the passengers of the vehicle. If you were burned in any type of accident, contact a Beaumont burn injury attorney at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law immediately.

How a Burn Injury Attorney in Beaumont Can Help

We Focus on Getting You as Much Compensation as Possible

Many clients wonder if they even need a lawyer. Perhaps the insurance company has already offered them a settlement, or maybe their injuries don’t seem that bad. Also, some clients worry that a Beaumont burn injury lawyer will cost more than they get in compensation. While these are reasonable concerns, nearly all burn victims are better off consulting with a lawyer than not.

For starters, your initial consultation is free. During that consultation, a Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law burn injury lawyer will fully explain your legal options. We will determine whether you have a legitimate claim and approximately how much money you should be able to get. If you have already received a settlement offer from an insurance company, you can easily compare that offer to the value we assign your case. In the worst-case scenario, you decide that it isn’t worth pursuing your legal options and take the settlement offer. In the best-case scenario, you learn that your claim is worth much more than you realized. Either way, you are making an educated decision.

Consulting with a lawyer at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law allows you to make informed decisions at no cost to you.

If you do retain our services, know that people who are represented by an attorney usually get more money than those who aren’t, even after legal fees are deducted. This is primarily true because we understand the law and the financial consequences of burn injuries, allowing us to accurately estimate the value of a claim. Furthermore, we have experience investigating burn injury claims and collecting evidence that supports a case. This means you will usually have more robust evidence if you hire our lawyers than if you deal with the insurance company alone.

Finally, we have decades of experience negotiating settlements and arguing cases at trial. Insurance companies have an army of lawyers working on their side. By retaining an experienced personal injury law firm like Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, you put yourself on even footing with the insurance companies.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many different ways you may suffer a burn injury, which means no two cases are alike. This creates a lot of questions. At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we answer those questions as completely as possible. We believe an informed client is a happy client.

When should I see a doctor after a burn injury?

According to the Mayo Clinic, you should seek medical attention for any type of deep burn, burns that cover large areas of your body, or burns caused by something other than fire. However, even if a burn is relatively minor, if you think you might take legal action, you should get medical attention immediately to create records of the injury that your lawyer will need to litigate your case.

How long can I wait before filing a burn injury lawsuit?

In Texas, you can wait up to two years after suffering a burn injury to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. (*Always speak directly to an attorney to learn the exact deadlines that apply to your potential claims.) However, you shouldn’t delay before consulting with a lawyer. We may delay starting your case while waiting for you to recover, but we’ll never let the deadline for filing a lawsuit pass.

Can I get compensation if I have scars that prevent me from finding a romantic partner?

Yes. If your injury interferes with your quality of life, you can receive noneconomic damages for that suffering. Serious scars are one example of this. The inability to find a romantic partner is considered to be a significant decrease in quality of life. If you are facing permanent disfigurement, we will fight to get you large compensation to make up for this loss.

How much will a lawyer from Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law cost?

Our services are always offered on contingency. This means that we take a percentage of the money we obtain for you. The more money you get, the more money we get. If we fail to get you money, you won’t pay us a dime.

By answering your questions, we help you feel more confident about your case. If you have any more questions, ask during your free consultation.
