Burn Injury Cases We Handle
The Kemmy Law Firm has decades of combined experience working with injured clients, including those with burn injuries. We’re able to litigate all kinds of burn injury cases, caused by a wide range of accidents. Often burns are caused by auto accidents where there can be multiple injuries, including those of the spine, head, neck, and back. Burns may also be caused in house fires or chemical or electrical exposure at work.
Serious burns caused in the workplace or while performing your job should be covered by workers’ compensation. If a third party, such as a contractor, building owner or manager, acted negligently in causing the injury, a separate burn injury lawsuit could be filed against the responsible party.
If you’ve suffered significant burns in any of these types of accidents, retain experienced legal representation by attorneys who not only know about insurance, Texas law, and litigation but the medical and psychological issues that can come with a severe burn. The Kemmy Firm not only helps you obtain fair compensation, but we’re here to help get your life back on track.
Burn Injury Treatment
After initial first aid, if you have a severe burn you may receive water-based treatments (ultrasound mist therapy to clean and stimulate the wound tissue), fluids to prevent dehydration, pain and anxiety medications, burn creams and ointments, specialty wound dressings and drugs to prevent or treat infections.
Depending on the location of the burn, you may need help breathing, use a feeding tube, have incisions made to large burn scabs, get skin grafts (a surgical procedure where sections of healthy skin are used to replace the scar tissue caused by deep burns) and plastic surgery to improve the appearance of burn scars and increase the flexibility of joints affected by scarring.
Part of the treatment may be the use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) in a hyperbaric chamber. Given within the first 48 to 72 hours of a burn injury, HBO therapy increases the oxygen saturation in the body, which speeds up the recovery process.
