In our blog, we post stories on legal issues that are receiving a lot of current attention in the media and in legal circles.
Burn injuries – they are horrifying to experience and very painful to recover from. You may feel frustrated, angry and lost at what you can do to recover physically, emotionally and financially after a bad accident. However, if somebody else was responsible for your accident, or if a negligent company or employer is at fault, you need to hold them accountable.
- Burned in a Texas car wreck? The driver who caused the accident is responsible. Their insurance company should pay for your medical bills, compensate you for your injuries, and repay any wages you lose from being unable to work.
- Burned in an on-the-job accident in Texas? Thanks to federal and state workers’ compensation provisions, your employer’s insurance company will pay for your medical care. Keep in mind that you should see your own, independent doctor after a workplace accident – not a doctor on your employer’s payroll.
- Burned by an unsafe product or household appliance? The manufacturer who made the defective device, the company that created the unsafe design, or the company that distributed or sold it can be held responsible. A good unsafe product attorney can help you understand your rights and maximize your compensation after a defective product burn accident.
- Burned because somebody’s property was not safe? If you were on private or public property when you were burned, you may be able to hold the property owner responsible for your injuries. If there was a known safety issue or if proper maintenance was not done then you may be owed compensation for your injuries.
