Burn Injury Lawyers in Louisiana, Mississippi & Tennessee
If you or a loved one experienced a life-altering or life-threatening burn injury because of someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim for compensation.
A legal settlement can’t erase the trauma, but it can provide a financial path forward from a serious injury.
For a burn injury, you could receive compensation for medical treatment, rehabilitation, future surgeries, or any other future medical costs or other expenses. This financial support helps you get your life back on steady ground.
Cases like this require a deep understanding of complex medical issues and personal injury law. Our attorneys bring this knowledge to help injured people in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
When you contact our offices in New Orleans or Gulfport (by appointment only), you’ll speak directly with a lawyer, not a non-lawyer staff member who “screens” your call.

Types of Burn Injuries
Contact with fire obviously causes burns. But there are other types of burns that can leave you with debilitating injuries, such as:
• Burns from contact with electricity
• Radiation burns (such as sunburns or other exposure to radiation)
• Burns from touching hot surfaces
• Acid or chemical burns
Chemical burns—also called caustic burns—come from contact with corrosive substances, possibly at home or at work. Because they can damage skin, eyes, the mouth or internal organs, chemical burns can be especially harmful and costly.
Burns also come in well-known levels of severity:
• 1ST DEGREE BURNS: Mild burns to the outer skin surface
• 2ND DEGREE BURNS: A burn that reaches the layer of skin under the surface and causes redness, swelling and blistering
• 3RD DEGREE BURNS: Full damage to two layers of skin, which might not hurt because nerve cells are damaged
• 4TH DEGREE BURNS: Damage that reaches muscles, tendons and bone, and can be fatal
If your injury resulted from someone else’s reckless behavior, you don’t have to just absorb the pain, suffering and costs.
You could be able to recover life-changing financial help.CONTACT US NOW!
