BURN INJURIES ATTORNEY

BURN INJURIES ATTORNEY

Have you or a loved one suffered serious burn injuries?

There are four main types of burns:

  • Thermal burns – caused by contact with fire, steam, hot liquids, or other sources of extreme heat
  • Light burns – caused by  sunlight or  ultraviolet light
  • Chemical burns – caused by an acid, alkali, or chemical explosion
  • Radiation burns – caused by contact with nuclear radiation

There are three categories of burn severity:

  • First-degree burns – only the top layer of skin is damaged. First-degree burns are characterized by redness, minor inflammation. These burns cause minimal damage, and usually heal within a week. They can often  be treated with aloe vera gel and cool water – not with ice!
  • Second-degree burns –  damage goes beyond the top layer of skin. Second-degree burns are characterized by extremely red, blistered skin. These burns may take weeks to heal, and should be properly bandaged.
  • Third-degree burns – The worst type of burn, damage extends through all layers of skin and can affect organs and bones. Third-degree burns are characterized by a white or black dry wound, and charring. Third degree burns can cause permanent nerve damage, hypothermia, and even death, so seek emergency medical treatment immediately.

BURN INJURIES

When a burn injury occurs, the immediate concern pertains to the shock and blood loss involved. It is also critical to do whatever can be done to prevent infection. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the broken skin. For the long-term, burn injuries can impact nearly every aspect of the victim’s life. Depending on the location and severity of the burn, the individual may feel a lack of self-esteem. Of course, the medical bills must be taken into account when discussing the impacts of a burn injury. Depending on possible treatment options, this may require multiple hospital visits until you reach the desired result. The person responsible for the injury should be liable for the monetary damages you face. This is why filing a personal injury claim during this time is so crucial. It can help you get the evidence you need to prove negligence in the matter and move forward with confidence.

HEAD INJURY LAWYER

A brain injury is a catastrophic injury from which victims literally can never fully recover. Unlike most body tissues, the brain can’t regenerate its cells. Once cells are damaged or connections between them are broken, the functions they perform are simply lost unless the brain can learn to perform them in new ways. Victims may have permanent problems with their movement, senses, emotions or cognitive abilities, or even changes in personality. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.4 million Americans sustain some kind of traumatic brain injury every year, with about 235,000 requiring hospitalization and 50,000 more dying. Falls and car accidents are the most common causes of brain injuries, but these injuries can be caused by any blow to the head, including sports injuries and gunshot wounds. Thousands more sustain non-traumatic brain injuries because of disease, stroke or oxygen deprivation, sometimes due to medical malpractice. About 5.3 million people in the United States — two percent of our population — need permanent, daily help with everyday tasks because of a brain injury.

UBER/LYFT ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Uber and Lyft are both major companies now worth billions of dollars; as such, they ensure that their drivers are covered by $1 million both in liability and in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. In comparison, many ordinary motorists carry only $15,000 in injury liability. The level of insurance covering Uber and Lyft means that those injured in an accident where they are not at fault may be able to obtain more complete compensation for the medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering following an accident. It’s important, therefore, to have the representation of a skilled Lyft or Uber accident lawyer who can obtain the best results possible. Lalezary Law Firm wants you to know that you may be due significant compensation if you are in one of the following categories: – A motorist or passenger injured in a collision where a ridesharing driver was at fault. – A ridesharing driver injured in an incident where another motorist was at fault. – An injured passenger in a ridesharing vehicle, regardless of which driver is at fault
