New Orleans Burn Injury Lawyer for Help Recovering Compensation
Burn injuries can happen in a wide range of ways. They also vary widely in severity from superficial or relatively minor to higher degree burns that penetrate the skin, cause excruciating pain and can have a life-altering impact. Depending on the source and severity of the burn, it may require reconstructive surgery using skin grafts. A burn injury can also limit a person’s ability to earn a living and participate in everyday life. Without a New Orleans burn injury outlining your possible compensation, it may be impossible to make ends meet.
The New Orleans personal injury lawyers at Bloom Legal help people with burn injuries understand their legal rights and seek compensation from those responsible. We are experienced attorneys who fight tirelessly for the people that we represent.
New Orleans Burn Injury Attorney Explains Common Causes of Fire and Burns
Some of the most common burn injuries that we see at our firm involve the following types of accidents:
- Grease, hot liquid and cooking mishaps
- Kitchen equipment malfunctions
- Car, truck and motorcycle accidents
- Exposure to chemicals
- Electricity burns
- Construction and workplace accidents
- Defective or malfunctioning consumer products
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home neglect
- Violent or acid attacks
No matter how a burn occurs, it is vital to seek medical attention as soon as possible in order to minimize the injury. The onset of burn symptoms are typically immediate and can cause uncontrollable pain and disfigurement, as well as blisters, headaches, dizziness, difficulty breathing and seizures. Burns can also cause more subtle, long-term issues like emphysema and cancer.
Seeking Compensation After a Burn Injury
At Bloom Legal, you can work with a New Orleans burn injury lawyer to fight for full compensation available under the law.
The money damages often available in these cases includes compensation for current and future medical bills, as well as missed wages during your physical recuperation and to supplement any reduction in earnings caused by the injuries. When a person dies as a result of burn injuries, his or her family also has the right to seek similar compensation from wrongful death.
To get these damages, you have to be able to prove negligence. Product manufacturers, property owners and others owe various “duties of care” to consumers and other people that requires them to act in a generally reasonable manner. A person or entity that does not live up to that responsibility is likely to be deemed negligent and responsible for any injuries that happen as a result.
Although you may need to file a lawsuit to get money damages, our New Orleans burn injury attorney team has a proven track record of avoiding long court battles through negotiated settlement, if and when it is the best option for our clients.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say
"I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
