Why Do You Need a Burn Injury Lawyer?
Burn injuries can cause permanent damages to a survivor. From major scars to amputated limbs, your burns may have maimed you for life. In a case involving such a serious personal injury, protect your rights by hiring an attorney. Without a lawyer, an insurance company may try to undervalue your case, offer a too-low settlement, or even deny your claim outright. Don’t let an insurer take advantage of you. Retain an Albuquerque burn injury attorney to level the playing field between you and an insurance company during claim negotiations.
Types of Burns
Burn injuries come in three degrees depending on their severity. The most severe type of burn is one of the third degree. A third-degree burn penetrates the top and lower layers of the skin, often affecting deeper muscle tissue, tendons, or bones. Third-degree burns require emergency medical care and could be fatal.
Second-degree burns are also serious and require medical care. They may show blistering and leave scars. They affect the first and second layers of the skin, but not the underlying tissues. First-degree burns only require medical care if they cover larger areas of the body, or affect sensitive areas such as the face. They rarely blister or scar.
Who Can I Pursue for Damages?
New Mexico law allows you to pursue many parties for damages. We will investigate your burn injury accident and determine the most at-fault party/parties. This may be your employer, another driver, a product manufacturer, or many other entities. Then, we must prove that party’s fault for your incident to recover financial compensation.
