Doctor wrapping up burn injury

The Bayou City is a great place to live, work, and play. However, the fast-paced Houston lifestyle can also expose you to all sorts of injury risks, including burn injuries. Burn injuries can arise from a variety of situations — everything from electrical incidents and chemical exposures to vehicle accidents and more. 

When another’s negligent actions or product defect causes you to suffer a burn injury, you’re entitled to compensation. A burn injury claim provides a means of covering your medical expenses, therapy costs, lost income, and other damages.

However, filing a burn injury claim and making a strong case requires the support of an experienced burn injury attorney. Hernandez Sunosky LLP is here to help. We will fight for your rights and seek just compensation on your behalf.

Burn injuries can cause severe physical pain, lasting emotional distress, and disruption to daily life. It’s easy to feel lost as you grapple with the trauma and mounting medical bills. But you don’t have to face this journey alone. Contact Hernandez Sunosky LLP today. 

What Constitutes a Burn Injury Claim

A burn injury claim is a civil suit that seeks damages when a product defect or another’s negligence causes burn-related injury, pain, and suffering. You can seek compensation for: 

  • Medical expenses 
  • Therapy or surgical costs
  • Lost income 
  • Pain and suffering 

It does not stop there, though. You could potentially seek damages for many other kinds of costs as well.

Do I Have a Claim?

Many factors are at play when you file a burn injury claim. However, one of the key aspects of any claim involves proving someone acted negligently or that a product defect contributed to your injury. 

An experienced Houston burn injury lawyer from the Hernandez Sunosky LLP team will evaluate the unique circumstances of your case. Then, we will outline your next steps and help you determine the best path forward.
