Workplace Burn Injuries

Despite numerous safety measures and regulations, burns in the workplace account for a significant proportion of all burns, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. U.S. work-related fires and explosions account for more than 5,000 burn injuries each year.

When an employee suffers a burn injury at work, they may be eligible for workers' compensation. This insurance provides employees who were injured on the job with wage replacement and medical benefits. However, the benefits offered by an injured worker’s employer may not be sufficient in cases of severe burn injuries.

In this case, the worker may choose to file a suit against a third party such as a subcontractor or product manufacturer to seek damages that may help to supplement their workers' compensation benefits. This is where our burn injury lawyers come in. They have experience handling both workers' compensation and third party claims involving accidents due to chemical plant explosions, refinery fires, and construction site accidents.

How We Handle Paducah Burn Injury Claims

Your burn injury attorney will determine if you have a valid claim for damages under Kentucky law. In handling your case, your attorney may do the following:

  • Gather all relevant evidence, including fire department reports, police records, and photographs of the scene of the accident
  • Review medical records and reports that have been prepared by your treating physicians
  • Work with medical experts to evaluate the extent of your injuries and the costs associated with any necessary future medical procedures or rehabilitation services
  • Retain safety inspectors, electricians, or accident investigators to help establish the cause of the accident and determine who may be held liable for your injuries

Personal Injury Burn Settlements

In some cases, our Paducah burn injury attorneys are able to secure a settlement before a burn injury lawsuit goes to trial. Many times, insurance companies offer insubstantial settlements that do not fully compensate a burn injury victim for all the damages they have suffered.

If settlement negotiations do not result in an adequate settlement offer, our lawyers have the capabilities and resources to take your case to trial. We will never accept an unfair settlement just because it’s easy. Our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are experienced trial lawyers and are prepared to go to court to fight for the compensation you need.

Noneconomic Damages: In many burn injury lawsuits, victims receive compensation for damages due to pain and suffering. Such damages are intended to compensate a burn injury victim for the physical pain and mental anguish that was caused by the accident. A burn injury victim may also receive financial compensation for any disfigurement caused by the injury.
