Severe burns could lead to much more than just pain. Burn injuries could lead to permanent scarring, changes in someone’s ability to take care of themselves, and how a person feels on a daily basis.

A Pueblo burn injury lawyer could be there for legal support if you sustained a serious burn because of another person’s negligence. A knowledgeable attorney could review your case and help you weigh your legal options for recovery.

Potential Causes of Burn Injuries

Thermal burns are one of the most common causes of these types of injuries. Any hot surface, such as a metal, liquid, or flames, can cause someone to suffer a thermal burn.

Other types of burns may include frostbite, radiation burns from the sun or x-rays, chemical burns from acids or detergents, and electrical burns from making contact with an electrical current. Friction burns are also common as they typically occur when someone slides across the pavement in either a motor vehicle accident or motorcycle wreck.

Severity of Burns

Medical professionals categorize burns based on varying degrees of severity. First-degree burns typically result in red skin, and although painful, usually do not result in scarring or serious injury. These injuries rarely requiring medical intervention, and could be treated with household remedies. Second-degree burns, however, may cause damage extending beyond the top layer of skin. These injuries typically result in blisters, and depending on the situation, may require some medical treatment.

Third-degree burns are some of the most severe injuries because they could affect every layer and result in charring of the skin. Medical treatment is almost always required to treat these burns, and someone may suffer permanent scarring or nerve damage. A Pueblo attorney could help determine how the severity of someone’s burn injury may affect the outcome of their case.

Potential Legal Theories to Use in a Case

In Pueblo, there are different legal doctrines and theories that a lawyer could base a burn injury case on to assist a claimant in seeking a positive outcome. For example, some cases may fall under the doctrine of vicarious liability. Vicarious liability allows plaintiffs to recover damages against their employer if a coworker caused them to suffer an injury as a result of their negligence. It is important to note, however, that this employee’s negligent misconduct must have occurred during the scope of their employment.

Negligence per se is another basis on which an individual may be able to pursue recovery. If a defendant’s violation of a statute caused the plaintiff to sustain a severe burn, this person may be liable to pay damages.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
