New Orleans Burn Injury Lawyers

Representing Workers With Burns - Toll Free: 1-888-708-8950 - Free Consultations

Explosions, electrocutions, and chemical exposure are just some of the hazards found at an industrial setting or oil rig. These types of accidents may occur without warning, leaving workers unable to evacuate or prepare for the worst, as was seen with the explosions and ultimate destruction of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf. If you have sustained a burn injury in an explosion, due to a chemical or from an electrocution, you need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.

Covington Electrocution and Chemical Burn Attorneys

With nearly years 35 of experience, our attorneys at Leger & Shaw in New Orleans are dedicated personal injury advocates. Regardless of the situation that resulted in a burn, it is important that the person responsible for your devastating burn injury is held responsible for his or her actions, or inactions. We strive to help clients who have suffered burns in an oil rig explosion, sustained a chemical burn from toxic exposure, been electrocuted on the job, or burned in another type of workplace fire. Our firm is dedicated to helping you recover compensation for the physical, financial, and emotional losses that you have suffered.

Many different factors are considered when determining the severity of a burn, including:

  • Victim's age
  • Burn size
  • Degree of the burn
  • Percentage of the body affected by the burn
  • Depth of the burn
  • Bodily location of the burn
  • How it affects a person's ability to work or perform daily tasks

Scarring After a Burn and Resulting Disability Lawsuits

After the initial burn is addressed and treated, the scarring begins to take place. Unfortunately, scars can be painful and require years of medical attention. Many plastic surgeries may be required in order to deal with the physical appearance of the scarring. We are not only dedicated to pursuing compensation for the injuries you have suffered and medical bills you have already incurred, but those you may incur in the future.

In addition to handling burn injury cases that result from an industrial accident or oil rig explosion, our firm also represents clients who sustained burns in a motor vehicle accident or other personal injury situation.
