Severe Burn Injuries Can be Negligent

Most of us never have to endure the suffering of severe burns. The pain and damage left behind are excruciating, and many victims never recover full function again. In severe cases, death can result either from the burns or from an infection that sets in so easily on burned skin. When you have a loved one with serious burns or who has lost their life due to negligent burns, you need a law firm to provide experienced, determined and compassionate help.

Burn Injury Lawsuits Have Many Causes

There are many ways a person gets burned, either accidentally or through negligence, that can result in a lawsuit. Car accidents, house fires and chemical burns are just a few. When a serve burn injury occurs, you need a qualified lawyer to determine who is at fault and what compensation is due.

The lifelong effects of severe burns are both physical and emotional. Burns are deeply painful and often leave massive scarring. This scarring is not only devastating cosmetically, but very often affects the nerves, tendons and muscles in ways that never heal properly. The injuries can cause a lifetime of suffering and medical needs for the victim.

In addition to the medical expenses and the physical pain that results from severe burns, a person can be left emotionally and psychologically scarred, requiring extensive care and counseling. Finally, the loss of income due to injuries, surgeries and lasting damages can be considerable.

Severe burn injuries can come from many different sources in our home and work life. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Dangerous workplace injuries, industrial accidents or product safety violations
  • Apartment building fires, including lack of fire extinguishers or inadequate fire exits
  • Recreational fires
  • Poor wiring and electrical accidents
  • Defective products that are combustible
  • Fuel that is stored unsafely, such as propane gasoline or diesel
  • Scalding pipes or water
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Explosions

Burn injuries and causes vary on a case-by-case basis, so the only way to know if you have a case that can bring compensation is to discuss the details with an experienced burn injury lawyer.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
