Burn Injury Lawyer

 If you've suffered a burn injury at work, you're likely experiencing overwhelming physical and financial setbacks.

A burn injury lawyer can build your case and help you secure the compensation you deserve in the aftermath of a burn injury.

The Shelton Law Firm in Houston, TX, has collected millions on behalf of victims injured on the job.

What Causes Burn Injuries?

Your workplace should be a place where you can feel confident you won't be injured. However, burn injuries often occur on the job due to a variety of factors, such as:

  • Defective products
  • Flammable materials
  • Explosions
  • Fires after a motor vehicle accident
  • Construction accidents
  • Building fires
  • Chemical burns

If your employer carries workers' comp insurance, your injury may qualify for those benefits. But in Texas, employers aren't required to carry this insurance. Even if your employer carries this insurance, your injury may be due to third-party negligence (such as a poorly designed piece of equipment), which would justify filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our Houston burn injury lawyer can represent you and help secure compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Diane's Story

After suffering burns from a natural gas explosion, Diane received help from Mr. Michael Shelton so she could focus on her recovery.
"We focus a significant portion of our personal injury practice on cases involving burn injuries. Over a million people seek medical attention for burns in the U.S. every year. All serious injuries can be traumatic, but burns are particularly devastating not only because of their pain and scarring, but because serious skin damage can easily lead to additional health complications." Mr. Michael Shelton

Why the Degree Matters

Depending on the severity of your burn, your losses, medical expenses, and healing journey will be different. For example, third- and fourth-degree burns often require years of recovery and multiple surgeries. Chemical burns and electrical burns often cause damage to the inside of the body, even if there is minor skin damage. Because of this, severe burns often justify more compensation than minor injuries.

Hear From Our Personal Injury Attorney Advocating for Victims Since 1974

If you have been injured in an explosion or pipeline accident, burn injury attorney Michael E. Shelton can help. He has also represented burn victims who were injured in motor vehicle accidents or as a result of a defective product. These types of injuries are considered catastrophic and can have life-long effects.

When To Contact Our Houston Attorney

If you've suffered a serious burn in an accident, seeking immediate medical attention is absolutely crucial. Once you are safely under a doctor's care, it is then important to seek advice from a trusted and established personal injury lawyer.

Your burn injuries in a pipeline, construction, refinery, or industrial accident can cause you and your family to struggle with lost income, medical expenses, and emotional pain and suffering. Although you may be legally entitled to compensation, you won't actually collect unless you are able to reach a settlement or win a court case. Both of these avenues are incredibly difficult without the help of a lawyer.

Our Houston law firm understands the lasting physical and emotional effects a burn injury can have on a person. Let us be the ones to fight for you.

"If a negligent third party is responsible for your workplace injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Houston burn injury lawyer can represent you and secure compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more."
