Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are rated by the depth of the burn. The deeper the burn is, the more severe the damage to the skin and underlying tissue. Usually, burn injuries are labeled in “degrees.” So, burns are listed as ‘first degree’ burn, ‘second degree’ burn, ‘third degree’ burn, etc. The higher the degree, the more severe the burn injury, with third and fourth degree burns actually burning all layers of skin. In some cases, these extreme burn injuries actually burn the muscle and down to the bone.

As an experienced burn injury law firm, the Neal Law Office has represented victims of burn injuries since 1996. Burn injuries are devastating ordeals that cause immeasurable pain and suffering, tremendous amounts of medical care and expenses, and require extraordinary lengths of time for recovery. The Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctor’s Hospital in Augusta, Georgia is the Southeast’s premiere hospital for burn cases and burn injuries. Mr. Neal has represented several Burn Center patients with varying case law dealing with medicine-related chemical burns, gas explosion burns, electrical shock burns, and fire-related burns.

Chemical Burn Injury

Chemical burns typically occur because of contact with caustic chemical compounds such as various acids and bases. Chemical burns can be tremendously severe. If you think you have a chemical burn due to chemical exposure, wash the area of thoroughly with water and seek immediate medical attention at the nearest burn center or medical facility or call 911.
Electrical Burn Injury

Electrical burns are frequently caused from defective electrical wiring, electrical outlets, or defective electrical products or tools but also occur from natural causes, such as lightning. If you have been injured by an electrical burn, douse the area with water to cool and seek immediate medical attention at the closest burn center or medical facility or call 911 for help.
Other Burn Injuries

Burn injuries come from a variety of sources, not just chemical or electrical burns. Here are some other cases we have seen.

Defective products, like a hair dryer whose temperature was too hot and burned a victim
Auto accidents, such as cars catching fire, exploding, or contact with hot car parts where sufficient protection was not built in
Construction accidents, like burns from scalding materials such as adhesives or hot tar
Explosions, such as factory-related burns and injuries from super-heated gas vents or other chemical-related burns

Neal Law’s Successful Burn Case in 2011

Mr. Neal represented the surviving daughter of a woman who suffered severe burn injuries and spent 3 months in the Joseph M. Still burn center recovering from catastrophic burns, incurring nearly $4,000,000 in medical bills, following a water heater explosion in her home. The burn victim died six months later from infections related to her severe burn injuries. Mr. Neal filed suit and litigated this severe burn case against Atlanta Gas Light Co. for two years, and obtained a substantial confidential settlement for the victim’s surviving daughter.
