From house fires to faulty space heaters to chemical exposure, burns can happen in a variety of ways.

The attorneys at Slack Davis Sanger understand the complex nature of burn injuries and the overwhelming medical expenses that come with them. Our legal team has decades of experience helping clients recover compensation when they sustain burn injuries from:

  • House fires
  • Car accidents

  • Contact with hot objects
  • Electrocution
  • Defective appliances

Burn injuries fall into different categories depending on severity.

What are the different degrees of burn injuries?

The Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth attorneys at Slack Davis Sanger advocate for clients who have suffered any type of burn injury, including the following:

  • First degree. Affecting only the top layer of skin, a first-degree burn typically heals on its own within one to two weeks.
  • Second degree. A second-degree burn penetrates into the second layer of skin, the dermis. Patients will notice severe redness, blisters, and pain, as the burn affects the nerves in the skin.
  • Third degree. A very serious burn, symptoms include charred skin with the burn going into the subcutaneous tissue. Patients may not feel pain as the burn may kill the nerves. Patients may require skin grafts.
  • Fourth degree. A fourth-degree burn is often fatal, reaching the bone. The patient may require an amputation of the affected body part.

Our Texas attorneys can file a wrongful death claim on your behalf in the tragic event your loved one loses their life due to their burn injuries.
