Birmingham Burn Injury Lawyers

When Do You Need a Burn Injury Attorney?

When Should You Hire a Burn Injury Lawyer?

Burn injuries are some of the most painful and disfiguring injuries imaginable. The physical and emotional pain after a burn injury is incredible. Beyond the physical scars, you’re left with emotional trauma that is impossible to quantify.

The burn injury attorneys at Pittman, Dutton, Hellums, Bradley & Mann understand the upheaval of life a burn injury can cause you and your family. Contact us today at (205) 322-8880.

What Are the Degrees of Burn Injuries?

Burn Injuries are classified into three categories:

  • First-degree burn: These burns involve the top layer of skin, and cause the skin to become red, swollen and painful to the touch.
  • Second-degree burn: These injuries involve the first two layers of skin. Signs of a second-degree burn include a deep reddening of the burn area, blisters, leaking body fluid, and potential skin loss.
  • Third-degree burn: These severe burns permanently destroy skin tissue. The skin may be painless, with the exception of nearby second and third-degree burn areas. The skin may be dry and leathery with burnt black and white patches.

Immediate medical attention is required for 2nd & 3rd-degree burns. The recovery process is often painful and long. You may require several skin graft surgeries to repair the damaged areas. Burns to limbs often require amputation. Burn victims may lose their ability to sweat requiring extreme lifestyle changes resulting in additional emotional trauma. If you have suffered a burn injury due to the negligence of others, legal representation is highly recommended.

I have nothing but great things to say about this firm. Initially I mostly spoke to Rebecca & she made me feel very comfortable in a stressful situation. Later many of my calls were with Jon Mann & he also spoke to me with respect & thoughtfulness. Kind of strange but a close bond between lawyers & a client but not only did we discuss the matter at hand but we would discuss our personal lives & the good & bad going on in my life & their concern for my health was comforting. I would definitely recommend this firm! Keep up the great work guys.

I feel very fortunate to have met this firm. During the first conference, my attorney made me feel totally at ease when sharing my situation with him.

My case was one that was a part of a nationwide claim. I researched and prayed for the appropriate attorney and I found that in Mike Bradley. While my case lasted, Mike and his assistant Karen stayed current and knowledgeable on the status and updates. I never once called or emailed that one of them didn't respond to me immediately. Mike would call to answer an email because he felt it would be more personal and efficient than typing. I highly recommend this firm.

I was very pleased with the work that Pittman, Dutton, Hellums, Bradley & Mann did for us. I had been injured in a car accident and was in quite a bit of pain for sometime. They always treated me like a person and not a case—never failed to return a call and kept us apprised of what was going on. I had a time when I had to be totally focused on recovery, they were able to take care of the situation and I didn’t have to worry about it. I owe this firm a lot of thanks.
