Championing for clients’ rights since 1926

A serious burn injury can devastate your life and the lives of the people you love. When someone else’s negligence causes your injury, you deserve compensation. Located in Biloxi, Corban • Gunn • Van Cleave Law Firm provides exemplary representation to injury victims throughout the Gulf Coast and across Mississippi. Our attorneys recognize that severe burn injuries can cause long-term physical and emotional pain. In addition to disfigurement and scars, you might suffer from psychological trauma. Our awarding-winning legal team can provide you with an honest case assessment today.

Causes of burn injuries

Many serious burns occur on oil rigs and construction sites. However, car, truck and motorcycle accidents can also cause deep tissue burns. The type of treatment you receive depends on the severity of your injury. Second- and third-degree burns penetrate the epidermis and cause serious damage to muscle, tissue and bone. As highly experienced personal injury lawyers, we at Corban • Gunn • Van Cleave Law Firm work tirelessly to help burn victims injured in the following types of accidents:

  • Chemical fires — Chemical fires are especially hazardous because they are often difficult to extinguish and can release toxic smoke. Although commonly seen in the construction industry, chemical fires can occur wherever flammable substances are used.
  • Electrical fires — Electrical fires also frequently happen on construction sites. If electrical wiring is not properly installed, a fire may occur before or even after construction is completed.
  • Automotive fires — Most motor vehicles on the road today run on gasoline. In the event of an accident, the fuel tank of a car, truck or motorcycle may be ruptured, resulting in an explosion and/or fire.

Why you need a lawyer

Severe burn injuries can be life threatening and life changing. Survivors of automotive, electrical, chemical and other types of fires may suffer catastrophic injury, disfigurement and nerve damage. Rehabilitative treatment often lasts a lifetime at an enormous cost. If the wrongful conduct of another person or party caused your injuries, our firm is ready to fight aggressively for your right to compensation. If successful, and depending on the circumstances of your case, a personal injury lawsuit can provide you with compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, and present and future medical expenses.
