Burn injury is one of the worst types of injury a person can sustain. Not only is the pain from burns excruciating, but the disfigurement that often results can be emotionally challenging as well.
Heat burns can happen anywhere there is a source of ignition. Auto accidents involving damage to the gas tank are volatile scenarios where explosion is possible. Chemical burns can happen if dangerous products are not properly labeled or stored away. Electrical burns happen when wires are left exposed or wiring is done improperly. If you are caught in a fire on another’s property, was it negligent or careless behavior that started the fire?
At Shelnutt & Varner, it is our duty to find out what actions led to the unsafe situation and caused you or your loved one’s burn injuries. Was a light socket overloaded, a candle left burning, or a gas leak present? Did the fire spread rapidly due to the presence of an unsafe, flammable material or chemical? Our investigative team will dig deep to provide you with answers and to find out who is responsible for the life-altering burn injuries your family is facing. Please call 256-547-4988 for a free consultation to discuss your case at our office.
