Cosse Law Firm New Orleans Fire and Expl

fire & explosion injuries

While many people don’t believe they are at risk for a fire or burn injury, the truth is these accidents can happen to anyone at any time, and they can have devastating, life-changing consequences.  Victims of fire and burn injuries suffer physically and psychologically, enduring pain and disfigurement, leaving them with lost wages and massive medical bills.  In addition, fire and burn injuries are often due to negligence, leaving victims tormented with the realization that the accident that changed their lives forever may have easily been prevented.

You need an experienced lawyer to handle your burn and fire injury cases.  Trust Cossé to treat your case like it’s our only case.

At Home & Beyond

A landlord who doesn’t follow fire-safety rules. A store, restaurant or hotel that isn’t up to code. A defective product that ironically may have been designed to protect you. These are just a few of the examples of negligent sources that might cause life-altering burn or fire injuries. Negligible parties should be held accountable. Unfortunately, however, many burn victims who try to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other losses, end up battling insurance adjusters, landlords and lawyers who try to minimize the severity of the injury and the claim.

At Work On Land & At Sea

There are plenty of workplace hazards, and, depending on your job, burn injuries may even be commonplace.  Refineries, chemical plants and construction sites are just a few of the locations replete with burn and fire injures. Employees who suffer from a burn injury not only face physical pain but also are forced to figure out a complicated workplace system designed to limit payouts and benefits. Suddenly an accident that was not your fault is now forcing you to make decisions about complicated issues you know nothing about that will affect your future. If you file workers compensation, which may provide wage replacement and medical benefits, you then forfeit your right to sue your employer for pain and suffering, loss of life, disfigurement and other damages often accompanying a burn injury.

Oil Rig Explosions

Even though surrounded by water, fire is the greatest concern on an oil rig.  A single spark can cause a fire or explosion, harming the employees on it, and sometimes even sinking the rig.  When oil platform explosions happen, employees endure catastrophic injuries, including burns.  Additionally, victims are forced to confront big oil companies that have endless means and extensive legal teams.

 

In all of these situations, you need a lawyer who can provide you with experience and guidance as well as compassion and support.  Look no further than Cossé Law Firm.  We have won XXX dollars in personal injury cases specifically dealing with burn and fire injuries.  Whether we are dealing with a careless landlord or a negligent oil company, we are fully equipped to get you the money you need to cover your medical expenses, help provide for your family, and allow you to rebuild your life.
