Not only one of the most painful injuries one can endure, burns can cause long-term disfigurement, lead to infections, nerve damage, and more. Did you suffer a burn in Charleston County? If so, you may have legal options.
Our Charleston burn injury lawyer from Louthian Law Firm, P.A. can advocate for you. Since 1959, we have secured compensation and justice for thousands of injured South Carolinians. We offer free case reviews so we can learn about your situation and explain how our team can help.
When you bring your case to Louthian Law Firm, P.A.:
We offer free, no-obligation case reviews to every person who calls us. Do not feel intimidated by this process we simply have a discussion where you can share your story with our team, and then we explain your legal options.
During your case review, you can:
We want to know everything about your situation, so we can implement a course of action that brings a positive resolution to your case.
Every burn injury claim needs one crucial thing: evidence. The more information we have to support your claim, the better.
Therefore, we may find and use:
Information like this can support your legal right to damages.
As the American Bar Association explains, we must prove negligence to recover compensation.
This involves showing:
If a defective product burned you, we must draw a connection between the product’s usage and your injuries. We do not have to prove negligence.
The at-fault party may have insurance. For example, if a car accident burned you, South Carolina requires all motorists to carry liability insurance. In that instance, you could file a claim with the at-fault driver’s policy.
However, not all insurance companies want to settle. The liable insurer may throw up roadblocks, hoping you will drop your case. That’s where our burn injury lawyers come in.
Our team can also protect you against unscrupulous insurance tactics, such as pressuring you to accept a lowball settlement or making a recorded statement they can use against you.
We hope to resolve your case through insurance negotiations. However, sometimes this is not possible. Do not worry, we can file a lawsuit and hold the at-fault party accountable in court.
Representing you in a lawsuit involves:
We implement customized legal strategies for each case we manage. Your goals are our goals. We want to recover everything you need to make a full recovery.
As you explore your legal options for financial recovery, consider that:
You may have to file a lawsuit to recover compensation, which means you must comply with all statutory deadlines. Per South Carolina law, you generally have three years to file an injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
The court system refuses to hear cases filed outside this three-year window. Consult a lawyer promptly, as doing so could protect your right to seek damages.
Louthian Law Firm, P.A. represents injured people on contingency, which means:
We want to make legal help accessible to every burn victim in South Carolina. You do not have to stress about affording our services instead, give our team a call and focus on feeling better.

With our injury team on your side, you can:
Partner with Louthian Law Firm, P.A., and we can fight for everything you need to make the best possible recovery.
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences notes that electricity, steam, heat, chemicals, and radiation are the leading causes of burn injuries.
These can arise from:
If another party caused your burn injury, regardless of how it occurred, you can hold them liable for your losses.
Our firm has 80+ years of combined legal experience, so we are very familiar with South Carolina law and Charleston’s legal system. We aim to resolve your case through a claim or lawsuit.
Awarded compensation may cover:
Your recoverable healthcare expenses may include:
Your medical needs after a burn injury should not jeopardize your finances. Our lawyers can pursue the responsible party for your treatment costs.
Whether you work part-time or full-time, you can pursue your lost income, such as:
A burn injury can greatly impact your career. For instance, third-degree burns can forever impair your mobility. A burn may prevent you from working at your current job or any physically demanding job, like construction.
Damages for loss of future earning capacity can reimburse you for any harm to your future earning power.
You may pursue compensation for pain and suffering if:
South Carolina does not limit how much you can pursue for pain and suffering, so you may recover exactly what you need without an imposed limit.
Our hearts go out to you and your family if you lost a loved one. We understand how burn injuries can quickly take a person’s life.
Our wrongful death lawyers serving Charleston can fight for:

Our team can manage your burn injury claim and fight for the compensation you deserve.
During your free case review, we can evaluate the specifics of your case and affirmatively answer this question.
In general, you can pursue damages if you suffered harm because of another party, including multiple types of burn injuries
You may have other injuries in addition to burns. For instance, if you suffered a road rash, you may have broken bones or a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Whatever the situation may be, our team can help.
Absolutely not! Your Charleston burn injury lawyer can seek the best possible settlement for your situation. You have the final word when accepting any settlement. But you do not have to accept an unfair offer we can keep negotiating for what you need.
Every case progresses differently. Some resolve in a matter of days, while others can take months or even years. How long your case will take depends on your situation. Your lawyer can combat any challenges that prevent your case from moving forward.
Taking these measures could help protect your right to compensation:
Take pictures of your injuries throughout your recovery period. Also, write down the names of your prescribed medications. You want to show the insurer that because you suffered harm, you deserve damages.
Keep any case-sensitive information between you and your lawyer. If you share anything about your case on social media, it becomes a public record. A claims adjuster could access that information and use it to contest your case.
The insurance company may ask you for a recorded statement. Giving a statement does not benefit you it’s not even necessary. The insurer hopes that by giving a recorded statement, you will somehow refute your case. For instance, you might admit some fault for the incident or downplay your injuries while putting on a brave face.
Your lawyer can handle all communications with the insurance company. Once you have legal help, you do not have to communicate with any other parties.
It’s one thing to seek medical care immediately after getting hurt. Following and finishing your treatment plan is also essential. You want to show the insurance company that you did everything possible to better your condition. Otherwise, they could question the severity of your injuries.
