Severe Burns

Texas Burn Injury Attorney

At Hampton & King, we understand what a serious or disfiguring burn injury can mean. Medical research has shown that victims of third-degree burns are likely to continue to require skin grafts or other surgery for nearly 20 years following the burn incident. We rely on a team of professional experts to determine the affect that third-degree burns, scarring, disfigurement, and loss of breath capacity due to smoke inhalation will have on the quality of your life, and that of your family.

If a severe burn has affected you or a member of your family, contact Hartley Hampton, P.C., to schedule a no-cost consultation.

  • Electrical burns from electrical current, either direct current from a battery source or alternating current through wiring
  • Radiation burns from prolonged exposure to x-rays, nuclear materials, or ultraviolet rays
  • Thermal burns from scalding liquid, heated metals, steam, or open flames, where external heat raises the temperature of the skin and causes charring or cell death
