Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin have recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of an injured industrial worker who incurred severe burn injuries covering the majority of his body while on the job. The second degree burns occurred while the client was working for a broiler company, and the suit alleges a premises defect claim holding the employer responsible for the incident which occurred in East Houston. With the help of attorneys from the firm, they are seeking to prove that the property owner did not accurately cap a water/stream line which then resulted in the overflowing of the broiler system. As a result of this overflow, the victim's entire body was exposing to the high temperature water levels and steam from the broiler which caused the severe wounds covering his face, neck, arms, thighs and torso. At this time the plaintiff is still in the hospital receiving treatments for the burn wounds. The case is pending in Harris County, Texas.
Sadly, burn wounds can be not only painful but also life changing. In the most devastating of circumstances, a victim who incurred severe burn would it may result in extreme scarring and disfigurements as a result. Depending on the level of burn wound determines the extent of the skin and subsequent nerve damages, in which the victim may require skin graft surgeries in order to replace some of the damage and disfigured skin areas. Second degree burns, though not as serious as a third degree, can also be considered as more painful for the victim because less nerves are damaged in the burns, which means they will feel much more from the injury.
