Burn Injury

Burn injuries in Louisiana are serious and unique.

You may suffer a burn in Louisiana from a defective product, fire, or electrical or chemical accident, especially if you work in the petro industry or on an offshore oil rig. Unfortunately, many burn injuries are very serious and result in years of important medical treatment – both physical and mental.

While there are many personal injury attorneys, there are fewer that focus on burn injuries in Louisiana. But one thing is certain – if you’ve suffered a burn injury, you should speak with a burn injury litigation attorney to help you fight for your rights.

An experienced and trusted burn injury advocate.

For over 20 years Tommy Pittenger has fought for hard working individuals in Louisiana suffering from burn injuries. His experience includes working on claims involving the Louisiana Products Liability Act, which is important because many burn claims are the result of a defective product or device.

He is intimately familiar with burn injuries and is trusted by clients after winning significant verdicts and settlements across the entire state of Louisiana. When you work with Tommy, you’ll quickly find that he always maintains an open dialogue with you and your family.

Tommy is also an active supporter of burn victims in Louisiana outside of the courtroom. He is a financial backer of the Baton Rouge General Burn Unit and is a member of the American Burn Association.

I got burned working offshore. Three to four lawyers told me I didn’t have a lawsuit except for Comp. Tommy took my case and made the rig operator pay. I will always have the scars but don’t have to worry about my bills because of Tommy.

I worked as an electrician at one of the plants on the Mississippi River. I was burned when the switchgear I was working on became “hot.” They flew me to the Baton Rouge General Burn unit and I was there for three months. It was hell. The two comforts for me were my wife and children and knowing Tommy was handling my case.
