Burn Injury Claims: What You Should Know

If you are suffering from a serious burn injury, you personally know how hard your life is, because the permanent scarring and disfigurement is both physical and emotional.

When your burn injury was caused by the negligent act of another, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and suffering. In this, we can help you.

Accidents That Can Cause Serious Burns

Our New York City burn injury attorneys represent clients who have sustained serious burn injuries in work-related accidents and other accidents as a result of someone else's negligence other than an employer's. These accidents frequently involve:

  • Scalding water or pipes
  • Explosions
  • Chemical exposure
  • Car fires
  • Electrical accidents
  • Apartment building fires
  • Other accidents

These are just some of the accidents that can cause serious burn injuries.

We Understand The Effects Of Your Burn Injury

Our personal injury lawyers pursue the compensation burn injury victims need to alleviate the financial strain of costs of proper medical treatment, lost income and other economic losses.

However, serious burn injuries cause so much more than the economic injury. In order to maximize recovery, we strive to demonstrate the mental effects of proceeding through life with a disfigured face, arm or other highly visible affected area caused by the burn injury — the constant physical pain and the mental anguish our clients experience as they deal with the daily challenges of their injuries.

We understand the toll that living with serious burn injuries can have on clients, particularly when the serious injuries affect their career.
