Our New York Burn Injury Attorneys Understand How These Injuries Happen

Burn injuries occur in many ways, including due to someone else’s recklessness or carelessness. Some common causes of burn injuries in New York include:

  • Scalding from hot water in tubs and showers
  • Exposed steam pipes and defective radiators
  • Fires and explosions
  • Damaged electrical wiring
  • Boating accidents
  • Welding accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Defective products
  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Boiler accidents

You should not be required to bear the financial burden of another party’s negligence and wrongdoing. Your family should not suffer because of an injury that was not your fault. Our New York burn injury lawyers aggressively pursue appropriate settlements and awards to compensate you for your losses.

Our Burn Injury Attorney in NYC Handles All Types Of Burn Injury Cases

Our New York burn injury law firm handles all types of burn injury claims, including:

  • Chemical burns caused by exposure to chemicals or hazardous substances
  • Flash burns caused by an explosion or exposure to flames
  • Burns caused by failure to properly regulate water temperature in multiple dwellings
  • Thermal burns caused by hot objects, steam, fire, or hot liquids
  • Electric burns from coming into contact with electricity or electrical wiring

While immediate medical care can reduce the risk of complications, they are still very common. Serious burn injuries and complications can cause lifelong disabilities or impairments. Complications could include:

  • Scarring and disfigurement caused by burns
  • Organ damage
  • Infections
  • Amputations
  • Significant disfigurement and scarring
  • Nerve damage
  • Sepsis and septic shock
  • Chronic pain
  • Joint damage
  • Fluid loss
  • Psychological trauma, including anxiety, depression, and PTSD
  • Systemic shock

Burn treatment is often lengthy and painful. Victims often require numerous surgeries, including skin grafting, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgeries. In addition, you might require trauma counseling, pain management, and rehabilitative therapies. Our firm will take all your losses into consideration as we fight for your settlement.

Why Should I Hire a New York City Burn Injury Attorney?

After a burn injury, you could face months of painful recovery, including multiple surgeries. You might also need inpatient rehabilitative therapy as part of your medical treatment.

What Is the Statute of Limitations For NYC Burn Injury Lawsuits?
