Burn Injuries

Burn Injury Attorneys in New York City and Long Island

Lawyers seek compensation for accident victims with painful burns

Among the worst injuries you can sustain in an accident are burns to your body. They are painful, scarring and often disfiguring and they can cause psychological trauma that is difficult to overcome. If you suffer burns in an accident in the New York metropolitan area that was another person’s fault, the personal injury lawyers of Rich & Rich, P.C. are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve for your injuries and all of their consequences.

Experienced legal advocates bring burn injury claims in behalf of suffering victims

Burn injuries may be the result of many types of accidents, including:

  • Fires and explosions in homes, at work or in public places
  • Motor vehicle accidents involving fuel explosions or fires
  • Spills of or exposure to caustic chemicals
  • Electrical fires
  • Faulty heating and cooking equipment

Regardless of the type of accident, if the negligence or recklessness of another person was a contributing cause of your burn injury, we will identify all liable parties and bring claims against them in your behalf.

Dedicated advocates ardently represent nursing home burn victims

Nursing homes have a duty of care toward their residents, because they undertake to care for their needs and protect them from harm. When they breach this duty by careless conduct, intentional abuse or failure to act when necessary to prevent harm, nursing home residents can suffer burn injuries from such problems as:

  • Unattended heaters and heating pads
  • Scalding injuries from hot water or beverages
  • Failure to monitor residents at risk of burns due to mobility issues or cognitive impairments

If you or your loved one is a patient who suffers burns as a result of nursing home negligence or neglect, we are ready to assert appropriate claims to hold the responsible parties liable.

Compassionate attorneys seek to maximize damages on behalf of burn victims

Burns, whether they are the result of accidents, nursing home neglect or misconduct, or other causes, can be considered catastrophic injuries because they often have devastating effects on the lives of the victims and their families. As your attorneys, we will seek to recover all of the damages to which you are entitled in consequence of your burns, including for:

  • Your medical, hospital, rehabilitative and other health-care bills
  • Loss of your income and future earning capacity
  • Any scarring, disfigurement or loss of the use of body parts you suffer
  • Your pain, suffering and emotional distress
  • Loss of your enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium, comfort and services to your family

If you suffer burns as a result of the negligence of another, you need the help of a personal injury firm experienced in burn injury cases.
