Hello my friend.
Attorney Paul Samakow at your service.
Burn injuries are no joke. They’re one of the most painful injuries you can have. A third-degree burn can damage all your skin layers and destroy your nerve endings. This can cause excruciating pain that can last weeks or months and cause permanent scaring and deformity.
Taking care of a bad burn is challenging and can require time in a burn unit that’s specifically equipped to treat severe burns. Some burns are so bad, they will require skin grafts, extensive surgeries and even amputations. Once your doctors get you out of crisis, the wounds from a bad burn still require extensive wound care and pain management that can go on for months.
Bad burns can sometimes be caused by someone else’s negligence. If you were badly burned because of a defective product, like a dryer or washing machine that caught fire, or if you suffered a bad chemical burn because of faulty packaging of a chemical product, the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of the product could be held liable.
If you suffered a bad burn at work because of a fire, chemical spill, or some other hazardous work conditions, or because of the negligence of someone you were working with, you could file a worker’s compensation claim and possibly a personal injury claim against your employer or the person who caused your injuries.
Let’s say you’re badly burned on someone else’s property. Maybe you’re at a party and the chef loses control of the grill causing a fire where you are burned; or if you’re staying in an apartment and a fire breaks out in the unit below causing you to suffer a burn injury. In cases like these you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the property owner or manager.
If you’ve been badly burned on someone else’s property or due to someone’s negligence, it’s important to contact the best and most experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You may be able to receive financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and more with a personal injury claim.
It’s crucial to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the complex legal process and who will work to get you proper medical care for your injuries. You want an attorney who will fight for you and do all in their power to see you fairly compensated for your injuries and losses.
