If you or a loved one has recently suffered a burn injury, then you know how painful such injuries can be. The healing process can also take a considerable amount of time depending upon the extent of your injuries, and the pain and suffering caused by burn injuries tend to take a long time to dissipate as well while they are healing. Many burn injuries are caused by accidents in the home, but NYC burn injury attorneys also see many cases where the injuries are a result of someone else’s negligence.
For example, you can be burned by scalding hot liquid in a restaurant, or burned accidentally by a cigarette someone was holding too close to you. Other examples include more serious accidents, such as fires, explosions, or hot equipment not properly marked and at a safe distance from individuals. If you feel that your burn injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence, or even just the result of an accident that occurred on someone else’s property or in an establishment, then it is recommended that you contact a NYC burn injury attorney.
In addition to possibly being entitled to compensation for your medical bills and treatment, you may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering. Health insurance won’t always cover all the excessive costs associated with the treatment of burn injuries, and you certainly won’t pay you a settlement for pain and suffering. But an experienced NYC burn injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve. Contact one today to discuss the details of your incident.
