Seriously burned? Hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions

| Mar 18, 2020 | Firm News

Burn injuries are some of the worst types of injuries to experience. They are painful and often take much time to recover from. Burns can happen in all kinds of accidents including:

  • Car crashes
  • Construction site accidents
  • Fires
  • Chemical exposure incidents
  • Explosions

While minor and moderate burns may not need much care, severe burns can be life-altering injuries. No matter how these burns were caused, when they’re a result of negligence or malicious intent, you deserve the opportunity to hold the responsible parties liable for their actions. Your life will change, and it’s at least partially because of their actions.

What are some of the expenses that you might expect after a serious burn injury?

Some of the expenses include:

  • Corrective surgeries
  • Skin grafts
  • Hospital stays
  • Antibiotics and medications
  • Extensive rehabilitation
  • Scar repair, removal or treatment

If you’re burned in New Jersey, then it’s likely that you’ll go to the St. Barnabas Burn Center for treatment. This facility is designed to handle cases like yours. If you plan to file a claim against anyone who caused your burn injuries, then it’s a good idea to work with an attorney who has experience working with this hospital and its team. For a claim to be successful, you should work to provide a strong presentation for the jury, which is something that your attorney will help with.

Our website has more information on burn injuries and what to do if you’re a victim of burns. Your life may change as a result of the injuries that you’ve suffered, and it’s only fair that those who are responsible are held liable for the financial damages that you’ve suffered.
