Liability Determination in a Burn Injury Case

When we take on a burn injury case, we can investigate the cause of the incident. Severe burn injuries can often stem from multiple parties’ carelessness. We can aggressively pursue information about your case to determine who is responsible. Our team is committed to holding the at-fault parties fully accountable for their actions.

To establish liability in a burn injury case in the Bronx, we may review videos, photos, police reports, and witness statements. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you could pursue more than one responsible party for compensation. Those responsible may include:

  • A reckless, careless, or inattentive vehicle driver
  • A property owner or management company that failed to maintain safe premises
  • An employer, contractor, or subcontractor who contributed to an unsafe work environment
  • A product manufacturer that produced a defective product

Critical Deadlines for Filing a Burn Injury Case in the Bronx

New York limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit against those responsible for your burn injury. While personal injury lawsuits typically have a three-year statute of limitations according to CPLR § 214, this time limit may vary depending on the details of your case.

Avoid costly delays by contacting a burn injury lawyer at Shulman & Hill as soon as possible following your injury. We can work to ensure that your legal filings meet the required deadlines, so you have a fair chance at recovering the money you need.

Burn Injuries Can Be Painful, Traumatic, and Costly

Burn Injury Victim Admitted at Hospital

Burn injury causes may include fire and explosions, chemical exposure, radiation, or electrical current. Damage can occur from the top layer of skin down to the bone. The deeper and more extensive a burn, the more likely it is to cause severe complications and even death.

If you suffer a severe burn injury, you may require hospitalization, surgical treatment, physical therapy, and long-term rehabilitation. You may also experience reduced mobility, contracture, chronic pain, and scarring. The consequences of a burn injury can affect you for the rest of your life.

If you or a loved one suffered burns due to another’s carelessness, legal options might be available to assist with your recovery. The burn injury attorneys at Shulman & Hill can help you pursue compensation from the responsible party through an insurance claim, workers’ compensation claim, or personal injury lawsuit.

The dedicated legal team at Shulman & Hill is well-versed in New York injury law. No matter how your burn injury occurred, we are here to help.

Workplace Burn Injuries

Steps To Take Following a Burn Injury in the Bronx

Working with a burn injury lawyer in the Bronx can help eliminate a lot of the stress associated with your case. We recommend you take the following steps to reduce your liability and protect your legal rights:

Avoid Posting About Your Case

When you suffer a severe burn injury, reaching out to your friends and family through social media may be tempting. However, posting about your case or even regular activities can compromise your claim. Since social media posts are often considered public, the liable party’s insurance company could use them as evidence against you.

Do Not Discuss Your Health With Insurance Representatives

Discuss your injuries with your doctor, not an insurance representative. Be wary of insurance carriers who ask how you feel or pry into your previous health issues. They may be looking for ways to reduce your settlement value.

Follow Your Medical Treatment Plan

With severe burn injuries, you could see numerous doctors for critical care, surgical procedures, and rehabilitation. Follow your doctor’s instructions and attend all appointments until your treatment plan is complete. Failure to adhere to your doctor’s plan could indicate to the insurance company that your injuries are not as bad as you claim.

Contact a Bronx Burn Injury Attorney As Soon As Possible

Although you could seek compensation alone, an injury attorney familiar with burn cases in the Bronx may benefit your case. A dedicated attorney can help you understand your legal rights, represent you in negotiations, and support you throughout the legal process.
