If you suffered a burn injury due to someone else’s carelessness, you deserve a legal representative who has your best interests at heart. Shulman & Hill’s burn injury attorneys in Brooklyn are dedicated to aggressively seeking justice for clients who have suffered burn injuries.

Our personal injury team works to obtain maximum compensation because we know that a burn injury can affect your and your family’s life for years to come. Shulman & Hill is ready to provide you with an honest case review and advise how best to proceed with your claim.

Burns You Could Suffer in a Brooklyn Accident

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences defines burns as “tissue damage caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight, or nuclear radiation.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the three most common types of burns are electrical, chemical, and thermal.

Electrical burns occur with exposure to electrical current, while chemical burns happen due to corrosive or harsh substances. Thermal burns are the most common, resulting from exposure to heat, hot substances, or flames.

A Burn Injury Can Have Significant Long-Term Effects

Recent studies indicate that burn victims can suffer debilitating long-term effects after a burn injury. While minor first-degree burns often heal with minimal intervention, more severe second and third-degree burns may pose significant health risks.

When second- or third-degree burns cause extensive damage to the skin and underlying tissues, you could experience the following long-term health issues and complications:

  • Localized and widespread infection, including pneumonia and sepsis
  • Organ damage
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Contractures
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Mobility issues
  • Poor temperature regulation

While you recover, you may be unable to work, which makes it difficult to meet financial obligations. You and your family should not suffer the economic fallout of someone else’s actions. Shulman & Hill can help you seek the compensation you deserve.

You Have a Right to Sue For Damages After a Brooklyn Burn Injury

You could pursue a claim against the at-fault party if someone else’s carelessness caused your burns. Shulman & Hill’s dedicated burn injury attorneys in Brooklyn can help you determine which damages to pursue. Losses you could claim for a Brooklyn burn injury include:

  • Hospital bills and medical expenses related to your burns
  • Reduced or lost income due to your burn injuries
  • Pain and suffering caused by your burns

At Shulman & Hill, we aim to pursue maximum compensation for the full extent of your injuries. We aggressively advocate for our client’s rights against large corporations and stubborn insurance companies.

Shulman & Hill’s dedicated personal injury attorneys are committed to pursuing the compensation you deserve. We have won over $300 million in compensation for our clients in Brooklyn and New York.

While financial compensation cannot compensate for all the hardship you endured because of someone else’s actions, it can help reduce the financial burden. If we decide to take your case, we can actively work to secure the best possible outcome for your burn injury claim.

We Handle a Variety of Brooklyn Burn Injury Claims

When you suffer from severe burns, you deserve dedicated representation from attorneys who handle claims like yours. Burn injury cases we handle at Shulman & Hill include the following:

Work-Related Burn Injuries

Brooklyn is home to a variety of businesses that pose burn risks. Utility workers, heavy machine operators, welders, and construction workers are a few at risk. While business owners should meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fire safety standards, some do not. This can lead to serious workplace injuries, including burns.

Whether your injuries are due to electric shock, fires, and explosions, or chemical exposure, our team can help you navigate the workers’ compensation claim process or file a personal injury case against a third party who caused your burn injuries.

Vehicle Accident Burn Injuries

Thermal burns, chemical burns, and electrical burns are all possible when you are in an accident with a motor vehicle. Whether your accident involved a passenger car, commercial truck, or motorcycle, our Brooklyn burn injury attorneys have the knowledge and resources to help you pursue a claim against the responsible party.

Our team also handles claims for accidents with rideshare vehicles, planes, and trains. No matter what type of vehicle your accident entailed, we can help you seek the compensation you deserve for your burns and other injuries.

Property Liability Burn Injuries

Property owners and managers are responsible for keeping their property safe and equipped with appropriate fire safety equipment. You could sue for damages if you suffered injuries in a residential or commercial property fire because the premises were unsafe.

Shulman & Hill’s property liability injury attorneys in Brooklyn can help determine who is responsible for your injuries so that you can seek justice and fair compensation.

We Can Keep Your Brooklyn Burn Injury Case on Track

Generally, New York law allows you to file a personal injury lawsuit within three years of the date the injury occurred. The deadline may differ depending on your case details. In addition, workers’ compensation claims have different requirements and timelines. Reach out to an attorney immediately after your accident to avoid missing crucial deadlines.

When Shulman & Hill takes a case, our team immediately begins compiling evidence and investigating the source of your injuries. We always prepare cases for trial from the outset, so you can rest assured that we will meet all the necessary time requirements.

Tips for Protecting Your Legal Rights After a Brooklyn Burn Injury

It is natural to feel overwhelmed and worried after a severe burn accident. Insurance companies can be aggressive when you are in a vulnerable position. Follow these tips to protect your legal right to compensation for your burn injuries:

Hire an Attorney Immediately Following the Accident

You may be hospitalized or in rehabilitation for long periods while you receive burn injury treatments. As you recover, your time to file a claim diminishes. Rather than worrying about legal filings, negotiations, and deadlines, call an attorney right away. We can keep your case on track while you continue working on your health.

Avoid Providing Too Many Details to Insurance Representatives

Insurance carriers may try to keep your settlement low by shifting blame or undermining the severity of your burn injuries. You can protect yourself from these tactics by keeping any statements short and to the point. Avoid downplaying your injuries, and do not mention past medical conditions.

When in doubt, consult your attorney before answering questions from the insurance company. Once you have an attorney, they should handle correspondence, negotiations, and discussions with the insurance company.

Take Your Doctor’s Advice and Make Your Appointments

Doctor’s visits help improve your health and provide critical documentation to support your claim. Keep up with your appointments and treatments as instructed by your doctor. Missed appointments could indicate to the insurance carrier that your injuries are less severe.

Proving Liability in a Brooklyn Burn Injury Claim

Proving Liability in a Brooklyn Burn Injury Claim

Burn injuries occur in many settings, so proving fault can be complicated. No case is too complicated for the dedicated burn injury attorneys at Shulman & Hill. We can investigate the case details to determine exactly how your injury occurred.

We aim to hold the liable parties fully accountable for the damages they caused. Responsible parties may include:

  • Landlord or property manager
  • Vehicle operator
  • Product manufacturer
  • Employer, manager, or co-worker
  • Third-party contractor or subcontractor
  • Construction Company

Once we determine who is at fault, we gather evidence to prove it. Evidence may include photos and videos of the accident scene, witness statements, expert testimony, and reports. We will use this information to show that the at-fault party exhibited reckless or careless behavior that caused your burn injuries.
