We Can Find Out How Your Burn Injuries Occurred

Nurse Is Taking Care Of Patient With Burns

The circumstances of your case will determine which party is legally responsible for the injuries you suffered and the damages you can recover. There are many ways burn injuries occur. Our attorneys know how to determine what happened and identify the liable party or parties in these cases.

We can help burn injury victims who were hurt because of:


When a fire occurs, the property owner might be responsible for the injuries and losses you suffered. This is because property owners are legally responsible for preventing fires and providing certain fire safety equipment, depending on the building type. In general, stores, restaurants, apartment buildings, hotels, and other businesses must follow fire codes that require:

  • Smoke alarms
  • Clearly marked fire exits
  • Unlocked exit doors
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Sprinkler systems, under some circumstances

All property owners and occupiers are legally responsible for evaluating and maintaining their structures to ensure safety and reduce the chances of a fire, electrocution, or another burn hazard. If they do not and a fire occurs, our team can build a case against them and seek fair compensation for you.

Other Premises Liability Cases

Sometimes, burns occur due to hot surfaces, steam, boiling liquids, or spills. A property owner might be responsible for this kind of accident. New York law allows us to hold the property owner or occupier responsible under some circumstances when an unreasonable hazard causes injuries. We know how these cases work, how to identify the liable party, and how to navigate the process to recover compensation for our clients.

Traffic Accidents

When you suffer serious burn injuries in a Long Island City crash, the driver who caused the collision is likely liable for the injuries that occurred. Legal options include recovering basic compensation through your personal injury protection (PIP) no-fault policy, filing an auto liability claim against the at-fault driver, or suing them in civil court.

Our Burn Injury Lawyers Understand How Burn Injuries Affect Victims in Long Island City

Burn injuries are often serious, with a high risk of infection. Serious burns also leave lasting scarring and limit the abilities of many victims. Our burn injury lawyers understand how deeply these injuries affect many aspects of our clients’ lives.

While some burn injuries are minor or moderate, many are serious and come with an increased risk of complications such as infections. Some types of burn injuries our clients suffer include:

  • Full- or partial-depth burns from fires
  • Surface burns from touching hot surfaces
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Injuries from structural collapse caused by a fire
  • Electrical injuries from malfunctions on tools, appliances, or other products
  • Electrocution caused by lack of maintenance or improper electrical wiring
  • Scalding from spilled hot liquids

Significant burn injuries require extensive medical treatment and support. This includes hospitalization in intensive care or a specialized burn center. This inpatient treatment often includes weeks or months of rehabilitation, ongoing care, and support to reduce scarring and restore function. You may decide to seek treatment at a burn center close to Long Island City, such as:

The costs of medical treatment you needed may be recoverable. When you work with our team, we can explain your options for seeking compensation for your medical expenses.

Evidence We Can Use As We Build Your Burn Injury Case

Our burn injury attorneys understand how to develop a compelling case to support an insurance claim or lawsuit based on our client’s injuries. We investigate what happened, determine the liable party, and take action to seek fair compensation. Throughout this process, we protect the client’s rights and represent their best interests.

If you suffered Long Island City burn injuries, you do not have to try to recover compensation and handle your case on your own. Let us represent you and navigate this process while you focus on your physical recovery.

When we begin a case, we must gather the necessary data to understand what happened. This requires us to investigate the incident and collect evidence that could include:

  • Official reports filed by police officers, firefighters, or other first responders
  • Photos or video of the scene or incident
  • A scene survey following the incident
  • Fire or accident reconstruction
  • Interviews with eyewitnesses
  • Expert testimony
  • The client’s relevant medical records
  • Documentation of their recoverable damages

With this evidence, we can often show the liable party’s insurer that their policyholder’s carelessness or recklessness caused our client’s injuries. This is essential in negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance carrier. Sometimes, we need to sue the at-fault party.

Often, we file insurance claims and lawsuits concurrently and work toward a solution in both directions at once. We settle many cases through negotiated settlements, even after suing the at-fault party. However, we are ready to take a case to trial if we do not settle before the trial date arrives.
