Some of the benefits of choosing our firm include:

We Don’t Charge Upfront Fees

At Shulman & Hill, our burn injury lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis. We do not charge a retainer or other upfront costs. We believe everyone should be able to afford legal representation. To this end, we only work for a portion of the compensation we recover in the case. We don’t receive payment until your case is settled or won.

We Take Workplace Burn Injury Cases

If you were hurt at work, our firm has both a workers’ compensation team and a personal injury department. We can handle both of your cases, meaning you do not need to deal with multiple firms and worry about how they will work together. Our teams support one another in our fight to get you both workers’ compensation benefits and compensation through a third-party injury case.

Building a Case for Burn Injury Compensation on Long Island

Our approach to your case will depend on the circumstances, case details, and other factors.

Before we take any action, we need to ensure we have evidence to support a compelling case. The evidence in a Long Island burn injury case could include:

  • Official reports filed by first responders, including police officers or firefighters
  • Any available photos or video of the incident
  • A scene survey
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Fire reconstruction or accident reconstruction
  • Expert testimony, especially from doctors and specialists
  • The victim’s relevant medical records
  • Documentation of the victim’s expenses, losses, and other damages

The evidence we gather supports the insurance claim or lawsuit we file. The goal is to recover fair compensation for our client, hold the at-fault party accountable, and get justice. This is possible in many cases where there is strong evidence to show what occurred, who caused the accident, and the damages suffered.

Damages Burn Injury Victims Can Recover

When our lawyers file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault party in a burn injury case, we seek to recover all the losses you suffered. While each case is different, we are often able to pursue damages that include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Past and future lost income

If your loved one passed away in an accident that caused fatal burn injuries, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This may result in the recovery of wrongful death damages, such as:

  • Your loved one’s conscious pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost Income and loss of other services.

Your attorney can explain more about how wrongful death cases work when you reach out to us.

Long Island Burn Injuries Often Occur Because of Someone Else’s Carelessness

Many burn injuries occur because one party acts carelessly or recklessly. This could be an at-fault driver or a property owner, for example. When our lawyers handle a case, we gather evidence to help us understand what happened and who is legally responsible.

Once we know the identity of the liable party, we can build a compelling case against them to show they are legally responsible for the injuries, expenses, and losses our client suffered.

Our burn injury lawyers on Long Island handle cases where burns occurred from:

  • Traffic accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Apartment or hotel fires
  • Other business fires
  • Home fires
  • Other premises liability cases
  • Construction site accidents
  • Other workplace accidents
  • Defective product cases

While pursuing a serious injury claim or lawsuit after a fiery car accident has its own complications, many of these cases require us to show how the property owner or occupier caused or contributed to injuries our client received. This could require us to investigate chemical exposures, electrocutions, defective appliances or power tools, or other unusual incidents.

Holding the At-Fault Party Responsible for Your Long Island Burn Injuries

When a burn injury occurs on someone else’s property, the property owner is often legally responsible. This is because property owners and occupiers outside of private homeowners have an obligation to provide fire safety and suppression equipment. For example, fire codes require most hotels to meet a long list of standards. This includes providing:

  • Clearly marked fire exits
  • Smoke alarms
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Fire extinguishers

These codes also require all property owners to regularly evaluate and maintain their buildings to prevent issues with electrical systems, appliances, and other fire hazards. Property owners can greatly reduce the risk of burn and electrocution injuries by following the applicable codes.

If they fail to do so, our attorneys know how to build a case to hold them responsible. We can do the same if serious burn injuries occur because of a traffic accident or fire. In these cases, the at-fault driver is usually liable for the burns and other injuries crash victims suffer.

Our Attorneys Understand How Burn Injuries Occur on Long Island

Serious burns happen in many different ways and cause a range of serious and catastrophic injuries. They are expensive to manage, treat, and rehabilitate. Our attorneys understand that victims need to recover fair compensation based on their medical bills and other expenses and losses.

We pursue payouts for our clients based on injuries that happened because of:

  • Fires
  • Contact burns from hot surfaces
  • Steam and hot liquid
  • Chemical exposure
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Structural collapse during a fire
  • Electrical burns from equipment defects or malfunctions
  • Electrocution injuries from lack of maintenance or improper electrical wiring

Many burn injuries require extended inpatient treatment, recurrent surgeries, reconstructive procedures, and plastic surgery. Therapy and rehabilitation could occur as an inpatient or on an outpatient basis.

Treatment for serious burns usually takes place in a certified burn center. There are several in New York State. On Long Island, victims could receive specialized treatment at:

We know this treatment can become expensive, so we can aim to recover compensation that covers your medical bills.
