Burn Injury Lawyer in NYC
Burn injuries can be horrific. Severe burns are extremely painful and permanently damage the skin’s tissues and underlying muscles. Burn victims can have skin discolorations, scarring, and disfigurements long after they’ve “healed” – not to mention the emotional distress often tied with traumatic burn incidents. Burn injury claims in the New York civil court system can often result in sizable awards for a lifetime of adverse effects. To discover how much your recent burn injury could be worth as a personal injury claim, contact Pazer, Epstein, Jaffe & Fein, P.C.
Product Liability and Burn Injuries
A good number of NYC burn injuries stem from defective products. Many consumer items have the potential to cause burns, but don’t, due to safety-first designs and manufacturing procedures. Examples include clothing irons, cooking equipment, and electrical products. Consumers know of the potential risks of burns and use these items accordingly. When an item is defective, however, it can be impossible for the consumer to predict how it will react. This can lead to serious burn injuries.
Product liability lawsuits in NYC do not require injured parties to prove the manufacturing company’s negligence. The law holds manufacturing companies to high standards of care, and gives injured consumers the opportunity to seek damages without having to prove that someone made an error or mistake that caused the incident. Instead, an injured party only has to show the item had a defect, and that the item caused the injury. As long as the consumer was using the item as the manufacturer intended at the time of the burn, he or she may recover compensation.
Negligence and Burns
Other burn injuries stem from someone else’s negligence. This might be the case if a distracted driver crashed into you, trapping you inside a flaming vehicle. Negligence might also form the basis of your lawsuit if your burn occurred in the workplace, due to arson or intentional harm, or because of a careless property owner. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you will need different elements of proof to be eligible for recovery. A competent team of attorneys can help you with these elements in NYC.
