New York Personal Injury Lawyer Representing Injured People in New York
Burn injuries can be caused by a number of accidents and can have serious complications accompanied by intense pain and disfigurement. If you have been in an accident that is not your fault and it caused burns, it is wise to consult with a New York Personal Injury Lawyer.
Many people do not know that burn injuries require extensive care and that burn victims are may be entitled to a large settlement. Hiring a personal injury attorney who focuses on burn injuries before you settle with an insurance company will mean that you will get the money damages you are entitled to under the law.
Common burns include:
-Heat or thermal burns. Caused by something hot, these burns occur when the skin is exposed to fire, steam, hot objects, or hot liquid. You could sustain a heat burn by touching an excessively hot piece of equipment or by having a hot drink spilled on you at a restaurant.
-Electrical burns. These burns are sustained after contact with electrical sources or lightening.These burns can be all or mostly internal, meaning that they are impossible to see during an external physical evaluation.
-Chemical burns. Chemical burns happen after exposure to strong chemicals either found in the home or in an industrial setting.
-Friction burn. These burns are caused by skin contact with a hard surface. For example, a friction burn could be sustained by a motorcyclist who gets in an accident and skids on a roadway.
You’ve probably heard the term “first-degree burn.” Whether a burn is first, second, third, or fourth degree depends on how many layers of skin and tissue are affected. First-degree burns tend to be more superficial. They can be treated with over-the-counter topical creams and pain relievers. On the other hand, third and fourth degree burns always require medical treatment. These types of burns will require skin grafting or the use of synthetic skin. The pain associated with burns is severe, and it takes a long time to subside.
If you sustained a burn to the skin, you may have options available to you to compensate you for your injuries and lost time from work. Contact a New York Personal Injury Lawyer of The Rybak Firm, PLLC., for a free Consultation at 718-307-5554.
