Manhattan Burn Injury Lawyer
Second- and third-degree burns can leave you in pain, unable to work, in medical debt, and permanently disfigured. Get compensated for what you’ve been through by working with a Manhattan burn injury lawyer.
In addition to being painful, burns can be incredibly difficult to recover from. If you were burned in an accident or by a defective product, the responsible party should compensate you for your medical bills and the pain and suffering that your burn injuries have caused.
The most effective way to seek the compensation you are owed is to hire a Manhattan burn injury lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP to file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
What Caused Your Severe Burns?
The first thing we will ask during your consultation is how you suffered your burn injuries. We need to know the details of your accident to determine who could be to blame. To file an injury claim, another party must be negligent, whether that is another person, a business, or even a government entity. It is common for people to suffer severe burns in a variety of different accident types, such as the following:
- A defective product, such as an e-cigarette, catching on fire or overheating
- Car, semi-truck, or motorcycle accident resulting in a fire
- Exposure to dangerous substances that lead to chemical burns
We Need to Prove What Happened
Your Manhattan burn injury lawyer will gather evidence to prove your version of events and that you were not at fault for the accident. We need to prove all of the following points:
- Severity of Your Burns – Some first-degree burns do not qualify because you can recover from them within a couple of days and without much impact on your life.
- How You Were Burned – Proving that you were using the product or were not at fault for getting burned is important.
- Someone Else at Fault – Another person or entity must be to blame for what happened due to their direct actions or failure to act.
Conducting discovery allows us to gather the evidence we need to prove these facts.
Compensation for Burn Injuries
The best way to determine how much compensation your burns are eligible for is to speak with a Manhattan burn injury lawyer from our office. We will evaluate what happened and the impact that your wounds have had on your quality of life. While all the facts must be assessed before a value can be placed on your claim, we can make some predictions based on the expenses you have had to pay and what you are likely to pay in the future.
You can seek compensation for both financial expenses and non-economic losses. Financial damages represent anything with a dollar value, such as medical bills, lost income, and transportation expenses. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, represent your lost quality of life, such as disfigurement, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
Starting Your Burn Injury Claim
The first step in filing a personal injury lawsuit is contacting a Manhattan burn injury lawyer. We can go over what happened, answer your questions, and make a recommendation on what your next steps should be. Once retained, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf, conduct discovery to gather evidence, and begin the negotiation process.
