Are You Looking For A Burn Injury Lawyer?

Involvement in a fire or explosion is one of the most devastating things that can occur in a person’s life. Even a minor event can cause catastrophic injuries and lifelong damage. Unfortunately, these events occur frequently throughout New York. From construction sites, to private homes in close quarters, to workplace accidents, fires and explosions are a near-daily occurrence in the city, surrounding area, and throughout the state. And despite a significant decrease in fire deaths in 2016, 48 people still died in incidents. Finding the right burn injury lawyer is very important if you are involved in fire or explosion accident.

In New York State, victims of explosions and fires are entitled to compensation for their injuries and for damage to property when the event was caused by negligence. These laws apply to firefighters and other rescue personnel whose job it is to assist when an explosion or fire occurs.

Who Is Responsible In Fire And Explosion Incidents?

In most cases, New York fires and explosions are caused by human error or corporate negligence. Many are the result of multiple acts and omissions by a combination of both parties. And in most cases, the party’s actions that caused the incident already have a team of personal injury lawyers and significant resources to help them with their defense. You deserve the same.

If you have been injured in a fire or explosion, you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. Property damage in these cases is often severe and medical costs are astronomical. There are complex laws in place that cover fire and explosion events, and unfortunately, these laws are sometimes interpreted in favor of the defendant instead of the victim. This is why it is so important to work with an experienced burn injury lawyer.
