Which Law Firm is Best for Handling Cases Involving Fire and Burn Injuries?

Burn injuries can be among the most painful, disfiguring, and catastrophic of injuries. These injuries require long courses of medical treatment combined with frequent hospitalizations which often result in staggeringly high medical bills and costs. On top of all of that, burn injuries can cause the victim and their families immense amounts of stress and confusion on where to look next.

The attorneys at Schiffman Firm have successfully litigated cases involving burns and fires caused by dangerous and defective products like lithium-ion batteries, laptop computers, tabletop torches, haircare products, and many others.

Our team has achieved multimillion-dollar settlements in which burn victims were led to believe that they did not have a valid case to pursue by other law firms or lawyers who did not want to take the case.

What types of accidents and situations can cause burn injuries?

Burn injuries can occur at any time, especially when a victim is around elements commonly associated with fire and explosions like heat, electricity, and gas. No matter the number of precautions a person takes, negligence and carelessness of another party can result in accidents that can lead to fires – which can ultimately cause burn injuries.

Some common accidents and scenarios that can lead to burn injuries may include, but are not limited to:

Power Tools, Cars, Laptops, Batteries

What types of dangerous and potentially defective products cause burn injuries?

Consumer and commercial products, especially ones that use electricity or battery power can always be susceptible to causing fire hazards that ultimately lead to burn injures.

Whether through a poor design or a faulty component, these defective products have the potential to cause catastrophic damage and life-changing injuries, and in the most extreme casesfatal accidents.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I suffer a burn injury?

Your health and safety – and the safety of those around you – are the most important thing. If you ever find yourself a victim of a personal injury, like a burn injury, seek proper medical attention first.

After you find yourself in a safer situation and your health is taken care of, contact a personal injury lawyer to help guide you through the next steps and provide proper legal advice. If you are contacted by any insurance companies, do not speak to them until you have retained a lawyer or attorney for your case – they will act as your mouthpiece between the insurance companies and ensure anything you say can’t be used against you in your case.

Some other items to consider:

  • Take pictures (or instruct someone else to) of the scene where the accident occurred
    • Be sure to include pictures if any objects or equipment that were involved in the accident
  • Ensure that your accident is reported to proper authorities and obtain copies of the filings
  • Once you receive medical attention be sure to follow all your doctor’s or health care provider’s orders
