Burn injuries are responsible for close to 500,000 emergency room visits every year in the U.S. Most victims survive, but approximately 45,000 of these injuries will result in long-term care. These tragic incidents may be caused by fire, electrocution or explosions. When another person’s negligence is the cause of the accident, even more emotional trauma is often added to this already devastating experience. If you are coping with a burn injury, the New Jersey Burn Injury Lawyers of The Law Offices of John F. Marshall can carefully evaluate your claim, and explore all the options available to you to recover the compensation you and your family need to help with your recovery.
Burn Injury Law in NJ
There are many different categories of burn injury claims. If your injury occurs on the job, you will likely be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, and if the accident occurred at a construction site, you may be able to pursue a premises liability claim, as well. When your burns are the result of an automobile accident, it’s often possible to receive compensation from different car insurance companies along with your health insurance provider. A product liability claim may apply when the accident involves things like faulty equipment or a failure to properly warn you of the dangers of a product that results in injury. In extreme cases when the incident led to a death, survivors may be entitled to damage from a wrongful death claim.
