Burn Injury Attorney in Manhattan

Skin burns can range from mild to severe. Some burn injuries can even result in permanent scarring. Fatalities can also occur from severe burns, especially if internal organs are affected. Burn injuries can happen anywhere, but most are caused by an accident. Chemical spills, electrical shocks, and prolonged exposure to the sun are only a few ways you can suffer a moderate or severe burn injury.

Some burn injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence. If your burns are caused by someone’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your legal options and for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

  • How to Tell if You Have a Severe Burn

    The following are the most common signs and symptoms of a first-degree burn. However, everyone may experience symptoms differently. Some common symptoms may include:

    • redness
    • dry skin
    • blisters
    • skin that is painful to touch
    • pain lasting longer than 48 to 72 hours
    • peeling skin

    These are only a few of the common symptoms associated with severe burn injuries. Remember, if your burn injury is the result of negligence, contact a personal injury attorney to learn if you’re eligible for compensation.

  • Common Causes of Burn Injuries

    Burn accidents often happen at work, and not all affect the skin. Severe burns can also cause internal injuries. Here’s a look at some of the common causes of burns in the workplace.

    Thermal Burns

    These are the most common type of burn injuries and are caused by direct bodily contact with a heat source. This could be a fire, of course, but it could also be a home appliance like a heater, stove, or grill.

    Electrical Burns

    Electrical burns are caused by electric currents and tend to cause tissue damage. Typical causes of electrical burns are touching an exposed wire, swimming in electrified water, or suffering an injury from a piece of machinery.

    Chemical Burns

    Several hazardous chemicals can result in severe burns if they come into contact with exposed skin. These are some of the most serious workplace injuries we see.

    Smoke Inhalation

    Smoke inhalation is more common than people realize. Victims can suffer burns and damage to the respiratory system after heavy smoke inhalation.

  • Occupations that Can Increase Your Risk for Burn Injuries

    Some occupations can increase your risk of developing a first-degree burn. These can include but aren’t limited to,

    • Firefighters.
    • Construction workers
    • Electricians
    • Welders
    • Food service employees
    • Factory staff
    • Truck Drivers
    • Coal Miners

    While worker’s compensation typically covers your damages if the burn injury occurs at work, you may be eligible for additional compensation. Contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more.
