New York City Burn Injury Lawyers

New York City Chemical Injury Burn Lawyers

The average hospital cost of a burn injury can range anywhere from $50,000 to $200,000, depending on the severity of the injuries involved. Additionally, serious burn injuries often require skin grafts, reconstructive surgery, and a period of physical therapy. The financial impact of a burn injury can be quite substantial, not to mention the pain and suffering involved.

At the law office of The Orlow Firm, our attorneys work closely with medical economists and life care planners in determining the financial impact of a burn injury.

Property Owner Liability and Product Defects in Fire-Related Accidents in New York City

Retailers, hotels, or apartment managers are liable for burn injuries and deaths that occur due to locked fire exits or building code violations involved in a fire. Sprinkler systems that don’t work, lack of smoke detectors, or an absence of clearly marked fire exits may create additional liability for property owners when it’s clear these dangers were ignored. Similarly, manufacturers can be held liable when there’s clear evidence that a smoke detector failed to work or a sprinkler system malfunctioned.

Working with fire investigators and other experts, our attorneys determine what caused a fire or explosion in order to hold those responsible accountable for our client’s burn injuries.

New York City Electrocution Burn Injury Lawyers

Have you or a loved one suffered from:

  • Burn injuries from a welding accident?
  • Electrocution from faulty wiring, defective power tools, contact between ladders and wiring and power lines or contact between live wires and saw blades or another power tool?
  • An explosion from a car, truck, forklift, crane, dump truck or other vehicle?
  • An exploding propane tank or other flammable material, fuel or gas?

If so, The Orlow Firm may be able to help you. We will thoroughly investigate your case to determine whether you can file claims against negligent third parties. These are people or entities other than your employer or co-workers whose negligence contributed to your accident. Third-party negligence claims can result in higher damage awards than workers’ compensation.
