Few injuries are as destructive as burns. A severe burn can cause disfigurement, multiple organ failure and death. Survivors must endure a long recovery period that may involve many surgeries and painful procedures. They may also experience emotional trauma due to the severity of the pain and adjusting to life with scars and other injuries. Unfortunately, sometimes medical practitioners find it necessary to intentionally induce a coma to relieve a victim from the pain of a serious burn injury.

The most common causes of burn injuries are fire, car accidents, electrical shock, explosions, chemical exposure and defective products. Although anyone can suffer a vehicle accident or fire, certain workers are at increased risk for other types of burns. For example, construction and utility workers are at risk for electrical burns caused by contact with power lines, as well as burns from natural gas explosions.
A burn can result in multiple injuries, including:
- Tissue, nerve or muscle damage
- Respiratory and cardiac arrest
- Inhalation injury
- Internal bleeding
- Loss of sight, taste, hearing or smell
In the most catastrophic cases, a burn may cause wrongful death.
Our experienced attorneys work with doctors, medical experts and life-care planners to put together a long-term medical care plan. This plan may include physical therapy, skin grafts, cosmetic procedures and psychotherapy. Because this type of treatment requires care from specialists over months or years, the cost is considerable. You may also need to replace lost income and cover other related expenses.Contact a New York City Burn Victim Attorney
