Employers, retailers, property owners, and even manufacturers can be held liable for burn injuries and deaths that result from negligence on their part. In many cases, violations of safety codes or fire regulations are involved, creating strict liability for those that ignore safety codes and building regulations. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom, we work with experienced fire investigators, design engineers, and safety experts in exposing negligence on the part of refineries, chemical plants, hotels, construction companies, and manufacturers that result in fires and burn injuries to our client. We consult medical economists and life care planners in order to determine the full financial effect of a burn injury, taking into consideration the cost of skin grafts, future surgery, physical therapy, in-home care, pain medication, and lost wages.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a fire, contact burn injury lawyer Jeffrey M. Bloom today to schedule a consultation to learn how our office can help you.
The personal injury Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom represents people suffering from burn injuries due to the following:
Second and third degree burns almost always require skin grafts and reconstructive surgery. Additionally, burn injuries are extremely painful and present an increased risk for infection. As a result, burn victims experience a great deal of pain and suffering that can affect them for the rest of their lives – both psychologically and physically. Here, a diminished quality of life must be taken into account when disfigurement and physical disability accompanies a burn injury. That’s why we document how a burn injury affected our client, using day-in-the-life videos and “before” and “after” pictures to explain to jurors what our client has to endure as a result of someone’s negligence.
Even if your burns qualify you for workers’ compensation, if a third party was involved you may be eligible to recover additional damages for your injuries. Before talking to an insurance agent or your company’s Human Resources representative, contact burn injury attorney Jeffrey M. Bloom today to schedule an appointment and discuss your case.
