Although when we think of burns, we typically think of fire, scalding liquids, electricity, hot gas inhalation, or chemicals can all cause dangerous burns. When you consult a New Jersey personal injury attorney firm about your case, theyâ€™ll use a professional staff, including fire investigators, forensic electricians, and loss experts to determine if anyone was at fault. Theyâ€™ll consider inadequate fire prevention measures, mechanical flaws, poor wiring or code violations, product defects, and possible negligence on the part of a driver, property owner, company management, or other parties.
Insurance companies are often quick to settle burn injury cases; after all, itâ€™s in their best interest to pay as little as possible. But is it in yours? Serious burn injuries are not only disfiguring or disabling; they can require lengthy hospital stays, a series of reconstructive surgeries, expensive medications and rehabilitation therapies. Add to that the fact that burn victims can lose months of wages, and you can see that pursuing a personal injury case may be the best option you have when it comes to avoiding financial ruin–and in ensuring that this doesnâ€™t happen to someone else.
New Jersey law only allows you a limited amount of time to file suit in a personal injury case, and evidence in a burn accident is, of necessity, quickly cleared away. If you have questions about your burn injury, you owe it to yourself and your family to consult a New Jersey personal injury lawyer through Jersey Personal Injury today.
