Fire and Explosion Injuries Lawyer Bethlehem
ARE YOU A BURN VICTIM? CALL NOW!
Best Burn Victim Injury Attorney serving Bethlehem, Plymouth Meeting, Allentown, Easton & Lehigh Valley
You may be eligible for compensation if you sustained severe burn injuries in an accident. Burns are classified according to four levels of severity, from first-degree burns, which only affect the surface of the skin, to fourth-degree burns that affect not only the multiple layers of skin but underlying structures such as nerves, muscles and tendons, or bones. Our fire and explosion injuries attorney serving Bethlehem has the knowledge and experience to help you recover the compensation you need to help with things like hospital bills, medical care and lost wages dues to your injuries.
Burn injuries can require costly medical treatments. More severe burns, such as third- and fourth-degree burns, may require extensive reconstructive surgery, and even then, disfigurement may be permanent. Because burn-damaged skin is less effective at protecting the body, a serious bacterial infection known as sepsis may result, which may require lengthy hospitalization and potentially cause death.
We Help Burn Victims Get Back Their Lives
If you were burned in an accident caused by the negligence of another party, that party may be liable for medical expenses and other damages related to the injury. You need to contact a Bethlehem fire and explosion accident attorney to determine the compensation that you may be eligible to claim. Claims filed by burn victims typically fall into one of four categories:
- Product Liability: A manufacturer puts out an unsafe product that catches fire; e.g., you are burned when your cell phone battery ignites.
- Premises Liability: The owner of a property allows a dangerous condition on their property and you are injured as a result; e.g., your landlord installs unsafe wiring that causes a fire inside your apartment.
- Worker’s Compensation: If you are burned at work, you are covered under your employer’s worker’s compensation policy, regardless of whether your injury occurred as a result of your employer’s conduct or your own.
- Punitive Damages: These can be claimed when someone injures you as a result of gross negligence or with willful intent to harm you.
