Burn Injuries


Representing Burn Injury Victims

Burn injuries can be caused by a variety of different scenarios or malfunctioning objects. Whatever the cause, a burn injury can be catastrophic for you and your family. If your burn injury occurred because of a workplace accident, another's negligence or a defective product, you may be qualified to file a lawsuit and try to recover just compensation for your injury.

Causes of a Burn Injury

Each year millions of people will suffer some type of a significant burn injury and hundreds more die due to their injuries. Burn injuries have very serious and long-term consequences. They can leave a person's appearance disfigured, affect their psychological well-being, and cost the injured tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Because of this, determining the cause of the burn injury is important. Our skilled Ridgefield burn injury lawyers can help determine if negligence is to blame.

Burn injuries can occur from the following:

  • Gas explosions
  • House fires and apartment fires resulting from someone's negligence
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Defective appliances or smoke detectors
  • Electric accidents
  • Cooking accidents
  • Exploding furnaces, stores, boilers, or other appliances
  • Chemical spills
  • Workplace accidents

If our team of attorneys can prove that the injuries you sustained were because your workplace was unsafe or there was negligence involved in the explosion or fire you were burned in, we may be able to file a lawsuit on your behalf.
