Burn Injuries in New Jersey
A serious burn is an emotionally and physically traumatic experience. Almost everyone has experienced a minor burn from cooking or other common activity, but burn caused by residential fires often cover large portions of the body, are incredibly painful, and can lead to serious infections and skin loss, paving the way for other serious medical conditions.
When they heal, burns can leave disfiguring scars that require surgical intervention and can make routine movements difficult and painful.
A severe burn can take years to heal. In some cases, the victim never fully recovers. Burn victims usually require hospitalization in special wards where they have to undergo multiple surgeries and other treatments to get their skin as functional and normal-looking as possible. A lot of victims also need psychiatric care due to the trauma of the event and of living with disfiguring scars.
Appropriate medical care for burn victims is expensive. If your burn injuries were the result of another person’s reckless, careless, or malicious behavior, you are entitled to seek compensation for your physical, financial, and emotional damages.
