Burn Injuries in New Jersey

Newark, NJ - Several Firefighters Injured Battling Residential Fire on Broadway

Serious burns can take years to fully heal. In some cases, burn victims never completely recover. They typically require hospitalization in specialist wards where they have to endure multiple surgeries and various other treatments in an effort to make their skin as functional and normal as possible. 

It is not uncommon for victims to need psychiatric care to deal with the trauma caused by the event. 

A critical burn is a physically and mentally draining injury. Nearly everyone has experienced a minor burn injury during the course of ironing, baking, or some other household activity. Burns caused by major structure fires, however, often cover huge portions of the body, are extremely painful, and leave their recipient vulnerable to skin loss and massive infections, leaving them prone to other serious medical conditions. 

Even after they have healed as much as possible, burns can leave disfiguring scars that require surgical intervention and can make even fundamental daily actions challenging and painful.

Appropriate treatment for burn injuries is costly. If your burn injuries were the result of another person’s reckless, careless, or malicious behavior, the law enables you to seek financial compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial damages.
