Severe Burn Injury Attorneys in Highland Park Seek Maximum Compensation For Victims of Accidents in Mercer County, Middlesex County, Somerset County, and Throughout NJ

One of the most painful and life-changing personal injuries is a serious burn. The physical and emotional turmoil a serious burn causes cannot be overstated. Serious burn injuries can often mean years of surgeries, skin grafts, and even psychological counseling for victims.

A survey published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that 486,000 burn injuries needed medical treatment in 2011. Of those burn injuries, 40,000 required hospitalization. According to the survey, 73 percent of burn injuries occurred in homes. Some common causes of burn injuries in homes are house fires due to cooking, smoking accidents, children playing with fire, hot water scalding accidents, and improper plumbing water temperature. In fact, scalding is the most common type of burn injury for children under four years old with 200,000 cases being reported.

Personal injury cases, such as burn injuries, are designed to provide fair and just compensation to victims of injuries when those injuries were sustained due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional action of another. A personal injury lawsuit seeks to reimburse victims for their medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering caused by disfigurement and emotional and/or psychological trauma caused by an accident.

How a Highland Park Burn Injury Lawyer Can Help

An experienced burn injury lawyer will go over the circumstances of your case to determine how much compensation you should receive. Several factors go into determining a fair settlement. Some of those factors are:

  • If You Have Been Disabled
  • If You Have Been Disfigured
  • Lost Wages
  • The Amount Of Emotional Distress You Have Suffered
  • The Amount Of Insurance Available
  • The Cost Of Your Medical Treatment
  • The Evidence Showing Liability
  • The Nature And Extent Of Your Injuries

After reviewing your case and determining a fair value for your claim, your lawyer will begin the process of getting you a settlement. The first step in settlement negotiations begins when your counsel contacts the insurance company for the party responsible for your burn injury and demands a settlement. An experienced burn injury lawyer will construct an evidenced-based case that will support your settlement demand. In some cases, insurance companies will pay the claim demanded. In most cases, the insurance companies will counter your demand with a lower amount. At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we will negotiate the best possible settlement for your injuries. If an agreement is not reached, we are prepared to proceed to trial via a lawsuit.

Two types of personal injury settlements are product liability settlements and general negligence settlements. A product liability settlement occurs when someone is injured or burned due to a faulty product. For example, a hospital patient was awarded $1,000,000 for burns suffered when a defective hospital bed caught on fire. A general negligence settlement is reached when one’s injury or burn was due to another’s negligence. An example of a general negligence settlement is when a woman received $640,000 from McDonald’s for third-degree burns she received from scalding hot coffee.
