Fire and Burn Injury Lawyers in New York City, White Plains and the Hudson Valley

At The Law Offices of Francis X. Young, representing clients in New York City, White Plains and the Hudson Valley, our successful burn injury lawyer has taught us many things over the years, the most compelling being the sheer number of these accidents.

The American Burn Association projects that in 2015:

  • 486,000 victims of burns will receive medical treatment
  • 40,000 hospital admissions will result from burns
  • 3,240 people will die from fire/smoke inhalation

Just this year, a  fiery explosion in Manhattan’s East Village injured at least  19 people and left two others dead.  Smoke or toxic gases from fires and burn injuries kill more people each year in the U.S. than all natural disasters combined annually.

Burn injuries can cause lifelong physical, emotional and psychological harm, and are among the most traumatic types of injuries. There may be profound and permanent impact to the skin; less obvious is potential damage to organs not located at the burn site. Burn survivors often suffer complications to their pulmonary, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and neurological systems. Contact The Law Offices of Francis X.

Burn Injury Lawyers Representing Clients For Decades
Offices in New York City and White Plains

Our most recent burn injury client was employed in the kitchen of Hudson Valley Hospital. The client received third degree burns when a cooking steam machine malfunctioned, causing scalding water to be released on the worker’s leg.  We uncovered proof that the International Corporation Aramark,  who maintained the machine, knew there were problems with the machine but never bothered to pay to fix the machine.  This decision lead to a settlement.

Common types of burn injury litigation include:

  • cars, trucks, and other vehicles with design defects (think Ford Pinto’s gas tank disaster)
  • defectively designed or manufactured products like portable stoves and butane burners
  • workplace injuries (welding, chemicals, explosions, etc.)
  • house and residential fires due to another’s negligence (a cigarette that comes in contact with furniture

The law in New York provides individuals with legal claims and the right to compensation for fire-related injuries they suffer as a result of a defective product or the negligence of another.

Burn survivors and other victims of fires may file lawsuits seeking compensation for their:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Rehabilitation
  • Physical therapy
  • Disability
