If I Suffered a Burn Injury, Can I File a Lawsuit?

I’m Laurie Anton, a trial attorney at the law office of Marc L. Shapiro. In my many years of practice, I’ve heard about various types of burn injuries, and I recently dealt with a client who had a vaping battery explode in his pants pocket while leaving a convenience store. It was a serious injury, and he required medical care, including skin grafts, plastic surgery, and hospitalization. The main issue in his case was liability. Multiple parties were involved in the manufacturing and sale of the product that caused his injuries. If you’ve been injured in a burn accident, there are statutes of limitations that we need to be aware of, depending on the jurisdiction and the type of injury. Contributory or comparative negligence may be a factor, and we always review all of the evidence to make sure that we can persuade the other side of their liability. In a product liability case, we need to identify the manufacturer of the defective product and any components that may have caused the injury. We also need to determine whether workers’ compensation is applicable. If you believe you have a burn injury case, we can help.
