Types and Degrees of Burn Injuries in New Cassel, New York
Accidental burns of any severity sometimes involve a variety of causes and contributing factors. Cleveland Clinic cites thermal, chemical, radiation, and electrical as types of burn injuries. It further cites the following causes of such injuries:
- Accidental and intentionally set fires
- Contact with hot liquids, steam, and surfaces
- Dangerous chemical and electrical exposure
Burns sometimes result from motor vehicle accidents and exposure to hazardous substances. Our New Cassel burn injury attorneys will review all documentation related to the cause of your injury. We also conduct our own investigation to get to the bottom of the accident and prove you are entitled to financial compensation.
What You Need to Know About The Financial Recovery Process
The financial recovery process after a negligence-based accident depends on proving the at-fault party’s negligence with a robust and compelling evidence collection:
- Accident or incident report
- Medical records and bills
- Job and salary records
- Accident scene photos
- Injury photos
- Witness statements
The evidence collection we assemble will prove the following required elements of negligence—duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. We document these elements to prove your case meets the legal parameters of personal injury compensation.

Our Burn Injury Attorney Ensures Your Potential Lawsuit is Filed on Time
The statute of limitations is an important part of your case. State law determines the amount of time you have to file your lawsuit. The personal injury statute of limitations (New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214) and wrongful death statute of limitations (Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1) vary.
The statute also varies according to the age of the injured party and the at-fault party’s actions. The best way to ensure the state’s filing deadline is to let our burn injury attorney handle it for you. We will ensure it is accurately interpreted and filed within the allotted time.
When you act before the statute of limitations expires, we also have time to canvass the accident scene, request accident reconstruction, and interview witnesses while their memories are fresh. The sooner you contact us, the more time we have to build the strongest possible case for appropriate compensation.
