How to Establish Liability in a Burn Injury Case

For you to win your burn injury case, you must be able to establish how the accident occurred and who is at fault. Our legal team looks at the evidence of the case to identify the liable party. We may obtain evidence such as:

Eyewitness Accounts

Eyewitness testimony can be powerful in proving a burn injury case. We can speak with witnesses and gather statements that back up your claim. Eyewitnesses may provide verbal or written statements that verify who was at fault for the accident.

Photos or Videos of the Accident

Whether your accident occurred at work or on someone’s property, there may be video surveillance of the accident. Viewing video footage can give us a clearer picture of who caused your burn injury.

Expert Witnesses

In cases that involve burn injuries, we may need to speak with expert witnesses about how the accident occurred. Industry experts can help us draw the connection between the accident and your injuries.

Medical Records

Medical records can confirm that your injuries are burn-related. They also help us assess how much your case is worth. Make sure you keep detailed records and medical documents that we can use in your case

The party responsible for your accident should be liable for paying your medical bills and other damages.

Client Success Story

I have been a practicing personal injury lawyer in New Jersey for over twenty years. I knew Michael Maggiano by reputation and when I was involved in an automobile myself I went to him to handle my case. I learned that the reputation was well founded and he has an outstanding law firm, very efficient and professional. He and his staff were always available and helpful during every step of the process and the resultant settlement was excellent. I could not recommend Mr. Maggiano and his firm more highly. Thank you to all at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi .

Client Success Story

I am delighted to provide this testimonial for Mr. DiGirolamo. His representation of me during my case was unflagging over its four-year duration. He kept me informed, and prepared for every eventuality as the case progressed.

He understood my fears and pain, and saw to it that Workmans Comp provided support for me until my civil case was settled. He prepared me substantially whenever necessary. I was very grateful for his understanding of the disastrous effect my accident had on every aspect of my life.

He was always supportive and kind personally, and totally professional. He reminded me to be realistic about the eventual outcome, and advised me as to the importance of my demeanor and attitude.

Everyone I came in contact with at the office was polite and helpful, in particular Marisol Suarez, Mr. DiGirolamo’s paralegal assistant. I will always be grateful for the way my case was handled.

Client Success Story

We hired Chris DiGirolamo as our attorney after Mike suffered a life changing injury at work. From the time we met Chris we felt we can trust him to work in the best interest for Mike’s needs. Chris is very down to earth and we felt comfortable whenever we met with him. He spoke to us so we always understood what was going on. He never threw around legal jargon that we would not be able to understand. He was always willing to ensure we knew exactly how our case was proceeding. Chris showed humanity in dealing with Mike’s Injuries and understanding of Mike’s unwillingness to accept some of the changes in his life.

Chris’s high level of energy and desire to bring a case to the best possible results were evident from day one. Our case was settled but of court with the help of a mediator and Chris was by our side explaining what was going on every step of the way. His preparation throughout the case was evident as he spoke before the mediator. It was a pleasure to watch. Chris at work and know he was working for us. He is tough and stubborn when necessary. We were also impressed by the respect shown to Chris by the retired judge we worked with as well as other lawyers. Chris was only happy with this case when he knew we had a settlement that we were very impressed with.

Compensation for Your Burn Injuries

Burns are often one of the most expensive and traumatic injuries to treat. You may have to undergo extensive medical procedures to preserve your skin or tissue from the burn. As a result, you may incur extensive medical debt as well as other losses. We may be able to help you claim the following damages in your case:

  • Medical bills
  • Physical therapy or rehabilitation
  • Disability
  • Lost wages
  • Living adjustments
  • Loss of consortium

If you have a loved one who passed away as a result of a burn injury, your family may qualify for compensation for funeral expenses, burial costs, lost household income, pre-death medical bills, or pain and suffering of the deceased. We can calculate your losses and fight for the maximum compensation based on the sum of your losses.

The Initial Settlement Offer from the Insurance Company

If you are unable to work and your debt is piling up, you may be tempted to take the insurance company’s first settlement offer. However, you are not required to contact the insurance company or accept the initial offer. Instead of settling for a low amount, contact our law firm and let us assess what your case is worth.

We can contact the insurance company on your behalf and negotiate a fair settlement that reflects your actual losses. If the insurance company offers a low settlement or rejects your claim, you have the option of taking your case to court. We can represent you and present a compelling argument before the judge.

That may seem like a long time, but gathering the evidence you need while you recover from your injuries is time consuming.
