Firefighter Burn Accident Attorney in NYC

When you or a loved one has suffered serious burn injuries while serving as a firefighter, you can come to The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny for help in pursuing compensation to offset the significant financial impact of the injury. Depending on the severity of the burns, the victim of this type of accident may face an extended period out of work or might even be forced into an early retirement. To make matters worse, the accident may have left the victim’s family with enormous medical bills for emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitative care. This may be a highly challenging situation, but it is not one you or your family have to face alone. The attorneys of our firm are ready to begin working on your firefighter injury claim to help you recover monetary damages.

Our goal when we represent a client who has suffered burn injuries is to obtain full compensation for every aspect of the injury’s impact on the client’s life, which includes all medical expenses now and in the future, lost wages, reduced future earning power, and damages for pain and suffering. Second- and third-degree burn injuries are recognized as being among the most painful type of injury, both physically and mentally, and they will often leave the victim with scars that will never fully heal. You deserve to have a dedicated advocate on your side fighting for your right to fair compensation for all you have suffered. Contact us now for a free consultation to learn how much you may be entitled to receive in a settlement or award of damages.

Grounds for a Claim

Your burn injuries do not make you eligible for benefits through workers’ compensation due to the fact that firefighters are not covered by that program. Instead, you will have to take legal action against the party who is responsible for causing the injury on the grounds that he or she was negligent. Under General Municipal Law §205-a, you can sue your employer or co-worker for injuries caused by violations of laws, rules, and ordinances enacted at the local, state, or federal level. General Obligations Law §11-106 also provides you with a right of recovery based on the negligence of anyone other than your employer or fellow crew member. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may have grounds to sue under both statutes.
