New York Burn Injury Lawyer

Safety precautions should be taken to minimize the risk of burn injuries on construction sites. Every day, New York construction workers are at risk for burn injuries from gas lines, open flames, chemicals, and electricity found on work sites. Burn injuries are extremely painful and can have severe, long-term consequences. They often lead to permanent scarring or disfigurement and may require extensive medical care that puts a strain on families.

New York workers' compensation may not be enough to cover the medical bills, lost wages, and other complications that on-the-job burn injuries can lead to. Filing a New York construction accident lawsuit involves proving the negligence of a third party as part of the injury's cause.  If proper safety training and protocols are not implemented, the individuals responsible for the overall safety of the construction site may be considered negligent.

Did You Suffer a Serious Burn Injury While Working Construction?

With the wide range of heat-generating materials found at a construction site, it is important for workers to take steps necessary to prevent explosions and burn accidents from occurring. Burn injuries generally fall into one of three categories: first degree, second degree, or third degree. First degree burns are relatively minor, affecting only the outer layer of skin. Second degree burns are more intense, and third degree burns involve extensive damage to the skin and nerve endings.
