Burn Injury

A car crash can leave drivers and passengers with many sorts of different injuries. Depending on the impact, fires can ensue which can result in burn injuries to drivers and passengers of the vehicle. A severe burn can forever impact the life of the burned victim.

In some car crashes, a fire is started because of the leaking of flammable fluids from the engine block or the gasoline fuel tank or fuel line. These fires can be started on impact because of mechanical failures of vehicle or defects in the safe design of the vehicle. In addition to a claim against the negligent party in a crash like this, the burn injuries that are suffered by drivers and passengers because of the automotive defects in manufacture or design may allow to a claim against the car manufacturer for product liability, breach of warranty and negligence.

In car accidents or motorcycle accidents, burns to the body may be caused by fire, chemical exposure or even electrical shock. The three most common types of burns are chemical burns, electrical burns and thermal burns. Burns to the body can be very serious in fact, can be deadly. Burn injuries are treated with removal of the damaged tissue. This is done to permit the skin to heal itself. Sometimes the skin is so badly damaged that skin grafting is required.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.”

“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.

“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
