Different Types of Burns

According to the American Burn Association, there are 1.1 million burn injuries in the United States every year, which require treatment. Approximately 45,000 of these injuries require hospitalization and approximately 4,500 of these victims die. Many of these injuries are caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of another party.

Why an attorney is needed

Plain and simple: burn injuries can be devastating. Insurance companies who back up those responsible do not want to, and will not pay a burn survivor nearly anything that is reasonable, to even approach full and fair compensation for medical bills and suffering.

It requires an attorney, who can not only threaten a lawsuit, but who can and will go to court to obtain the money that is both needed and deserved.

A burn survivor simply cannot do this without an attorney.

Even Firefighters Need An Attorney

Firefighters, in all but 18 states, have an uphill battle if they want to pursue compensation claims. The "Fireman's Rule" bars these claims in most states.

Firefighters need an experienced attorney who knows how, if possible, to get around this horrible rule.

In the law, there are usually exceptions. Union attorneys are typically wonderful, but they probably are not experienced personal injury trial attorneys, and moreover, they probably have few if any case experience with representing a burn survivor, or the family of someone who died.

Other causes can be:

- Motor Vehicle Accidents - When a careless driver causes a car, truck, bus, public transportation, or motorcycle crash, burns can result from fires and sparks from gasoline, fluids or exposed wires. Friction burns may also occur.

- Boating and aviation accidents – Although they occur less frequently than motor vehicle accidents, accidents caused by careless or reckless boaters can produce the same types of burn injuries. Gasoline fires may be more catastrophic due to exposed fuel tanks in boats.

- Workplace accidents – Serious burns are among the leading types of workplace injuries. These burns can include chemical burns and scalding. They can occur at restaurants, factories, construction sites or warehouses. They may be caused by exposure to fires, explosions, wiring, hazardous chemicals, compressed gases and hot liquids.

- Radiation – A patient undergoing cancer treatment, for instance, may suffer radiation burns due to the negligence of a medical professional.

- Electrocution – An electrical shock from exposed, dangling wires can produce burns that harm skin, muscles and nerves. These accidents frequently occur in the construction industry. However, they also can occur in residential settings and may be due to the negligence of a landlord.

- Propane gas tanks – Improperly filled or defective propane tanks that are used for cooking or heating can lead to fires and explosions. Manufacturers and distributors of faulty tanks may be liable.

- Defective appliances – An electrical burn can result from faulty wiring in a household appliance. Burns may also result from defective grills, griddles, stoves, water heaters and space heaters. The manufacturer may be liable for failing to provide proper safety features or adequate warning labels.

Client Testimonials

Paul was recommended to me by another attorney I was working with who doesn't do personal injury. She gave me Mr. Samakow's info. Paul and his amazing staff (especially Vania) did a fantastic job on my case. My first impression of Paul was unusual (and shouldn't be), he actually answers his phone when you try calling him! In a world of "He/She will call you back" and "let me take a message", Paul and his staff are always available. He also didn't BS me on my case. He told me upfront what to expect. It took the amount of time he said it would and gave me realistic idea of what my case was worth. In the end, I was awarded more than expected. Paul is very calm and professional in court. He clearly knows how to win with facts rather than court room antics. Great job to his entire staff!

- Rob Berkman

It was a great pleasure to have Mr. Samakow on my case. My experience with Mr. Samakow and his team was nothing but positive. They were very kind and helpful. The team was always available to answer any questions that I had. Even Mr. Samakow was available when I needed assistance! That was a plus for me. Mr. Samakow was very sympathetic of my case. He did not treat my case like any random situation. My family and I are grateful for him and his team. If you need a hands on lawyer and team, I would recommend Paul Samakow!

- Clemencia Hernandez

I want to thank Mr.Samakow for his work. He resolved my case during 3 months. It was much faster than I expected. Very professional and responsive attorney. I had couple attorneys before him for my case and they were not able to resolve it. But then I found Mr.Samakow and in 3 months after signing a contract I got my check. Thank you again for your work! I do recommend him.

- Anastasiia Sotskaia

My experience with attorney Paul Samakow was excellent, he gave my case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful. I never once was treated as anything other than a valuable client by his legal assistant Lizza. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received.
