How Can We Bring a Claim for Burn Injury Caused By Someone Else

Hi my name is Frank papa
and I'm an attorney with the Law Offices
of Robert M Geller but just a moment
when I speak to you about how to bring
the claim if you are burned by someone
else before I do that if you have an
injury matter that you'd like to discuss
with an attorney please feel free to
give us a call you're happy to sit down
with you in a free consultation to
discuss your matter now if you're burned
by someone else you can bring a claim
for damages and the standard would be if
that person who caused your burn acted
reasonably under like circumstances it's
a general negligence claim and what that
means is that we have to prove certain
things to recover damages for your
injury we have to prove a duty by the
person who burned you or caused that
burn that's usually a duty of reasonable
care meaning that they should have
reasonably took consideration for the
fioor care before they caused that
dangerous situation that caused the burn
they have to breach that duty which
means that they failed to protect you
from that harmful situation that harmful
situation and their breach of that
caused or damages which is causation and
that you were damaged that you suffered
a burn that resulted in medical
treatment and medical damages you hadn't
handled a number of burn cases after Law
Offices of Robert on Geller

if you come to mine there was a very
nice lady a little Italian grandmother
I'm Italian so and it feel family about
her she was about five feet tall very
sweet and she was undergoing a shorter
surgery at a local hospital she was in
the hospital bed and had her arm
restrained fully restrained so that she
couldn't even feed herself the hospital
failed to give her any assistance with
feeding when she asked the 19 year old
nursing tech to heat up her coffee she
brought it back
scalding at an untenable temperature and
left it on the edge of her bed table
unfortunately that Styrofoam cup melted
collapsed on my client and burned her
through her clothing she had second and
third degree burns because the nurses
couldn't remove the gown because of her
restrained arm
we brought a claim against the hospital
and they settled without going to trial
I've had another case with a little
young toddler in a daycare facility
where there wasn't proper supervision
and the toddler wandered into the
chemical closet of the daycare and
somehow got into commercial bleach and
the commercial bleach burned his little
thigh and the mother didn't realize
until she got him home because he was
screaming and screaming didn't know what
happened until she saw the bleached
clothing we brought that claim and they
also settled we also had a nice young
girl who was at our first semester of
college and she was attending a parade
on campus and a college frat boy decided
to be a good idea to make homemade
fireworks they don't work out too much
the firework exploded and hot fluid
scalded her clients face and chest to
where she had to have procedures to
remediate the scarring we brought that
case and that case almost went to trial
but they also settled as well so we've
handled some very interesting burn cases
in our career here at lobsters Robert
Geller I certainly hope you're never
burned but if you or someone in your
family has been burned please feel free
to give us a cloud any time to come in
and discuss that potential claim they
have to sit down with you in a free
consultation and see if we can do
something for you in regards to bringing
that quantity thank you so much for this.
