Burn Injuries

Burn Injury Lawyer

Wolfgram & Associates has the experience to help burn injury victims. Burn injuries are a complex and wide-ranging area of law practice. Fire, hot water, electricity, or chemicals can cause burns. Your burn injury lawyer must be knowledgeable about product liability, premises liability, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, and professional negligence.

Because of our experience, we know that burn injury cases are the most time-sensitive cases we work on. The scene has to be investigated quickly to secure vital information before it is:

  • Destroyed by firefighters
  • Dismantled, thrown away, or fixed by landowners or employers.

After you contact Wolfgram Law for a burn injury case, we will immediately hire a team of fire investigators or forensic engineers. We will rush and meet them at the scene. If it is in our client’s best interest, we employ other more specialized experts to help us with your case. Our foremost concern is gathering evidence quickly.

In the past, we have pulled down boarded-up windows and doors to gain access to a scene.  Likewise, our experience team of burn injury attorneys will stop trash collectors from hauling away water heaters. Furthermore, we will photograph, poke, prod, and scrape our way through a scene until the pieces of the puzzle are clear. The bottom line is that the experienced burn injury attorneys at Wolfgram Law will do what it takes to make things right for their client.

Apartment Fires: Special Considerations

The landlord has a duty both to help prevent fires and to ensure survival of the residents in case of fire. Your landlord is responsible for keeping furnaces, air conditioners, water heaters, and electrical systems in good working order. All hallways must be kept clear of trash, boxes, discarded furniture, and any other obstacle that could catch fire or block an escape route. All apartment owners are obliged to install working smoke detectors. Any mandatory fire suppression systems, such as fire extinguishers and sprinklers, must be up-to-date and in working order. All fire doors must be operational – shut, but not locked.
