Understanding New Jersey Laws Related to Burn Injuries

Every state has its own set of laws and procedures. The New Jersey burn injury lawyers at Meirowitz & Wasserberg deeply understand New Jersey’s local court systems, judges, and opposing attorneys. 

Several New Jersey laws protect burn victims, but navigating the legal landscape without an experienced New Jersey burn injury lawyer can be challenging.

Burn injury law broadly generalizes various areas of practice that may apply to burn injury victims. The manner of your accident is important and will govern the exact laws that apply to your case and its categorization.

The most common burn injury causes include: 

  • House and apartment fires 
  • Automobile accidents 
  • Commercial truck accidents 
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Chemical exposure
  • Workplace accidents
  • Fires at stores, hotels, restaurants, and offices 
  • Electrical fires
  • Burns from medical treatment

The following areas of law may apply to a burn injury, depending on the cause: 

  • Personal injury 
  • Motor Vehicle 
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Premises liability

New Jersey laws determine important factors in your case, including:

  • Who can be held responsible for your injuries?
  • How are damages valued?
  • What damages are recoverable? 
  • How long do you have to submit your claim?

In most cases, you must prove another party’s negligence injured you. You must establish four distinct elements to prove your case:

  • Duty of care: The defendant owed you a duty of care.
  • Breach of duty: The defendant failed to act reasonably and, in turn, breached the duty of care owed to you.
  • Causation: The defendant’s actions or failure to act directly caused your burn injury.
  • Damages: You suffered losses because of your accident and injury.

Meirowitz & Wasserberg’s legal team excels at applying New Jersey law to their clients’ benefits. Whether there is a question of liability, compensation, or insurance company negotiations, Meirowitz & Wasserberg, LLP, ensures your interests are at the center of each decision.
