Burn Injuries

$5 Million in Burn Injury Lawsuit

$5 Million in Burn Injury Lawsuit: Burn injuries can be a painful and potentially life threatening injury. Burns can occur from exposure to fire, hot surfaces and boiling water. When people are negligently exposed to situations that cause burns having the right attorney on your side can make all the difference. Gill and Chamas has been representing burn accident victims for many years and have handled numerous cases where burns have been the primary injury.

Raymond A. Gill Jr. represented two people who were badly burned by boiling water from a burst pipe in their Jersey City apartment. They will share a $5 million settlement from the companies that owned and managed the building.

About the Accident: When a smoke alarm went off at 2:00 in the morning, both plaintiffs jumped out of bed and into three to six inches of boiling water that had flowed from a broken pipe in the heating system, activating the alarm. Both plaintiffs suffered second and third degree burns and needed skin grafts.

About Second and Third Degree Burns: Second-degree burns, which are partial thickness burns) affect the epidermis and the lower layer of skin. They cause pain, redness, swelling, and blistering. Thirddegree burns, which are full thickness burns, go through the dermis or the lowest layer of skin and affect deeper tissues. They result in white or blackened, charred skin that may be numb.
