Lawyer With Extensive Experience Helping Burn Injury Victims

Gas explosions, electrical fires and spilled chemicals can result in very serious burns that cause permanent scars and disfigurement — if the accident victim even lives through the injury. When the negligence of others or dangerous conditions at work cause these damages, the injured person can seek financial compensation and benefits for his or her suffering. Having a personal injury attorney can help maximize the compensation a person receives.

I am attorney Wesley Malowitz, and I bring 25 years of experience to severe burn injury cases. In that time, I have developed a skilled approach to identifying the negligent party or parties, holding them at fault, and recovering the compensation my clients deserve — either through negotiations or in court. My commitment to clients and ability to put together strong and persuasive cases has led to several successful settlements and verdicts.

First-, Second- And Third-Degree Burns

As an experienced personal injury and workers' compensation attorney, I can handle severe burn injury cases resulting from car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents, as well as chemical spills and other accidents at work. I represent clients suffering from a full range of severe burn injuries:

  • First-degree burn: A first-degree burn is relatively minor and will usually heal on its own within a week. An accident victim may suffer first-degree burns in addition to more severe burn injuries.
  • Second-degree burn: A second-degree burn is characterized by blisters, reddened skin and severe pain and swelling. Medical attention is necessary depending on the severity of the injury and its location. These burns may cause noticeable changes in pigment if they are not treated correctly.
  • Third-degree burn: A third-degree burn is the most serious and is characterized by charred black or dry, white skin. People with third-degree burns suffer permanent damage to their skin, fat, muscle and bone tissue. Skin grafts may be necessary to heal the injured area. Severe scarring and disfigurement is common.
