New Jersey Burns From Truck Accident Lawyer

Burns from a truck accident can be much more severe and potentially deadlier than what you might encounter during an accident with another passenger car. Large trucks and tractor-trailers often carry highly flammable liquids, such as fuel and propane, which can inflict serious injuries to both drivers and passengers. The highly flammable substances can ignite quickly during an accident. When that happens, the heat becomes so extreme that flesh burns extremely fast. Unfortunately, many of these accidents result in fatalities

When vehicles burn, they also release significant amounts of smoke and toxic chemicals that crash victims breathe in. Smoke and toxic chemicals are the primary causes of death in fiery accidents with large trucks. They also result in very serious burn injuries requiring costly medical treatment and hospitalization.

Chemical burns from a truck accident are another concern. Chemical burns often have long-lasting effects that impact nervous systems and bodily functions in widely varying ways. The uncertainty with chemical burns in particular makes them an especially difficult type of burn injury to determine fair compensation over a victim’s lifetime.

Burns from truck accidents are costly to treat. During the first year alone, it is very common for burn victims to amass more than $200,000 in medical costs. Burns often require hospitalization and numerous follow-up visits and treatments to prevent infection and assess healing progress. Many times, plastic surgery is necessary to help reconstruct the victim’s face and other body parts as best as medically possible.

The many long-lasting and costly effects of burns from truck accidents make legal representation very important for victims to obtain. An experienced truck accident burn attorney can help to ensure maximum compensation from insurers and responsible parties so that accident victims and their families can proceed with the healing process. Without experienced personal injury legal representation, insurance adjusters and others – who are not working in your best interests – will not offer you adequate compensation for all your injuries and losses.

If you have been seriously burned as a result of a truck accident, the experienced New Jersey truck accident burn lawyers at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
