A firefighter was injured while trying to put out a New York house fire early on Thursday, March 18.
The fire started at about 1:30 a.m. in the Bay Shore area of Islip on Long Island. The blaze was so massive that crews from four departments responded to the call.
One firefighter sustained unspecified injuries while he was battling the fire and was taken to the hospital for treatment. There are no details about how the firefighter was injured or the degree of the injuries.
The cause of the New York house fire is still investigated.
Burn injuries can be devastating and may take a long time to heal. And even after the healing, the person could still have health issues. They may be unable to earn and enjoy simple life activities.
Even though most people connect burn injuries with fires, they could easily occur after an explosion of chemicals, using electricity tools, vapors and hot water.
If your injuries occurred because of someone else’s negligence, or as a result of your work, make sure to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
The attorney will help you while you are recovering from your injuries. They will review your case, gather evidence, file a lawsuit, seek a compensation claim on your behalf, and negotiate for the settlement. Don’t go into this process on your own; the insurance company will work with lawyers and so should you. This way you can be sure that you’ll receive the right settlement that will cover your medical expenses, lost wages but also coverage for pain and suffering. Some people with severe burn injuries may even seek a loss of future earnings coverage.
