New Jersey Burn Injury Attorneys
Burn injuries are among the worst type of injury because they are so painful and completely disabling. Victims often endure multiple rounds of reconstructive surgeries, followed by grueling physical therapy to retain mobility. The person's appearance is often altered, which also alters their psyche, their relationships, their employability and other facets of life.

- Hospital burn ward care
- Home nursing care
- Skin grafts and plastic surgery
- Physical rehab
- Pain medications
- Expensive skin care products
- Lost earning capacity

- Profound pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
Holding the Negligent Parties Accountable for Burn Accidents
We have handled a spectrum of burn injury cases resulting from explosions, fires, electrical shock, motor vehicle accidents, friction burns and chemical burns. We have a network of liability experts in many fields who can help us trace the negligence of an employer, landlord, construction contractor, manufacturer, driver, utility company or other person or entity. From faulty wiring or defective boilers to an inadequate sprinkler system or fire alarms, we work to show that the accident could and should have been prevented.
When there are major injuries, the negligent parties and their insurers have a vested interest in limiting the compensation. At Scura, Wigfield, Heyer & Stevens, LLP, you have the full resources of our firm behind you in holding them responsible for the permanent harm and the lifelong care needs. We are prepared to go all the way to trial if necessary to secure full damages for our burn injury clients.
