Explosion & Burn Injuries

Vaping & E-Cigarette Cases

E-cigarette use can be dangerous. In some cases they explode.  This not only happens while vaping, but even while being carried or stored in a pocket.  Injuries from these e-cig explosions include serious burns, damaged skin, and damage to deep tissues and bones.   These cases can require months of treatment, including painful skin and bone grafts, or even facial reconstruction.

A properly used e-cig should not explode.  When it does, the injured person may have a personal injury claim for the pain and suffering they experience, medical expenses, and any other economic losses.

If you or a loved one has been injured, you should contact our lawyers immediately for a free case consultation.

Car Fires

About 1 in every 6 fires in the U.S. is a vehicle fire, and automakers are required to take fire safety into account when designing vehicles. Even in a high impact collision, a safe design should prevent a car from bursting into flame.

Most vehicle fires are caused by a mechanical failure or malfunction.  That means they don’t happen because the owner spilled gas or dropped a cigarette.  They happen because someone produced and installed a bad part or failed to shield against a fire hazard.

Every year about 500 people die in car fires.  Thousands more are injured.  Many of these personal injuries occur right here in Western New York.  Most of these fires are linked to design decisions made by the manufacturers and could have been prevented.

Car fires can cause burns that have a severe, long-lasting impact on the quality of a person’s life.  Major burns may require lifelong medical treatment.  Our firm has experience in fighting for the victims of preventable car fires and pursuing compensation for their injuries.

House Fires

Seven Americans die in house fires every day, and there are over 350,000 house fires every year.

A house fire — and the injuries it causes — can devastate a family.  After the fire, survivors and family members often face physical, financial, and emotional hardship that can last a lifetime.

If you were severely injured in a house fire, or a loved one was killed or catastrophically injured by a fire in his or her home, a house fire lawyer can help.  While our Buffalo and Niagara Falls law firm cannot replace all that was lost, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
