The law firm of Juskewitch offers more than 16 years of experience dedicated to helping clients who have been seriously injured in an accident or as a result of negligence.

Contact our burn injury attorneys to discuss how we can help.

A burn injury can be caused in a number of ways, including: car fires, explosions, electrical accidents, and exposure to dangerous consumer products, such as insecticides, bleach, cleaning products containing acid, and many other chemicals. In addition, throughout New York City, many individuals suffer serious burn injuries resulting from exposure to hot steam seeping from the steam pipes through manholes or drains in the streets.

Burns and Electrocutions

We investigate the cause of the accident and determine who is liable for your injuries. We pursue financial compensation to reduce the financial strain of medical bills and expenses, such as the expense of hospitalization, skin graft surgery, plastic surgery, and other medical treatment. Additionally, we pursue rightful compensation for disfigurement and pain and suffering.


At Juskewitch, we pursue financial recovery on behalf of construction workers, utilities workers, and consumers who are electrocuted in an electrical accident, lightening storm, or as a result of a defective product. Electrocutions are very grave injuries, often resulting in death or serious injury. We help injured clients obtain appropriate medical care and work hard to understand the full extent of their injury.

If you or a loved one has been electrocuted, it is important to seek proper medical attention. While serious burns are usually immediately apparent, other injuries may not surface as quickly. For example, we have successfully obtained a settlement on behalf of a man who was determined to have suffered brain damage which was not immediately apparent following the electrocution.

When working with destructive chemicals or dangerous products, it is important to follow the instructions and keep the room properly ventilated.

Additionally, when working with consumer products, it is important to keep the product containers and receipts as they may be important in your case.

Finally, if you have suffered a burn injury or electrocution injury, it is critical to speak with an experienced lawyer right away. We will promptly explain your rights and help you determine how to move forward.
