Often, a burn injury victim is too seriously injured to initiate or participate in cause-and-origin investigation of a fire. The lawyers of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., recommend the following steps that a family needs to follow:
Make certain that skilled burn physicians are managing the patient recovery.
Photograph the area where the fire occurred.
Send a letter to the owner not to demolish the premises until your forensic fire experts can gain access to the property.
Photograph all injuries and ongoing treatment, especially when bandages are being changed.
Write down the names of all major caregivers during the hospitalization that can testify as to the pain and suffering of their patient.
Do not allow the injured to give any statements without speaking to a lawyer first.
Keep a copy of all medical bills, reports and news articles.
Do not post anything on Facebook or any other social media.
