Because Your Victory Is Our Victory
Among the most painful and devastating of all bodily injuries are those involving serious burns. The physical, psychological, and financial fallout from these painful and often life-threatening wounds can last for years.
Dangers of Burn Injuries
Burn victims often must be treated in specialized burn units, endure pain and repeated surgeries, months or years of physical impairment, and permanent disfigurement and scarring. Serious burn victims are often at risk for a deadly infection called sepsis which spreads through the blood and can affect the entire body. This can be followed by shock and organ failure. When these injuries have been caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of others, victims may seek compensation to aid in their recovery.
Common Causes of Serious Burn Injuries
Burns damage the protective layer of skin that surrounds and protects your body as well as the tissue that lies beneath. The seriousness of a burn depends on its depth. The most severe, known as fourth-degree burns, can extend to damaging muscle, glands, organs, and even bone and nervous system.
These burns can occur in many ways including:
- Scalding liquids and/or steam
- Flammable liquids or gases
A related burn injury occurs from smoke inhalation which is a common cause of death from fires.
