Burns can be a common injury around the house, from touching a hot stove or the surface of an iron. These types of burn injury are typically easy to recover from, however, some burns are so severe that they cause lasting damage.
A burn occurs when the skin in an area is damaged so badly that the skin cells die. Extremely severe burns can result in scarring and even in some cases, death. Sometimes a burn can be so severe that it travels past the layers of skin and actually damages the tendons and bones.
If you have been burned in an accident that was not your fault, you are probably experiencing pain and suffering, extensive medical costs, and perhaps lost wages. At Lowenthal & Abrams, we want to help you obtain the compensation that you may deserve. Though no amount of money could relieve your suffering, we would like to help you face the burdens that lie ahead.
What Are the Different Types of Burns?
There are four types of burns that could occur due to a chemical, electrical, fire, or hot liquid accident. These types of burns include:
- First degree – red skin
- Second degree – blisters, thickening of the skin in burn area
- Third Degree – severe blistering and thickening of skin with white tint
- Fourth Degree – symptoms of a third degree burn that extends into tendons and bones
If you or a loved one has been burned in an accident to the point that you are still suffering or experiencing decreased quality of life, you may need the help of a qualified personal injury attorney.
