We Know What You are Going Through.

A serious burn injury is damage to your body's tissue. It can be caused by radiation, electricity, sunlight, chemicals, or heat. The most common causes of burns include building fires, flammable liquids and gases, and scalds from hot liquids. While burns can happen in several ways, they often happen due to car accidents but can also occur in train, boating, airplane accidents, or when defective consumer products fail.

Accidents leading to severe burn injuries can have overwhelming consequences on the victim. Multiple surgeries, long term hospital care, and rehabilitation may be required. Swelling, blistering, scarring, shock, and in some cases death can occur due to burns. Treatment for burns can vary depending on depth and size of the burn. Treatment can include cleaning, infection prevention, skin replacement, and nutrition.

There are four categories of burns from first degree to fourth degree. First degree burns occur when only the outer layer of skin is affected. Second degree burns occur when the burn penetrates through the first layer of skin and damages skin layers beneath the first layer. Third degree burns, are those that pierce through the outer layers of skin. They burn into the lowest skin layer that sits above muscles and bone. Significant scarring is usually found with these types of burns. Fourth degree burns, are the most severe classification of burns. This type of burn pierces through all layers of skin damaging muscle, bone, or internal organs. These burns may require amputation and in many cases, lead to death.

What should you do after suffering from a Severe Burn Injury?

The impact of a severe burn can be devastating on a person and their family. After a severe burn occurs you may not know what to do or where to turn. You may not be able to work or take care of your family. The insurance companies are working to minimize your recovery, and it can almost be impossible for a person or family member to recover anything on their own. While there is no amount of money that will make up for the victim's injuries, monetary value is the only remedy the law provides. Retaining the top medical experts, economists, and life planners is essential to obtaining the best recovery.
