Sources of Burn Injuries
Oftentimes burn injuries are not seen as severe by others because they do not understand their causes, or how they could become so dangerous. For those who have suffered a burn injury, they know that a single bad burn can take you off your feet and demand costly medical treatment. To get you the compensation you deserve, we need to first know what happened to cause your serious burn.
Burns may be caused by a number of sources, including:
- Open flames
- Hazardous materials and chemicals
- Hot surfaces
In many burn accident cases, a defective product is found to be the source. From overheating due to malfunctioning batteries to faulty wiring, the average household appliance can become a source of dangerous heat without any warning to the user.
Degrees of Burn Injuries
A burn injury is not something that single-dimensional, able to be cured by a generic treatment. Due to the varying severity of burns, it could be possible that what is necessary to treat one burn will not be enough for the next. We will want to get you compensation amounts that are high enough to fully and comfortably treat your burn depending on its severity, not on what the insurance company thinks should be enough.
Burn injury severity degrees are:
- First: Red, tingling skin with little blistering. Solved with topical balms.
- Second: Widespread blistering and painful drying of skin.
- Third: Patches of dead skin causing deep, lingering damage to muscles and nerves.
- Fourth: Blackened skin. Underlying tissues can be entirely destroyed. May require amputation.
- Fifth and sixth: Damage is catastrophic and widespread around the body. Not survivable.
Take Care of Yourself with Litigation
Recovering after an accident often depends on the steps you are willing to take in response to what happened. If you do not move to have the negligent party behind your burn injury held accountable, no one else is going to do it for you. The good news is that you do not have to go down this legal path alone when you work with our Worcester personal injury attorneys. We can be your guide, each step along the way, and help you find a more comfortable and healthier future.
