You Need Someone to Help You Fight for Compensation for Your Burn Injuries

Burns can be among the most serious of injuries. Other injuries can leave you with cuts, bruises, broken bones – and worse – but burns can permanently damage your skin and other tissue, which is part of why burns are considered among the most painful injuries possible. The pain and suffering can last long after the injury has healed. 

At the most basic level, burns are the result of exposure to too much heat. That heat can come from the sun, in the case of a beach or poolside sunburn, which is considered to be a mild burn. However, more serious burns are caused by more powerful forms of heat, including radiation, flames, steam, chemical sources, contact with hot surfaces, or electrical sources. Severe burns can cause life-long damage, pain, and disfigurement. The healing process from major burns is almost always long, painful, and with no guarantee of a full recovery. To help ensure you get the compensation you deserve from such injuries, you need to talk to our Alameda burn injury attorneys.

Severe Burns Can Be a Life-Changing Event

Burns come in degrees of severity. First-degree burns only affect the top layers of the skin – usually a reddening of the skin that can be painful, but usually requires no special care – and heal relatively quickly. Second-degree burns are worse, and should often receive professional medical treatment, but they still generally heal in a matter of weeks. 

Third-degree burns, however, destroy all layers of skin and result in tissue damage under the skin. Third-degree burns often require skin grafts and other surgeries can take years to heal and may require lifelong care. Further, third-degree burns are highly susceptible to complications, including infections and failed skin grafts, that can result in severe scarring, disfigurement, and loss of physical function above and beyond that already caused by the burns themselves. Multiple skin grafts may be necessary in the most serious cases, and victims might have lifelong disfigurement. 

Naturally, all of this medical care is expensive. It is highly specialized and can be required for years. Medical treatment for severe burns can be required for years. In addition to skin grafts and other surgeries – and skin grafts sometimes don’t take and need to be repeated – there is physical therapy as well as psychological counseling for mental health issues arising from disfigurement from the burns. 

Severe burns can interfere with your ability to work, as well as impair your ability to simply get around during everyday life. To obtain adequate compensation to cover all of these medical expenses and loss of work income, in addition to other damages for pain and suffering, you need to work with experienced Alameda burn attorneys.
