Burn injuries are painful injuries that are slow to heal, and that often lead to secondary health problems that reach far into victims’ futures. Burn injuries are common in traffic accidents, accidents on the job (especially in dangerous occupations like construction and manufacturing), premises liability claims, and more. If someone else’s negligence leaves you or someone you love with a serious burn injury, you need the professional legal counsel of an experienced burn injury attorney in Belmont on your side. 

Burn Injuries

The Mayo Clinic shares that burns often require the specialized care of burn centers, especially for burns that cover more than 10 percent of one’s body, that are very deep, and/or that are on the face, groin, or feet. Burns can be caused not only by exposure to heat and fire but also by exposure to chemicals, radiation, or contact with an electrical current. 

Further, the severity of burns, which can be classified from 1st-degree to 3rd-degree burns (depending upon the severity of the injury – with 3rd-degree burns being the most severe) can vary significantly. Finally, burns can go beyond damaging the skin and can leave the underlying muscles, tendons, and even bone severely damaged and highly susceptible to life-threatening infections. All told, burns are some of the most serious and painful injuries an accident victim can sustain. 

Treatments

The effects of serious burns often call for highly invasive life-saving treatment approaches that – in addition to medications for the extreme anxiety that is closely associated with violent, burn-inducing accidents – can include:

  • Assistance with Breathing – If your burn is on or around your face, you can experience swelling in your throat, which requires a breathing tube.
  • Techniques to Ease Blood Flow around the Burn – If the scab that results from the burn encircles a limb, your chest, your torso, or anywhere else, it can tighten as it heals and can cut off circulation in that area. If the scab encircles your chest, it can interfere with your ability to breathe. Sometimes, this scab, which is known as an eschar, must be cut to relieve the dangerous buildup of pressure.  
  • Feeding Tube – Large burns can lead to the need for nutritional support, which is accomplished via a feeding tube. 
  • Skin Grafts – Skin grafts are surgeries that replace burn-damaged skin with healthy skin from another area of your body.
  • Plastic Surgery – Plastic surgery is a means of reconstruction, which can improve not only the appearance of burn-scarred skin but can also aid joint flexibility. 

Burn injuries are exceptionally serious injuries that tend to require serious, ongoing care.
