Types of Burns
When handling a burn injury case, it is important to understand the medical and financial impact of the various classifications of burns. Burns are classified by type or cause. The most common types are thermal burns, chemical burns and electrical burns. Thermal burns are caused by an external heat source, which raises the temperature of the skin and causes the death of skin and underlying tissue. Flames, steam, scalding liquids and hot metals can all cause thermal burns. Chemical burns are caused by caustic chemicals such as acids, alkalies, detergents or solvents coming into contact with the skin or eyes. Electrical burns are caused by electric current passing through the body.
Burns: More Serious Than First Glance
What the average person might not realize is that burns do not just scar a person physically and emotionally. If they are severe and extensive enough, they can cause internal damage. For instance, a victim’s heart could stop. He might experience damage to internal organs or to bone. The damage might be temporary or permanent, life-altering or life-threatening. Even first degree burns which heal in time can leave nasty scars. Plastic surgery and counseling could become necessary. It is typical for a victim of third degree burns to spend many days or weeks in hospital. During this time, the patient and, often, his family are not earning wages, yet they have many medical expenses to pay. A qualified burn accident lawyer will help you recover for all the losses the burn injury victims has incurred, which includes the devastating emotional trauma and life altering sense of self that occurs when someone has been seriously burned.
