Orange County Burn Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury Law Firm in Orange County, CA

Burn injuries are tissue damages created by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight or radiation. There are three types of burns, which classify how deep the burn is. First-degree burns affect only the outer layer of skin. Second-degree burns affect the outer layer and the layer of skin underneath that. Third-degree burns are the most serious types of burns which damage and in some cases destroy the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath, requiring skin or synthetic grafts.

Consequences of Burn Injuries

Burns are serious catastrophic injuries that can have devastating consequences to the victims. These injuries can cause swelling, blistering, scarring, shock and, in the most tragic of cases, even death. Because burn injuries damage the skin, burn victims are more susceptible to bacterial infections and sepsis, causing a widespread infection that can lead to shock and organ failure. In addition, burn injuries can damage blood vessels and cause fluid loss as well as softening muscles and tendons. Because these injuries are so serious, it is important to seek medical attention and the compensation you need and deserve. If your burn injuries were caused by someone else's negligence, you should seek assistance from an Orange County personal injury attorney.
