There are three types of burns, and each one has its own unique characteristics. 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. If you have suffered a burn injury, seek help from our personal injury lawyers in Orange County.
Consequences Of Burn Injuries
Burns are serious catastrophic injuries that can have devastating consequences for the victims. These injuries can cause swelling, blistering, scarring, shock and, in the most tragic of cases, even death. Since burn injuries damage the skin, burn victims are more susceptible to bacterial infections and sepsis, causing widespread infections 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 a personal injury lawyer in Orange County.
