Burn injuries are among the most painful injuries a person can endure. In addition to the extreme pain associated with a serious burn, they are also slow to heal, are closely associated with dangerous complications, and can be permanently disfiguring – especially when they are on or near the face. All told, a serious burn is a serious injury that requires extensive and expensive medical treatment. If someone else’s negligence leaves you with a serious burn, consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer today.
There are several complications that can make burns that much more dangerous, including:
If any of these apply, you may need to be transferred to a burn center to receive adequate necessary care.
Burns can be caused by many different kinds of accidents, but they are especially common to traffic and work accidents. Further, burns aren’t always caused by fire. Serious burns can be the result of accidents involving chemicals or electricity – such as accidents often associated with construction work.
The treatment for a serious burn injury is typically a long, arduous journey. The steps that generally make up the healing process can include the following and more:
A burn that is especially large or that covers a joint will likely also require ongoing physical therapy to help keep the skin supple and the joints flexible.
In addition to the medical treatments listed, a serious burn on the face or neck can require breathing assistance. Further, some burn victims require feeding tubes to remain nourished throughout the ordeal of healing. Finally, if the burned skin is beyond repair, skin grafts that replace the damaged area are often necessary. Plastic surgery is also available for cosmetic benefits and to help increase an affected joint’s flexibility. All told, the financial, physical, and emotional damages associated with a serious burn are difficult to overestimate.
