Burn and Electrical Injuries Lawyer
Most people have suffered a mild to moderate burn. While first and second-degree burns are painful, they only affect the epidermis and maybe a little of the dermis layer of skin. Catastrophic burns and electrical injuries go deeper into the tissue than the skin. Third and fourth-degree burns damage the tissue under the skin, including fat, muscle, nerves and ligaments. Not only can this cause intense pain and functional issues, but there are also often physical deformities. Catastrophic accidents that can cause burns include:
- Auto, motorcycle, boat, train and airplane fuel fire accidents
- Chemical exposure accidents
- Electrical shock accidents
- Building fires
Severe burn injuries require extensive medical care and treatments that can take months and even years. Victims could need skin grafts and many other surgeries to repair tissue damage, and they may suffer from chronic pain and other disabilities.
