Dallas Injury Lawyer Can Help
Burn injuries are one of the longest lasting and most painful injuries that a person can suffer. A burn can be sustained in a fire, but electrical or chemical burns are also common injuries in workplace and industrial accidents. In addition, inhalation injuries, in which a person inhales a toxic gas and suffers internal burns, are also unfortunate occurrences in industrial accidents. Depending on the severity of your burns, medical treatment may be simple or very intricate and on-going.
If you have suffered a burn that has made your everyday functioning difficult or almost impossible, we encourage you to call a Dallas injury lawyer from Kirkendall Dwyer LLP. A personal injury lawyer can relieve you of the burden of fighting for your own rights. The right lawyer will be as zealous in representing you as you would be in representing yourself.
There are four degrees of burn injuries:
- First degree burn: there is damage to the outer layer of skin
- Second degree burn: there is damage to the outer layer of skin, as well as the layer beneath
- Third degree burn: all layers of skin or damaged or destroyed, as are the tissues beneath
- Fourth degree burn: the burn spreads all the way down to the subcutaneous tissue, the nerves, muscle, and bones
These medical treatments for burn injuries can inflict serious financial hardship on a typical family. But it is critical that you secure medical treatment immediately. Burns have the best chance of healing without complication when they are treated early and aggressively. Complications include:
- Bacterial infections
- Widespread infection (sepsis) that leads to shock and organ failure
- Permanent damage to joints and bones
- Damage to blood vessels
