Burns can come from a variety of accidents, from auto accidents to house fires. Burn injuries leave painful roads to recovery for its survivors, often lasting years and including painful trips to the doctor, surgeries, or medications. If you or someone you love has been injured by burns due to negligence, hiring a Florida personal injury trial lawyer can help you recover damages and loss.
There are four common types of burns when considering burn injuries. Thermal burns are a result of propane or natural gas explosions. Scalding burns happen when the skin comes into contact with hot water and/or oil. Chemical burns are the reaction to toxic chemicals, including bleach. Electrical burns occur when the body comes into contact with high voltage electric currents.
Each burn may be classified into three categories. If a victim has a first-degree burn, then only the outer layer of the skin is injured. Typically these burns are minor and heal in a matter of days. Second-degree burns affect both the inner and outer layers of the skin. It often takes weeks to recover. Third-degree burns can burn all the way down to the burn. They are severe injuries and lead to permanent loss and damage.
Burns are extremely painful and take a long period of time to recover from. In that time, the emotional and financial loss can take a toll on victims. A personal injury lawyer can help you recover those damages from someone else’s negligent behavior.
