We commonly associate burn injuries with fire. But there are a variety of other ways people can be burned in accidents.
- Car accidents – The impact of a crash or malfunctioning equipment can cause a fire, resulting in severe burn injuries. However, accident victims may also experience friction burns if their skin rubs against a hard surface, such as a road or sidewalk.
- Defective products – If a product has an electrical defect, a person can be burned if their skin touches the electrical current. People can be electrocuted if they unknowingly touch exposed or poorly wired products.
- Hot liquids or materials – People may experience painful burns if scalding liquid, such as coffee or water, is spilled on them. The skin may also be burned if it encounters hot steam.
- Chemicals – Solvents and detergents may contain abrasive chemicals that can cause burns if it meets a person’s skin.
Burns are characterized by how deeply they impact a person’s skin. Those that touch just the first layer of skin are known as first-degree burns. Your skin may turn and swell, but these minor burns typically don’t require medical attention and usually heal in a week or two.
Second-degree burns penetrate a person's second layer of skin. These are painful and may result in blistering and scarring. You need to seek medical help for second-degree burns.
Extensive burns that reach the third layer of skin can irreparably damage a person's nerve endings. The affected skin has a burned look and may appear black, gray, or white.
If the damage extends beyond all three layers of skin, these can be life-threatening. Known as fourth-degree burns, a person's muscles, bones, and organs may be permanently damaged. Extensive medical treatment, surgency, and lengthy hospital stays are expected for injuries this severe.Why Seek Help from a Hollywood Burn Injury Lawyer?
