A burn injury is one of the most serious types of injuries, as it leaves the victim especially vulnerable to everyday germs and bacteria. A person who has suffered a second or third degree burn will typically need to be kept in isolation until they heal enough that they can withstand being exposed to these germs. Even the common cold can kill a burn victim.
Burn victims also experience other complications, including:
- Cosmetic deformity
- Decreased immune function
A burn victim will usually have to be treated at a special hospital with a burn unit, and will require extensive medical care, including:
- Skin grafts
- Pressure garments
If you or a loved one have been the victim of a burn injury, it is essential that you contact a seasoned personal injury attorney as quickly as possible. The insurance companies are likely to offer you a paltry settlement which will not go far in covering the medical costs you have incurred, however, an experienced attorney can advocate for you to be awarded the full and fair compensation you deserve.
