DAMAGES RESULTING FROM BURN INJURIES
A severe burn injury is one of the most painful types of injuries one can suffer. Second and third-degree burns involve severe skin and nerve damage and usually result in permanent scarring. Burns can occur as a result of fire, chemicals, or electricity. Serious burn injuries affect multiple layers of skin, causing painful blistering, swelling, and decreased blood flow. Inhalation burns that affect the lungs can inhibit the breathing process and become fatal.
Burn injuries are expensive to treat and victims are often subjected to multiple reconstructive surgeries. A person hurt by a burn injury must learn how to live with permanent physical reminders of the trauma they endured.
