Fires and Explosions
A burn injury lawsuit is the correct course of action for anyone burned through the course of their employment or due to the negligence of any person or company. Fires and explosions in the workplace are common causes of serious burns. A Long Beach burn injury lawyer may also be able to assist you if the fire occurred on your own property. Investigations by a burn injury attorney may prove that the fire or explosion was caused by a defective product or someone else’s careless actions. In any case, contact us to find out if we can help you.
Degrees of Burns
All burn injuries are classified by the degree of damage to the body, ranging from first degree burns, which are fairly minor, to third degree burns, which are very serious.
- First degree burns damage the top layer of skin and may cause redness or blistering.
- Second degree burns affect more than one layer of skin and cause severe pain, swelling and blistering.
- Third degree burns involve all layers of skin and the tissues underneath and can include muscles and bones.
Treatment and Complications
A burn injury lawsuit can help you deal with the complications of the injuries and help pay for treatments. Serious burns require hospitalization and victims are at severe risk of infections. Disfiguring injuries may require skin grafting to reduce scarring. In addition, burns can affect several other body functions, including the ability to regulate body temperature. The respiratory system can also develop serious problems as a result of burns.
