Types of Burns and Treatments
The kind of burn inflicted on an individual depends on to main factors – time and temperature. Although your internal organs may suffer damage from a wound, they are often categorized by the extent of damage caused to the skin.
Categorization can be first degree, second degree, or third degree. Note too that sometimes degrees of burn can be referred to as either full-thickness burns or partial-thickness burns.
Burns can easily result in chronic scarring or even disfigurement. If not treated on time, a victim can suffer blood loss, tetanus, infections, shock, and in some cases, death.
Chemical and electrical burns are particularly severe because they can damage internal organs without any external symptoms.
Do not put up with the pain and trauma alone. Contact The Felice Law Group attorneys today so we can help you file a suit and get compensated.
Compensation after suffering a burn injury depends on many factors. For instance, if you were burned at work, you will most likely be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. You can also file a suit against your employer.
If you were burned while visiting another establishment like a retail store, school, or restaurant, you might be able to sue the owner or the management. Such suits often involve negligence. This means you will have to prove that the establishment owner had a duty of care towards you but breached that duty, in the event you got hurt.
At The Felice Law Group, our attorneys have decades of experience helping victims of first, second, and third-degree burns. Contact us today at (561) 444-8822, to help you begin the process of seeking monetary compensation for lost wages, pain, suffering, and medical expenses.
