MN BURN INJURY LAWYERS WHO UNDERSTAND THESE CASES
Burn injury accidents are some of the most serious and life-changing injuries our attorneys handle. A burn is damage to your body’s tissues caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight or radiation. Scalds from hot liquids, steam, building fires, flammable liquids and gases are the most common causes of burns. Our Minnesota burn injury lawyers see these types of cases mostly in many situations, including when the burn is caused by a defective product or accidental misuse of a product, explosions, or when a caregiver spills hot water on a person or accidentally puts someone into scalding hot water. Another kind of burn is an inhalation injury, caused by breathing smoke.
TYPES OF BURN INJURIES
Burns are considered one of the most painful types of injury a person can suffer, with the treatment of burns sometimes as painful as the original burn itself. There are three types of burns:
- First-degree burns damage only the outer layer of skin
- Second-degree burns damage the outer layer and the layer underneath
- Third-degree burns damage or destroy the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath
CONSEQUENCES OF BURN INJURIES
Being burned can result in swelling, blistering, scarring and, in serious cases, shock and even death. A burn injury also can lead to infections because of the damage your skin’s protective barrier. Burn injuries can cause debilitating results to the victim – including nerve damage, limited range of motion, and, of course, major scarring or disfigurement that will remain with a burn victim for the rest of their lives. Burn injury accidents can also cause considerable emotional and mental challenges for the burn victim and can require extensive, expensive treatment.
