Burn and Electrical Injuries Lawyer
Fire was one of the most significant discoveries ever made by man, and it has become central to many other technologies. Electricity carries the light and heat energy of fire safely to power our modern world. When out of control, both fire and electricity can cause serious damage to the human body. Our skin and other bodily components are in no way fireproof, which is why burn and electrical injuries are some of the most serious of all catastrophic injuries.
Burns from fire, electrical or chemical sources are categorized by degree of seriousness, and they are as follows:
- First-degree burns – First-degree burns are considered superficial, only affecting the outer layer of skin, the epidermis.
- Second-degree burns – Second-degree burns involve the epidermis and part of the lower layer of skin, the dermis.
- Third-degree burns – Third-degree burns destroy the epidermis and dermis. They may go into the innermost layer of skin, the subcutaneous tissue. The burn site typically looks blackened and charred.
- Fourth-degree burns – Fourth-degree burns go through both layers of the skin and underlying tissue as well as deeper tissue, possibly involving muscle and bone.
Burn injuries are challenging to treat because burns differ in their types and severity. The higher degree of the burn, the more difficult and extensive treatments become. Even if electricity doesn’t leave a burn, it can cause a serious disruption to many bodily systems.
