Burn Injury Lawyer in New York
While most people think of burn injuries as being related to fire other factors such as radiation, heat, chemicals and electricity may also cause burn injuries too. A person may suffer a thermal burn from boiling water or a chemical burn from acid. Radiation burns result from overexposure to UV lamps and electrical burns result from electrical shocks.
All burns are classified by degrees – first degree, second degree, third degree, fourth degree, fifth and sixth degree burns, which refer to the depth of tissue damage involved. First-degree burns usually involve damage to the outer skin layer and heal rapidly. Second-degree burns cause damage to the outer and inner layers of skin and third-degree burns cause significant damage to blood vessels and muscles.
Fourth-degree burns have gone right through the skin into muscles and tendons and have resulted in charring and extreme damage to the hypodermis, usually requiring skin grafting. Fifth-degree burns indicate the hypodermis is completely gone and the ligaments, muscles, tendons and bones may be damaged. Sixth-degree burns are frequently fatal and often burn the bones. If a victim survives this level of suffering, they may face amputation.
A serious burn injuries often require skin grafts, reconstructive surgery, and a period of physical therapy. In the end, the financial impact of a burn injury can be quite substantial, not to mention the pain and suffering involved.
