Burn Injuries FAQs
What Steps Should I Take After Suffering Serious Burns?
The first and most important step to take after experiencing a serious burn is to seek medical attention. If necessary, call 9-1-1. Immediate treatment can make a huge difference, depending on the severity of your burns. Your health is the most important step.
Next, you will want to contact an attorney. If your burn injury was sustained on the job, you can’t trust that your employer will put your best interests before their bottom line. If you’ll be filing an insurance claim, you may find that your claim is delayed, denied, or severely undervalued. Having a McAllen burn injury lawyer behind you can ensure that your best interests—and your ability to recover—are not being jeopardized.
What Causes Burn Injuries?
Exposure to heat, fire, chemicals, electricity, or even the sun are some of the ways burn injuries can happen. Burns can be minor, severe, or even life-threatening. Serious burns can affect your muscles, nerve tissue, and bone. Infections and other complications are common, so it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible.
Some common causes of burn injuries include:
- Equipment or appliance malfunction
- Construction accidents
- Traffic accidents
- Plant and refinery accidents
- Electrical accidents
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Well blowouts
- Oil rig fires and explosions
- Industrial accidents
- Pipeline explosions
What Are the Types of Burn Injuries?
The severity of your burn injury will place it into four categories. The most minor are first-degree burns. While they are painful, they do not require professional medical care. The other categories, beginning with second-degree burns, should be evaluated by a doctor. Second-degree burns extend beyond the first layer of skin. You may not need medical treatment, but infections—which would require professional care—are common.
Third- and fourth-degree burns are the most severe. They can be extremely painful, life-threatening, and require ongoing treatment. Multiple layers of skin are often damaged. In the most serious cases, muscle and tissue may also be affected. Even with the best medical care around, these burns have life-long repercussions. Even once the burns have healed, a person may have to deal with decreased mobility, scarring, and disfigurement.
