Burn injuries are some of the most painful and disfiguring injuries imaginable. The physical and emotional pain after a burn injury is incredible. Beyond the physical scars, you’re left with emotional trauma that is impossible to quantify.

The burn injury attorneys at Pittman, Dutton & Hellums understand the upheaval of life a burn injury can cause you and your family. Contact us today at 205-900-4188.

 

Types of Burn Injuries

Burn Injuries are classified into three categories:

  • First-degree burn: These burns involve the top layer of skin, and cause the skin to become red, swollen and painful to the touch.
  • Second-degree burn: These injuries involve the first two layers of skin. Signs of a second-degree burn include a deep reddening of the burn area, blisters, leaking body fluid, and potential skin loss.
  • Third-degree burn: These severe burns permanently destroy skin tissue. The skin may be painless, with the exception of nearby second and third-degree burn areas. The skin may be dry and leathery with burnt black and white patches.

Immediate medical attention is required for 2nd & 3rd-degree burns. The recovery process is often painful and long. You may require several skin graft surgeries to repair the damaged areas. Burns to limbs often require amputation. Burn victims may lose their ability to sweat requiring extreme lifestyle changes resulting in additional emotional trauma. If you have suffered a burn injury due to the negligence of others, legal representation is highly recommended. 

Most Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Obviously, there is no shortage in the ways burn injuries can occur. We often see burn injury victims from the following:

Regardless of how you or a loved one were the victim of a burn injury – the burden on you and your family will be immense. From extensive medical care, missing time from work, physical and emotional rehabilitation, you and your family are likely to face financial burdens you’re unprepared for.
