Have you been exposed to severe burns due to an accident or injury? If you have been exposed to severe burn injuries whether in a car accident or other type of accident, then you need to seek medical attention immediately. The cost of treating burns can be very high and you should consider hiring a burn injury lawyer. Do your research and hire the best personal injury lawyer for burns you can find.
There are different types of burns which a person can suffer, rated by degree. Each degree is based on the severity of damage to the skin, with first-degree being the most minor and third-degree being the most severe
First-degree burns are not too severe. You should still seek medical attention within a short period to avoid cases where your skin will be exposed to more complications. First-degree burns are characterized by redness on the skin with non-blistered skin. They cause minimal damage to the skin hence they are referred to as superficial burns. They affect the outermost part of your skin. Signs of first-degree burns include:
- minor inflammation, or swelling
- dry, peeling skin occurs as the burn heals
First degree burns usually heal within 7 to 10 days without scarring. You should see a doctor if the burn affects a more than three inches of your skin or if it’s on your face or a major joint.
Symptoms of second-degree burns include thickening and blisters on your skin. Second-degree burns are more serious than first-degree burns because the damage goes beyond the top layer of the skin. Second-degree burns make the skin blister and become red and sore.
