Most Common Types of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are increasing in number across the board, and the severity of those burns has also increased as a result of car accidents. Burns can be a result of something going wrong mechanically inside of the car or something that reacted with a substance on the road. Either way, burn injuries can range in significance, but almost all will require significant medical intervention.

As a leading Omaha burn injury lawyer, Matthew G. Miller helps you receive the compensation that you need to recover funds used to cover medical costs, rehabilitation, lost wages, and more. He will work with medical professionals, accident reconstructionist, witnesses, and local law enforcement to ensure that you get the treatment you deserve without having to worry about your livelihood or mounting expenses.

There are four major types of burns that an accident victim could suffer from:

Thermal burns are the most common in car accidents, and they are caused by contact with fire, steam, hot liquids, and sources of heat. Chemical burns are also quite common in car accidents and can be caused by contact with chemicals, acids, or other fluids that are common in cars. Light burns can be caused by UV exposure or sunlight exposure, though they are not nearly as common. Radiation burns are caused by contact with nuclear radiation and are also not common at all in car accidents.

The amount of compensation that you can receive from a burn injury lawsuit depends on the severity of the burn. The severity of the burn impacts the amount of medical treatment and rehabilitation necessary to treat the wound. First degree burns are the least severe, where only the top layer of skin is damaged. These burns are characterized by minor inflammation and redness. Typically, they will heal within a week and can be treated in a non-medicated manner – but you should still get them looked at by a medical professional.

Second degree burns damage your skin below the top layer. After an accident, your skin may be red and blistered. These burns take weeks to heal and typically require medical intervention to ensure that they heal with the least possible scarring.

Finally, the worst burns are third degree burns that extend through all layers of skin and can impact your bones and organs, depending on where they are. Third degree burns can lead to charring, white skin, or black wounds. Those who experience third degree burns may have permanent nerve damage, hypothermia, and can even die.

After an accident involving a burn, you should get checked out by a medical professional, Not only will this help you to heal from the damage, but it will create a record that you can then use in your case with a top burn injury lawyer in Omaha, Matthew Miller.

Compensation for Your Car Accident Burn Injuries

Burns rank among the most expensive and traumatic injuries to seek medical treatment for after a car accident. Even a first degree burn may become infected and can require quite significant medical treatment. Third degree burns, in particular, can take years and years to heal and can severely impact your quality of life and inhibit your ability to work.

If you are the victim of a burn injury after a car accident, you will need an experienced personal injury and burn attorney to protect your rights and seek the compensation that you deserve. With over 30 years of experience in Omaha, attorney Matthew G. Miller is the man for the job.
