Do you need an accident lawyer in Sheringham?
Our expert team receives calls every day from people who need help with their accident compensation claims. These people have been hurt or injured in a variety of different accidents and these people often suffer from all different types of injuries. One particular injury we have recently seen an increase in is burns injuries. A burn injury can range from minor to extremely severe.
Most burns are minor injuries that occur at home or work. It is common to get a minor burn from hot water, a curling iron or touching a hot stove. Home treatment is usually all that is needed for healing these minor burn injuries and to prevent other problems, such as infection.
A more serious and severe burn injury however will require specialist treatment. In some cases surgery and skin grafts may have to be performed on the accident victim. The worst after effects of a burn injury is permanent scarring
There are many types of burns injuries:
- Electrical burns are caused by contact with electrical sources or by lightning.
- Chemical burns are caused by contact with household or industrial chemicals in a liquid, solid, or gas form. Natural foods such as chilli peppers which contain a substance irritating to the skin can cause a burning sensation.
- Radiation burns are caused by the sun, tanning booths, sunlamps, X-rays, or radiation therapy for cancer treatment.
- Friction burns are caused by contact with any hard surface such as roads (“road rash”), carpets, or gym floor surfaces. They are usually both a scrape (abrasion) and a heat burn. Athletes who fall on floors, courts, or tracks may get friction burns to the skin. Motorcycle or bicycle riders who have road accidents while not wearing protective clothing also may get friction burns.
- Heat burns (thermal burns) are caused by fire, steam, hot objects, or hot liquids. Scald burns from hot liquids are the most common burns to children and older adults.
