Bolsover car accident


How to deal with burns after a car accident

Most people think of broken bones when they think about the injuries that can be sustained in a Bolsover car accident, but one of the most dangerous types of injury you can sustain is a burn or burns. After the impact in a Bolsover car accident, it is possible that the car you are in could set on fire.

This is why it is important to get out of the car as soon as you can if possible, so that you are not at risk of being involved in a fire. If you are not able to escape the car in time and are burned, there are certain ways you need to treat the burn there and then, in order to be as safe as possible. Burns are very serious, particularly the types of burns you can sustain in a Bolsover car accident, so you need to know what to do right away.

If you had a serious accident and feel that it was the fault of someone else, you may be able to make a claim for compensation against the person who was at fault. The best way to make a claim is through an experienced personal injury lawyer, who will be able to work with you on a 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ basis to get you the compensation you deserve, and is also more likely to put together a strong case which has a good chance of being successful. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone to speak to the team about your Bolsover car accident  and make a start on your claim.

What to do yourself

  • Remove clothing. You need to let a burn breathe as soon as possible so that it does not get any worse or continue to burn even once it is away from the source of heat. If clothing is stuck to any burned areas, though, you should not try to remove it and wait for medical attention instead.
  • Run cool water over it. Only do this if you are dealing with first or second degree burns. A third degree burn (where the burn goes right through to the muscles and ligaments) should not be treated at all until a doctor can look at you. Do not apply ice as this will not help in the way that it would with other injuries, but actually make the problem worse.

When to call an ambulance

  • If the burn is large. If a burn is covering a large area of your body it needs to be seen in a hospital.
  • If the burn looks deep or infected. A second or third degree burn needs urgent medical attention, as does any burn which has dirt or grit in it, or looks infected.
