Burn injuries in Droitwich can be caused by a number of things. If yours was caused by faulty goods or in an accident you were not responsible for, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation.
Burns and scalds
Burns and scald are very painful injuries, and even small burns can remain painful for a long time. Most burns are caused by a dry heat such as fire and scalds by wet heat such as water or steam. These are not the only things that can cause this type of injury though, they can also be caused by
- Extreme Cold
- The sun
Any burn or scald sustained in any way at all, if it was through the fault or negligence of someone else may entitle you to make a personal injury claim.
Burn injuries in Droitwich
First, second and third degree burns are the mains ones that would be the subject of a personal injury claim for a living victim. Fourth, fifth and sixth degree burns are so bad the victim does not normally survive and they would be the subject of a fatal injury claim if the injuries were not the fault of the victim.
First degree burns are the mildest of the burns. They do not cause the skin to blister but the burnt area will be painful for quite a while.
Second degree burns are more severe and will generally be more painful. These burns will blister and care needs to be taken to avid infection when the blisters burst.
Third degree burns are the most sever that normally victims can survive, unless they cover a large area, when the patient might not recover. These burns are the ones that not only burn the skin, but also the soft tissues below the skin such as muscle. There are cases where these have been the least painful of burns because the nerves have been burned away.
The youngsters and the elderly
Young children and the elderly suffer more is they are burned or scalded because their skin is so fragile. They are also more likely to go into shock which can create a whole lot of other problems.
