Experiencing a burn injury can be an extremely painful and traumatic experience. If you believe your injury was not your fault but due to the negligence or error of another, then injury solicitors in Lochmaben could help you claim compensation.
Types of burn injuries
A burn injury can occur in a variety of ways, whether it’s heat, electrical, chemical or even cold. The severity can range from minor to fatal. Burn injuries are classed as first-degree, second degree, third degree or forth degree.
- First degree. First degree burns are sometimes referred to as superficial burns. Only the top layer of the skin is affected.
- Second degree. This type of burn affects the deeper levels of the skin and there will often be blistering and the increased chance of infection.
- Third degree. Third degree burns injure all layers of the skin and tissue under the skin. The skin may appear white, black or leathery.
- Fourth degree. Forth degree burns are the most serious and affect the muscle, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels and bones. As a result shock, unconsciousness, fever and dehydration can occur.
It is imperative that you seek medical attention as soon as possible and this will also help your injury solicitors in Lochmaben to make your claim.
