Sadly, on Christmas Eve, a house in Dounby caught fire and spread to neighbouring houses, but luckily there were no serious casualties. It’s a devastating fact that fires can ruin lives and even be fatal. If you have been injured by a fire which took place within the past three years and someone else was negligent, you should consider making a claim for compensation through our personal injury lawyers.
Burn injuries can be very dangerous and it’s essential that you seek medical attention so that they can be professionally diagnosed and treated.
Different types of burns
There are four degrees of burn injuries. First-degree burns most commonly affect the top layer of skin which causes some pain and redness only for a short period of time. Second-degree burns will damage deeper layers of skin, and are more painful than first-degree burns. Third-degree burns mean that the skin is completely burnt. And fourth-degree burns extend through the skin and muscles and severely injure ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and bones, causing extreme pain and damage.
If you have experienced a burn, then it’s important that you disclose what form of burns they are as this can help your claim with your personal injury lawyer. Burn injuries can cause psychological and mental upset and you may require counselling. If you have had to seek counselling or a form of therapy, a personal injury lawyer will take this into consideration when processing the details of your claim.
