Dealing with the aftermath of a fire
Do you live in West Chiltington? Have you been injured in a fire that was caused by someone else? If the answer to both questions is yes, you could claim compensation through a personal injury lawyer in West Chiltington by speaking to a helpful and professional adviser at Accident Advice Helpline.
Burn injuries can be very dangerous and therefore it’s essential that you seek medical attention so that your injuries can be professionally diagnosed and treated. Having a doctor’s note of the injuries you have sustained can also help you dramatically in your claim for compensation through a personal injury lawyer in West Chiltington.
What types of burns are there?
- First-degree burns only affect the top layer of skin, causing minor pain and redness for a short period.
- Second-degree burns affect deeper layers of skin, which are more painful than first-degree burns. Second-degree burns are also accompanied by redness and blistering.
- Third-degree burns completely burn the skin and affect the top layer of muscles. Blistering and scarring are typical with these types of burns, which sadly can be fatal if a large area of the body is affected.
- Fourth-degree burns extend through the skin and muscles and severely injure ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and bones. Very dangerous and can be fatal.
If you have experienced any of the above types of burns, it’s important that you disclose the form of burns in your claim as this can help your claim with a personal injury lawyer West Chiltington. Not only can they cause physical injuries, but burn injuries can cause psychological and mental upset and you may require long term counselling if you have been badly disfigured. If you have had to seek counselling or a form of therapy, a personal injury lawyer in West Chiltington will take this into consideration when processing the details of your claim.
