If you have suffered burns or scalds through someone else’s negligence, then you should contact the solicitors in Kibworth to make an injury compensation claim.
Any form of burn or scalding can be extremely painful and distressing. Even if your burn is small then it will still hurt you quite badly for some time. If your burn is serious, then this can have more permanent effects, such as scarring and sometimes even death.
There are things other than heat that can cause burns, for instance:
You may be able to talk to the solicitors in Kibworth, if any of these things caused you a burn, and it was through someone else’s negligence.
The classification of burns for your solicitors in Kibworth
The classifications of burns are as follows. First, second and third degree burns are the most common forms that you will hear about. There are fourth, fifth and sixth degree burns, although you would only hear about these because they result in death.
- 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. The burns will have blisters covering the affected area. These blisters are at risk of infection once they have burst. The body loses fluids through these blisters and if the burns cover a large area, the victim can go into shock due to fluid loss.
- Third degree burns are the most severe that normally victims can survive, unless they cover a large area, when the patient might not recover. These burns do a lot of damage, the skin will be completely burned away and damage caused to the muscles, ligaments and tendons underneath. The nerves will have been destroyed so quite often they are less painful than first and second degree burns. These burns take a long time to heal and generally leave permanent scarring; skin grafts from unaffected area may be needed.
Any type of burns can be particularly painful for children and the elderly, as their skin is more delicate. There are lots of different ways that burns can happen.
We hope that no one will ever suffer from any types of burns or scalds, although if they do happen to you, through someones elses negligence, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline solicitors in Kibworth, so they can help you to make a personal injury compensation claim.
