Third-and Fourth-Degree Burns
Unlike first- and second-degree burns‚ which affect only the epidermis and dermis (the outer layers of the skin)‚ third and fourth-degree burns can extend beyond the skin into the tissue and sometimes even all the way into the muscle. Treatment may involve extensive medical care‚ surgery‚ and skin grafting‚ the costs of which can amount to tens‚ even hundreds of thousands of dollars. And even the best medical treatment may not get fully rid of the scars and disfigurement that often result from severe burns.
There are three main types of chemical agents that cause burns: acids‚ bases‚ and hydrocarbons. These agents can be found in common industrial and household products‚ including bleach‚ ammonia‚ drain cleaner‚ solvents‚ degreasing agents‚ etc. Possible damage is not just restricted to skin and tissue damage. If inhaled in gaseous form‚ these chemicals can cause direct injury to the lungs and respiratory system‚ resulting in serious complications.
Pit Fire Burns
What is supposed to be a good time with friends and/or family can quickly turn into a nightmare when people behave irresponsibly around a pit fire. Too many people have been injured or even killed because they or others around them carelessly allowed combustible or otherwise unstable materials to make contact with the pit fire‚ creating an explosion.
Other Types of Severe Burns
There are other types of burns which can lead to scarring‚ disfigurement‚ organ damage‚ and death‚ including:
- Factory‚ tanker‚ and other industrial explosions
- Electrical accidents
- Building fires
- Scalding burns
- Defective Products
Whatever type of severe burn you have suffered‚ you can regain normalcy in life by gaining access to the best medical care available – with help from a trusted San Diego burn injury attorney‚ of course.
