Maryland Burn Injury Lawyer

Burns are one of the most painful injuries you can ever experience. They can also be one of the most expensive injuries to treat. If you believe that the fire and your burn injuries may have been a direct result of someone else’s negligence, you can pursue compensation for your losses. A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate what can be a complicated legal system and help you get back on your feet.

Common Types of Burn Injuries

Here are a few types of burn injuries.

  • Thermal Burns: If your skin is burned by an external heat source including burning liquids or a fire, it is known as a thermal burn. A first-degree burn is when your superficial layer of skin is burned. Your epidermis will become red and there will be significant pain. A second-degree burn is when the burn reaches the second layer of skin known as the dermis. This will cause blistering of the skin. A third degree burn reaches all the way down to the subcutaneous layer of skin where many of your nerve endings are. Your skin may become charred and scarred for life.
  • Electrical Burns: This is when you are exposed to high-voltage electricity. This is a common injury on construction sites, but it can also occur at the home. The alternating current from the electrical outlets in your house can cause electrical burns if they were installed poorly or they are mistreated.
  • Chemical Burns: When you skin comes into contact with an acid you may get a chemical burn. These are particularly dangerous when they involve the eyes.
  • Radiation Burns: Over-exposure to X-rays from radiation therapy, medical imaging and even tanning beds may cause radiation burns.

The costs that burn victims face can escalate over a period of time. In addition to the immediate treatment of their wounds, repeat visits are common. In many cases rehabilitation may be necessary. Many burn victims may experience a significant change in their physical appearance, which may have social and psychological implications. Very often, multiple cosmetic surgeries may be required to treat severe burns. Post-operative infections can also cause much pain, suffering and serious complications.
