San Mateo Burn Injury Attorney
San Francisco Area Chemical Burns Lawyer
Burn injuries are extremely painful. That is the one thing that is common, what ever the degree of burn, the material that burned you, the source of the accident, or who caused the accident.
Burn injuries can be caused by flame, hot water, chemicals, contact with a hot surface, electricity and other terrible ways.
Another factor common to most burn injuries is scarring. Unlike other injuries, these are a lasting reminder of a horrible accident. Modern surgical techniques can perform miracles in some instances. But multiple, painful surgeries may be necessary. Children, tragically, have the most vulnerable skin, and are the most vulnerable emotionally.
First-degree burns are the least harmful and generally do not scar. Second-degree burns blister layers of skin, but still rarely leave significant scarring. Third-degree burns damage nerves and every layer of skin, and leave thick scars. Burn scarring may be disfiguring or even (with contracture scars) permanently tighten the skin, affecting the underlying muscles and tendons, limiting mobility and damaging nerves.
