Florida Car Accident Burn Injury Lawsuit Lawyers
Burn injuries are the most traumatic type of injuries that occur in car accidents. Motor vehicle fires are very common after a serious crash, and occupants inside a motor vehicle who sustain burn injuries face a future of pain and highly-involved medical treatment.
Car accident-related burn injuries come in many different forms of burn injuries. Burn injuries are classified by their degree of severity. The grade of burn injury is demarcated by the layers of skin that have been damaged. The degrees of burns are:
- First-degree burn injuries: A first-degree burn involves the outermost skin layer, known as the epidermis. A first-degree burn exhibits a patch of red, painful skin.
- Second-degree burn injuries: Second-degree burns that involve the epidermis and next layer called the dermis. Second-degree burns exhibit swelling and painful blisters.
- Third-degree burn injuries: Third-degree burns affect the epidermis, dermis, and may include muscle tissue and bone. Skin tissue cannot regenerate after third-degree burns.
..."When accident victims are able to prove negligence on the part of the other driver and they file their claim with the court before the statute of limitations expires, burn victims might be qualified to file for compensation from the at-fault driver."
Burns are excruciatingly painful and can lead to permanent disfigurement. Severe burn injuries can also be life-threatening.
Burns caused by a motor vehicle accident are typically the result of a fire after impact or an explosion. If an accident victim cannot escape the vehicle before the explosion or the fire spreads, they will likely receive significant burns burn injuries. In recent news, lithium-ion batteries in some electric cars have been responsible for severe burn injuries resulting in fatalities.
Medical treatment of burn injuries include:
- skin grafts,
- infection control, and
- life long care of scar tissue formation and burned skin.
Accident victims who have sustained severe burn injuries usually have to undergo continuous skin treatments and infection control procedures.
