If you suffered a burn, you have endured not just a physical injury, but a mental and emotional one as well. Burns are not only painful and frequently disfiguring, but often also result in those secondary ailments that can complicate a patient’s health and recovery. Some burn victims experience depression or anxiety, especially if their injury caused disfigurement.
Oresky & Associates, PLLC wants you to know that you deserve compensation if another party is liable for your burn injury. A settlement or judgment will compensate you for your losses including:
We can help people who suffer serious burn injuries through a responsible party’s negligence:
Burn injuries are classified by their severity. Those with first-degree burns suffer relatively minor symptoms and complications, while those with third- or fourth-degree burns suffer severe and, in many cases, life-threatening complications.
A first-degree burn affects only the epidermis, which is the outermost layer of skin. Those with first-degree burns experience pain at the burn site, as well as some redness and minor swelling. A first-degree burn does not cause blisters.
First-degree burns may be the result of brief contact with a hot surface. Generally, a first-degree burn can be treated at home and does not require medical attention. Some people may take an over-the-counter pain reliever to relieve the minor pain associated with a first-degree burn.
A second-degree burn affects the epidermis and the uppermost part of the next layer of skin, called the dermis. Individuals with second-degree burns experience pain, redness, swelling, and blistering at the burn site.
Second-degree burns could be caused by contact with hot surfaces, contact with dangerous chemicals, electrical shock, exposure to flames, exposure to radiation, exposure to hot water, and more.
Those with second-degree burns often require medical attention, including wound care and medication such as pain relievers or antibiotics. You may qualify to pursue a legal claim if you suffered second-degree burns, so speak with a burn injury attorney in New York City at Oresky & Associates, PLLC for help with your case.
A third-degree burn affects the epidermis and the entire dermis. A fourth-degree burn affects the epidermis, dermis, and underlying tissue. These are the most serious burn injures, and they often cause severe complications.
Some of the serious symptoms of a third- or fourth-degree burn include:
Those with a third- or fourth-degree burn may have nerve damage around the burn site.
A third- or fourth-degree burn is a major medical emergency requiring immediate care. Burn injury treatment is often classified into three phases:
If you or your loved one suffered third- or fourth-degree burns, you may be facing significant medical expenses, including emergency transportation, hospitalization, surgical costs, ongoing care, rehabilitation, and much more.
