Delaware Burn Injury Accident Attorney
Burn Injury Lawyers In Delaware
Injuries caused by burns can be excruciatingly painful for the burn victim. Depending on the severity and degree of the burn they can cause severe physical, emotional and mental trauma. The deeper the burn, the longer and more extensive the treatment plan and recovery period. Burns are measured in terms of degrees which refer to the depth of the burn. A first degree burn is superficial and rarely poses a health threat to the victim. First degree burns allow the skin to perform its functions such as regulating body temperature and preventing infection. Second degree burns are deeper and damage the second layer of skin called the dermis. Often times they are also referred to as partial thickness burns. Loss of skin function is normally a result of second degree burns. Blistering of the skin is common with second degree burns. They are among the most painful due to the layer of skin that falls away, exposing the raw nerve. Third degree burns are the deepest and most severe. A third degree will burn and destroy any sensation in the nerves so the burn victim may feel nothing at the burn site.
