In the aftermath of an explosion, it is not uncommon for anyone near the blast to have sustained serious injuries. While many of these injuries are a direct result of the blast wave or from flying debris, victims in these incidents also regularly sustain serious burns. In many cases, third-degree burns affect explosion injury victims. At the Doan Law Firm, our explosion accident attorneys want to discuss these burn injuries and what victims can do to recover compensation in the aftermath.
If you sustain third-degree burns due to an explosion, you need an attorney who will be there to answer your questions and address your concerns. Turn to the Doan Law Firm.
An explosion injury attorney will be an invaluable resource for victims who have sustained burn injuries in the incident. An attorney will handle every aspect of a case, including:
A third-degree burn is also called a “full-thickness burn” and is generally considered to be one of the most severe types of burn injuries. Third-degree burns destroy the epidermis and dermis and may go into the innermost layer of skin on the body, the subcutaneous tissue.
Third-degree burns are often caused by explosions. These burn injuries can be caused by the explosion itself or by fires started due to the explosion. In some cases, explosion burns are caused by flames and high heat. In other instances, chemical burns are sustained by victims.
Burn injuries are often devastating for victims, as they can lead to immense physical pain and significant scarring and disfigurement. Burn victims often have to worry about the threat of contracting an infection in the immediate aftermath of the burn or at any point during the recovery. Victims of third-degree burns often require extensive medical care, surgery, and physical therapy in order to make a full recovery.
Finally, burn injury victims can sustain immense physical and emotional pain and suffering, including post-traumatic stress disorder. Emotional and psychological damages are more likely to occur when there is visible scarring or disfigurement caused by the burn.
