Burn Injury Attorneys Augusta, Evans, Waynesboro, Thomson
Burns cause damage to skin and tissue through an external source like heat, electricity, chemicals, scalding liquid, and radiation. Most burns are relatively mild and heal with proper wound care, but some burns are more severe, and permanently damage nerves, and are painful. These wounds can cause immense and prolonged suffering. When you’re burned as a result of someone else’s negligence or malice, you may be entitled to compensation as significant as your recovery period; even when your physical scars heal, your emotional needs must still be met. Victims of burns are often left with painful and expensive treatments for swelling, blistering, infections, scars, and even death. Hawk Law Group will protect your rights or those of a loved one.
Often, burns occur in addition to or as a result of other events. A collision with another vehicle could yield airbag explosion injuries; faulty electrical wiring in a new building could lead to smoke inhalation and internal burns; defective lighters could blow up in your hand. It’s possible your personal injury case is complicated, with many moving parts. That’s the moment to call Hawk Law Group, so we can advocate for you and help you navigate a complicated journey to recovery.
Immediate care for your burn injuries is directly related to your prognosis. Physicians have an arsenal of treatments at hand for various burns in different stages and techniques might include pain mitigation and management, creams and shots, antibacterial agents and drugs, intravenous hydration and medication—some more severe cases may need dead tissue and debris removed from wounds before they can heal. Some patients can’t breathe or eat after scarring in the lungs or esophagus and will require breathing and feeding intubation. After acute care comes rehabilitation, where healing and reducing long-term scarring is the goal. It’s a painful and emotional process, and it can include multiple procedures for skin grafts. Physical therapy is often a component to keep your body and skin flexible as it heals so that new skin remains supple and doesn’t restrict your movements. Throughout the process of recovery, counseling might be a necessary to help you cope with having been injured in such a scary way.
