Full Compensation For Burn Injuries
Burns are unlike any other type of injury. They are unique enough that there are sections within hospitals that are dedicated to serving the needs of those who have been severely burned.
For those who have been seriously burned, there are immediate and long-term health concerns that will need to be addressed.
Plastic Surgery, Infections And Other Long-Term Burn Issues
One of the aspects that sets burns apart from other types of injuries is the host of long-term issues that need to be dealt with, including:
- Scarring — Burns can create very serious scars that can cause physical pain, reduced mobility, sensitivity to sunlight and self-esteem issues. Plastic surgery and skin grafts can help alleviate some of these issues. But, plastic surgery in itself can be a difficult process to work through.
- Infections — Serious burns can create an ongoing propensity for infection. Our skin is one of the best protections against infectious agents. When it is damaged, the risk of contracting serious infections more readily can increase dramatically.
- Self-esteem issues — Severe burn scars, especially those in prominent locations such as the face and neck can draw a lot of unwanted attention. After being severely burned, people want to be able to put their health issues behind them and just live their lives. The scars may create stress and anxiety about being out in public and can interfere with the ability to work and otherwise carry on a normal life.
