Burn injuries can be some of the most painful injuries, and take the longest to heal. Burn accident victims are often hospitalized for months. There may be a strong risk of infection. Burned tissue such as skin or internal organs need time to heal after a burn injury. Pain management is often challenging. Scarring and disfigurement are often a painful consequence of a burn injury and may trigger a need for ongoing psychological therapy.
Financial compensation cannot undo the harm done by a burn injury, but it can go a very long way toward helping you cope after an accident such as a/n:
- Gas well explosion
- Injury caused by contact with hazardous equipment used in coal mining or other industries and endeavors
- Chemical spill or exposure to toxic fumes
- Electric shock accident
Your recovery timetable and prognosis after a burn injury will depend in part on what type of burn you suffered:
- First-degree, second-degree or third-degree burn (listed going from least to most harmful)
- Thermal burn, scalding, radiation burn, electrical burn, friction burn or inhalation injury
