Medical Treatment for Serious Burn Injuries
Although the number of injuries and deaths attributed to fires and other sources of burn injuries have decreased in recent years, fire deaths still rank as fifth for the leading causes of unintentional injury-related deaths, and the cost associated with treating burns has increased considerably. Depending on the severity of a burn injury, victims may be at risk of serious complications, including dehydration, shock, infection, electrolyte or fluid imbalance, and tissue swelling that can interfere with breathing and circulation. In cases of severe burn injuries, victims may require treatment in specialized burn care centers where they can be attended to by medical professionals that specialize in treating burns.
In addition to the physical, psychological and emotional consequences resulting from serious burn injuries, burn injuries can also require long-term treatment and rehabilitation, which can lead to costly medical expenses. The costs associated with treating burn injuries can be overwhelming, leaving burn survivors to deal with a seemingly insurmountable debt. Fortunately, financial compensation may be available to burn victims whose injuries were caused by the actions of another person. If you have suffered from a burn injury and you believe you may be entitled to financial compensation, contact the Corpus Christi burn injury attorneys at Bandas Law Firm today.
Long-Term Effects of Burn Injuries
Immediate care for burn victims initially involves helping the individual survive the injury. Once this is accomplished, attention is then focused on long-term treatment and rehabilitation. Burn injuries can be physically devastating, often requiring lengthy hospital stays, followed by intensive rehabilitation. In addition to the required physical care, the psychological and social effects of devastating burn injuries cannot be downplayed. Many burn injury victims suffer from significant psychological side effects associated with their injuries, including depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance and grief. In addition, some burn injuries may be severe enough to prevent victims from returning to work for a long period of time, which can result in an even more significant financial burden.
