Some medical experts acknowledge fourth degree burns, but most classify these burns as severe third degree injuries.
Burns injuries are generally self-diagnosible. Common symptoms for a mild burn include:
Severe burns can lead to long-lasting scars and disfigurement. Depending on the severity of the burn, you may need surgery to repair the skin and possibly muscle function as well.
Burn injuries, especially serious burns, can be very painful. Even during the recovery process, burn injury victims usually experience anxiety and pain. Additionally, victims of serious burns can develop infections and may need ongoing hospitalization and medical care to avoid illness.
Surgery is one of the most common treatments needed to correct a serious burn. After a burn, the victim may suffer nerve damage; skin grafts may be necessary as well. To ease the recovery process, victims may need physical therapy, acupuncture, and long-term medication. If your accident was caused by another's negligence, these costs may be covered by a personal injury settlement.
