Have you been severely burned in an accident caused by someone else's negligence or recklessness? If so, you deserve to file a personal injury claim against the liable party. Burn injuries often require expensive medical treatment and can leave disfiguring scars that damage a victim's self-confidence. Speak with an Alaska personal injury attorney right away if you are facing such physical and financial damages. Johnson Beard & Trueb, PC has the experience needed to win just compensation.Severity Levels for Burn Injuries
Burn injuries come in four different degrees of severity. First-degree burns only damage the topmost layer of the skin and, unless they cover a large area, cause little damage to the victim. Second-degree burns, however, can cause blistering, redness, swelling, and severe pain. Infection is a possibility without proper treatment, which means that medical care may be necessary.
Third- and fourth-degree burns are the worst, reaching into the lowest layers of the skin or into the fat, muscle, and even bone of the victim. These burns may require surgery to remove the damaged tissues and, in some cases, replace the tissue through skin-grafting.Contact an Anchorage Personal Injury Attorney
