Injury Claims: Serious Burns in Baton Rouge
Burn injuries are some of the most difficult to treat, and can have long-term consequences, including loss of abilities, loss of limbs, severe scarring and disfigurement. Thermal burns are very common for most people at home and the workplace, and are caused by direct exposure to flame, hot surfaces, steam or scalding from hot liquids. Electrocution burns occur beneath the skin in addition to on the surface, resulting from electrical flow through the body. Chemical burns are a bit different, causing a burn when a chemical such as an acid is put into contact with the skin.

Burn injuries occur most often due to poor safety precautions or general negligence by people who may be inexperienced, may not fully understand the risks involved, or may be demonstrating careless behavior. First-degree burns are the least serious and can be identified by redness or swelling, white skin or skin that looks charred, or peeling skin. Second-degree burns are damaging not only to the surface skin, but also deeper layers. Third-degree burns are very severe and affect all layers of skin. Long-term recovery times are expected, due in large part because of the extent of damage done to the skin.
