An Experienced Texas Burn Injury Attorney Will Advocate for Victims - Tell Them You Mean Business
Household fires account for many burn injuries. But we have seen people in Texas severely burned during recreational activities involving gas-powered motor sports. Even household chores involving gasoline engines, such operating a lawn mower or leaf blower, may lead to injury.
Restaurant patrons also can sustain burn injuries after consuming scalding liquids.
Regardless of where they occur, burn injuries caused by fire, heat, chemicals, electricity, friction or liquids can be severe and lead to serious scarring and permanent disfigurement. It is not uncommon for a victim of a serious burn to suffer neuropsychological injury as a result of the trauma.
Burn injuries can range in degrees:
- First degree - Less serious burns that may include minor pain and redness of the skin
- Second degree - Burns causing blisters and superficial destruction of the dermis
- Third degree - Burns that extend into the deeper tissue, causing destruction of both the epidermis and the dermis
- Fourth degree - Deep tissue burns that completely destroy the skin and sometimes and sometimes damage muscle, fascia or bone
