Personal Injury Lawyers : San Antonio Construction Site Burn Injury Cases
A major burn injury can be one of the most devastating injuries a person can sustain. Physical and emotional scarring continues to plague burn victims long after they sustain their burn. Every year approximately 2.4 million people suffer from burn injuries in the United States. Burns are separated into three categories based on the depth and extent of the burn.A first-degree burn injury results in skin that is red and sensitive. First-degree burns are cause injury to the outermost layer of skin known as the epidermis.A second-degree burn injury results damage to both the outer layer and the underlying layer of the skin. Second-degree burns often develop blisters and the skin takes on a splotchy red appearance.A third-degree burn is the damaging type of burn, and can result in significant damages to all layers of skin, fat and bone. While these burns are the most severe, they tend to be less painful then first and second-degree burns because the nerves in the skin have been burned. A person that suffers from a third degree burn will often suffer from additional medical problems such as smoke inhalation, carbon monoxide poisoning, shock, organ failure and death.Negligence on the construction site can lead to serious burn injuries.Skin grafts, scars, and sometimes a construction worker’s death can all be attributed to negligence of the employer or other employees.
Burn injuries that occur on construction sites are often caused by someone’s negligent act or by a piece of defective equipment. Construction site burns can come from a variety of sources and do not necessarily require a person to be burned by an open flame. An employee can also sustain burn injuries from steam, chemicals, electric shocks, extremely cold liquids and gases, explosions and direct contact with hot surfaces.
Following a severe burn, some patients must undergo skin grafts, skin debridement and rehabilitation that may span several years. Some burn victims are left with scars that cover a large portion of their bodies, while other burn victims die before their wounds can heal.
