Burn injuries are amongst the most devastating and disfiguring injuries imaginable. Burn survivors have to deal with pain, suffering and intense physical discomfort, not to mention the psychological and emotional impact. In addition, survivors often incur burdensome medical expenses that can persist for years after the injury. This can result in great stress for both the burn victims as well as their loved ones.

Symptoms of a Burn InjuryIn 2015, there were more than 486,000 burn injuries in the United States that required medical treatment. More than 60 percent of the estimated U.S. acute hospitalizations related to burn injury were admitted to 128 burn centers.
The first step in dealing with a burn injury is to determine whether you have suffered one. Below are some common symptoms of a burn injury:
- Peeling of the skin
- Red skin
- White or charred skin
Despite what most of us think, pain is not an indicator of the severity of a burn. You can suffer a serious burn without having any common indication of pain. This is possible because a severe burn can char and through your nerves and pain receptors. In such cases, the symptoms may include shock, pale and clammy skin, weakness and decrease in alertness.
Common Causes of Burn InjuriesBurn injuries can result from a variety of different accidents, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Product liability and malfunction
- Electrical fires
- Structural fires
- Recreational fires
- Scalding water and steam accidents
Regardless of what caused your burn accident, you need to immediately consult with an attorney to protect your legal rights. Hiring an experienced burn accident attorney in Orange County to file a personal injury claim will not undo the devastating incident. However, it will help bring a sense of justice and the financial means to get you or your loved one the medical treatment you need to properly deal with the tragic situation.
