UNION COUNTY NJ BURN AND SCAR INJURY ATTORNEY
Statistically, burn injuries sustained in Union County and throughout New Jersey are not always caused by fire. Heat, cold, electricity, chemicals, friction, or radiation can all be causes of a burn injury. However, most burns are due to heat from hot liquids, solids, or fire. Vehicle crash fires, contact with electricity, scalding liquids, or hot objects such as home radiators can also cause severe burn injuries.
Burn injuries are divided into four categories: First Degree Burns, Second Degree Burns, Third Degree Burns and Fourth Degree Burns.
First Degree Burns
First Degree burns are the least severe. They seldom leave scars. A victim can sustain a first degree burn though contact with hot water or flame, a minor sunburn, or hot metal. First degree burns are painful but do not cause nerve damage. Hospitalization is rare.
Second Degree Burns
A Second Degree is one in which the burn infiltrates the second layer of skin. Scars are possible. Hospitalization is sometimes necessary to treat a second-degree burn. In New Jersey, many victims are treated at The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas in Livingston.
Third Degree Burns
Three Degree burns are very severe. The burn travels through all three layers of skin. It is possible for a burn victim to survive a third-degree burn. Hospitalization is immediately necessary.
Fourth Degree Burns
Fourth Degree Burns are the most severe. It is very difficult to survive a fourth-degree burn. Immediate hospitalization is necessary.
Burn Injury Treatment
Severely injured victims require immediate hospitalization. Afterwards, specialized care is necessary, which may include one or more skin grafts. Depending on the severity of the injury and the impact on the victim, long-term physical and psychological treatment may be required.
