A major (second-degree) or full thickness (third-degree) burn injury is one of the most severe and traumatic injuries a person can suffer. The financial, mental, and physical costs of recovering from a burn injury are substantial.
Burns can change your life in moments. Both second- and third-degree burns often require long-term hospitalization, skin grafting, rehabilitation, and extensive psychological counseling to help overcome the mental trauma associated with a burn injury.
Statistics show that at least half of all burn injuries arise from preventable accidents. Although someone else’s negligence may have caused your accident, pinpointing who was at fault may require extensive investigation.
