Burns, Scarring and Disfigurement Attorney New Orleans

Burn, scarring, disfigurement attorney in New Orleans

New Orleans Attorney for Burns, Scarring & Disfigurement Injuries

Burn injuries can be debilitating, resulting in the need for major medical care. Ranging from simple bandages to several surgeries, a burn injury can vary in severity. When you are a victim of a burn injury, you need to be prepared. A burn injury is not only an emotional experience but also very painful physically.

Unfortunately, burn injuries are common and can easily lead to the need for extensive medical assistance. A burn injury can occur due to heat, electrocution, exposure to chemicals or even spending time in the sun. If you or someone you love recently suffered a burn injury, take time to speak to our personal injury attorneys. At Cueria Law Firm, we have experience with burn injury cases and are ready to fight for you, building a case to see monetary compensation.

Severe burns can lead to scarring of the body as well as disfigurement. Based on the particulars of your case, you may be entitled to compensation. The type of treatment you require will be based on your burn injury. Third and fourth-degree burns lead to more severe injuries, which can include the need for major surgeries to recover. Such surgeries are expensive and will require ongoing treatment and medication to be successful.

Treatment for Severe Burn Injuries

A common treatment option for a severe burn injury is a skin graft. As a surgical procedure, a skin graft will see the skin removed from a healthy part of the body and transplanted to the damaged area. This can be extremely painful and a time-consuming process that requires multiple surgeries. Several types of skin graft options are available today, including:

  • Pinch grafts
  • Pedicle grafts
  • Split-thickness grafts
  • Full-thickness grafts

With implantation surgery, if the graft is able to survive after 72 hours, then the body will be accepting of the skin. The area will need to be monitored for infection and blood supplied for the graft to heal. The full healing process can take as long as six months to complete. If you have multiple areas in need of skin grafts, the process can take years to complete.

In extreme cases, amputation may be necessary to remove areas of the body where extreme burns have taken place. In some instances, fourth-degree burns can be down to the bone and there is no option for treatment, with amputation needed.

Being affected by a burn injury can result in a major change in your lifestyle. You may need medical assistance on a regular basis as well as undergo several surgeries where aftercare will also be needed. Treatments can be costly, and your burn injury may provide you with an outlet for compensation from the negligent party who caused your injury. If you or someone you love has been affected by a burn injury due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, contact our attorneys today.
