How to Treat Your Post-Accident Burn Pain

New Orleans personal injury lawyer

An unfortunate part of burn injury recovery is discomfort and pain. Many people who have suffered a burn claim the ongoing pain lasts a long time after they are discharged from the hospital. Burns can occur in a number of ways; and different types of burns present different levels of pain. If you suffer a burn due to the fault or neglect of another person, you need to contact a personal injury attorney in New Orleans as soon as possible. They can help evaluate your situation to determine if you can receive monetary compensation.

Types of Burns

There are three basic types of burns:

  • First-degree burns: These are mild compared to other types. Typically this burn results in reddening of the outer layer of skin and pain.
  • Second-degree burns: Affects the epidermis, as well as the dermis. This type of burn causes pain, blistering, swelling, and redness.
  • Third-degree burns: Go through the dermis and affect the deeper tissue. They typically result in charred, blackened or white skin that may feel numb.

Causes of a Burn Related Personal Injury in New Orleans

Several different things can cause burns. Some of the most common culprits include:

  • Chemicals
  • Electricity
  • The sun
  • Heated items
  • Friction
  • Radiation
  • Wet heat – hot liquids or steam
  • Dry heat – fire

The most common type of burn resulting in a personal injury in New Orleans is a thermal burn. These occur when steam, scalding liquids, hot metals or flames come in contact with a person’s skin.

Types of Treatments for Burns

The treatment method is dependent on the type of burn that occurs. Most first-degree burns are treated with topical products, like an antibiotic ointment, and pain medication, such as Tylenol. Second-degree burns are also treated with antibiotic creams prescribed by a doctor.

If third-degree burns occur, treatment may include skin grafting or the use of synthetic skin. Also, if the burns cover a larger amount of the body, more intensive treatments are often required, such as IV antibiotics.

Regardless of the type of burn you suffer, if it was someone else’s fault, you don’t have to pay for the damages and medical treatment alone. A personal injury attorney in New Orleans can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Tips for Managing Burn Pain

Unfortunately, burn pain is often prolonged and intense. It is more difficult to control than other types of pain due to its unique characteristics, various components and changing patterns. Also, when burns are treated, more pain can occur because the wounds have to be cleaned and protected. If the burn is severe, aggressive action is often needed to prevent more serious consequences from occurring.

If you, or someone you love, has suffered any type of burn injury, due to the fault or negligence of another person or entity, contact a New Orleans personal injury lawyer. The costs associated with these injuries can accumulate quickly and last for many years down the road. If you don’t seek compensation from the responsible party, you may have to pay for all of this out of pocket.
