Help for the Burn Victim
Approximately 2.4 million burn injuries are reported every year in the United States. Burns can be one of the most painful injuries one can sustain. Individuals who suffer from such injuries are faced with significant healthcare challenges. There are a number of factors to consider when determining the severity of a burn injury, including the patient’s age, size and depth of burn, and the location of the burn. At Sheps Law Group, P.C. we understand that severe burns leave significant scaring, and deformities that are so disfiguring the victim may become isolated and withdrawn due to the staring of others. The damages one sustains will also impede their ability to work. However, along with the visible damage and disfigurement, burns attack and cause severe damage to internal organs. This damage can be life-threatening. In addition, severe burns can lead to infection, organ failure, lung problems, shock, amputations, and gangrene.
