Severe burns are extremely painful and can be debilitating, affecting nerves and muscle tissue as well as one’s appearance, which can have lasting psychological consequences. At Cullan & Cullan, we are dedicated to helping those who have suffered burn injuries due to no fault of their own. We represent children and adults across Kansas and Missouri who have been burned by defective or dangerous products or in motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, and more.

As medical doctors and trial attorneys, we know what impact a burn injury will have on a victim now and into the future.

Types & Causes of Burn Injuries

There are several different types of burns, categorized by severity. First-degree burns are the mildest type of burn and typically result in only light epidermal damage. Usually, skin turns red and there is a slight pain. Second-degree burns are those that cause damage to both the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and the lower layer (dermis). Second-degree burns usually result in swelling and blistering, as well as redness at the site and pain. Third-degree burns are the most severe type of burn. These burns involve extensive damage to both the outer and lower layer of skin, as well as damage to the underlying tissue and bone. Third-degree burns often result in white or blackened skin, severe pain, and bodily harm.

Burn injuries may have various causes, including:

Treatment for Burns

Burns often leave lasting damage. Victims may suffer from severe scarring, disfigurement, internal injuries, and may even experience a higher risk for certain types of cancer. Burn treatment depends on the type of burn suffered, as well as the extent and severity of the injuries. At-home treatment is typically sufficient for first-degree burns, whereas second- and third-degree burns will require extensive medical care. Victims may even require hospitalization for severe burns and, in extreme cases, may need to undergo skin grafting or plastic surgery. In some cases, an individual may need debridement, a process that involves removing damaged tissue and/or foreign objects that are in or near the wound. Other times, victims may require Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to halt tissue destruction and promote healing.
