Nature of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries are most painful yet mostly non-fatal. They affect major functions of the body like nerve endings, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones and the respiratory system. When the skin which is the largest organ of the body is injured, other various functions like manual dexterity, fluid balance, thermal regulation and physical appearance are affected due to scarring. Burn injuries can be of varied degrees. Injuries to the outer layer of the skin are considered as first degree burns while second degree burns penetrate past the outer layer to the second layer. Third degree burns are most severe and more painful as they not only destroy the two layers of the skin but also the nerve endings. These are some of the factors that Mr. Amos will take into account when handling your case.
