Complications of a Burn Injury After a South Carolina Accident

Comments (0)

Burn injuries are some of the most traumatic types of injuries for an individual to suffer. If you have been involved in a South Carolina accident that has caused severe burn injuries, you may be able to recover damages for your expensive medical treatment.

A West Ashley personal injury lawyer can help you determine if your burn injuries were the result of someone else's negligence. If so, they can assist you with filing a personal injury claim to pursue recovery of damages. A West Ashley personal injury lawyer will take care of the paperwork and collection of evidence while you focus on healing and recovery.

Depending on the type of South Carolina accident you have been involved in, complications from a burn injury will vary. Not only is the burn itself a concern but other medical issues can also arise.

Some of the complications of a South Carolina burn injury may include:

  • loss of fluid;
  • respiratory difficulties;
  • imbalance in electrolytes;
  • lowered blood pressure;
  • swelling;
  • infections; and
  • shock.

These are only the physical complications. Oftentimes there are also emotional complications, especially if the burn injuries are severe. If there is disfigurement or permanent scarring this can emotionally traumatize an individual.

When you have suffered serious burn injuries in a South Carolina accident, a West Ashley personal injury lawyer can talk to you about your options for seeking compensation to address your medical bills.
