Complications for Severe Burn Victims in Highlands Ranch

The initial pain and suffering of a severe burn injury can be excruciating. Because of the significant loss of skin (which acts as a barrier for tissue, organs, etc.), the body’s immunocompromising response, and prolonged hospital stays, victims are more at risk for complications. If you were burned in a serious burn accident in Highlands Ranch Colorado, you understand the significant impacts of these injuries. If you are facing medical bills, missed income, etc. as a result of your burns, a lawyer can help.

Burns are relatively common, but serious second- and third-degree burns can be incredibly traumatic. Regardless of if your burns are thermal, chemical, electrical, burn injury attorneys serving Highlands Ranch will provide relief in the form of support and guidance. A lawyer from the expert team at Carabin Shaw will fight hard on your behalf to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve.

Read on to learn more about treatments and complications for severe burn victims, and call toll-free 800-862-1260 24/7 to schedule your free case review. English- and Spanish-speaking staff are available.

Initial Treatments Usually Include One or a Few of the Following
  • Skin grafts, lab-grown epidermis, or other skin-growth products
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Scar management (plastic surgery, dermabrasion, etc.)
  • Amputations (in severe cases)

While these treatments are common after serious burn injuries, they can be costly and require followup treatments and even additional procedures. A trusted Highlands Ranch burn accident lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for these expenses and any emotional damages as well.

Serious Complications of Serious Burn Injuries and Treatments

Patients who are more at risk for burn complications include children, those with compromised immune systems, and the elderly. All patients, however, are at risk for the following complications following a burn accident.

  • Pneumonia
  • More common in patients aged 40 and older, pneumonia may occur while being initially treated for a burn injury or after
  • Infections
  • These infections may be related to the wound itself but may also be the result of prolonged placement of devices, such as catheter-related infections
  • May also include respiratory infection after an inhalation injury
  • Sepsis (referred to as blood poisoning )
  • A chain reaction in the body caused by severe infection, usually bacterial
  • Causes inflammation in the body usually impacting organs and causing them to fail
  • Shock
  • Occurs when the blood flow in your body is insufficient
  • May also be caused by allergic reactions, infection, and damage to the nervous system
  • Acute respiratory distress syndrome / lung failure
  • When fluid collects in the lungs, cutting of oxygen to the organs

If you have suffered from any of the complications listed above, discuss your case with a personal injury attorney serving Colorado to examine your legal options. You have suffered enough. You deserve compensation for past, present, and future expenses you are facing due to the negligence of another.
