Louisiana Chemical Burn Lawsuit
Burn injuries are classified according to severity, ranging from first to fourth degree burns. Due to the nature of the chemicals and other products involved, industrial accidents often lead to third and fourth degree burns:
- Third degree burns involve severe damage to the outer layer of skin and at least some amount of damage to the deeper-most layers of skin, often necessitating skin grafting.
- Fourth degree burns involve severe damage to each layer of the skin, as well as the muscle, tendon and ligaments. When not fatal, fourth degree burns require skin grafting.
In addition to the painful treatment and recovery that includes scrubbing the dead skin to allow for skin grafting, third and fourth degree burns can lead to permanent or temporary disfigurement, scarring, nerve damage and hair loss.
