Burn Injuries Sustained in Georgia

Thousands of people are injured in fires or explosions every year. Many of these injuries will occur in the workplace, and they can happen because the fire safety standards of the workplace were not up to par with what they should be. For those who are affected by fire-related injuries, the injuries can be emotionally, physically, and financially catastrophic.

The Impact of Burn Injuries on Georgians

Burn Injuries lawyerIn a 2011 study, it was found that 15 percent of the nearly 4,000 burn victims admitted to a Georgia hospital sustained their burns while they were at work. Overall, hundreds of Georgians are hospitalized every year because of these kinds of accidents.

Nationwide, 486,000 people sustained burn injuries that required medical treatment in 2016, encompassing both major and minor injuries that were treated at different kinds of facilities such as a small clinic or a hospital burn center. As the numbers show, this problem is prevalent in Georgia and across the nation.

The Effects of a Burn Injury on a Person

If someone is the victim of a serious burn, it can be hard to return to their normal life after the accident. One of the major effects can be coping with the changes in their appearance after they suffer from a burn. If an injury is severe enough, it can be hard for someone to hide the effects of it. People may be upset about their differing appearance and physical ability, be nervous about how other people may react to scars, or they may feel like they need to be with someone when they go out in public rather than facing the world alone.

The changes that take place on a victim’s body can take up to two years to finalize into how they will look for the rest of their lives. Once scars begin to form, a person may suffer from stiffness as well as pain from the body’s healing process. As the scars start to mature, the skin will start to soften.

People may also experience issues related to their burns years after the healing process is complete. Inner body structures like cartilage can be damaged when someone is burned, possibly causing ears and noses to look permanently different. Skin grafts do not always work with follicles, so some people may be unable to regrow hair in places where they were burned. If a burn is severe enough, some people may have to have their fingers, toes, or entire limbs amputated. Even after the healing process is complete, a burn victim may have issues for years to come.
