Burn injuries are some of the most difficult injuries for both the individual and the family. Burns that are first and second degree are less problematic than the more severe third-degree burns. However, they are still painful and can result in scarring, increased risk of infection, and other types of complications.
Understanding the Long-Term Impact of Third-Degree Burns
Third-degree burns are often seen in vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, explosions, processing facility accidents, faulty wiring, and house and workplace fires. These types of burns damage the skin and the underlying tissue. These burns typically result in permanent disfigurement, the need for skin grafts, ongoing physical therapy, and a loss of mobility in the impacted area of the body.
Many people who experience this type of significant and severe burning require years of medical support, surgeries, and therapy. They may have lifelong pain and disabilities that prevent them from doing many of the things they enjoy. Serious scarring and disfigurement can also lead to an increased risk of depression and emotional distress.
