Fighting for Fair Compensation For South Carolina Burn Injury Victims
Whether the result of a fire, exposure to heat such as steam or boiling water, or the result of exposure to chemicals or radiation, the life altering effects of a burn injury on children and adults alike can be devastating, result in permanent scarring, and even be deadly.
By most accounts, the excruciating pain and psychological trauma of disfigurement that a third-degree burn victim suffers is unimaginable. In addition to the initial trauma suffered, serious burn injuries require ongoing lifetime care, rehabilitation, and many times require additional surgery.

Understanding the Seriousness of a Burn Injury
First Degree Burns: First degree burns are treated as a minor burn unless they are extensive. First degree burns typically only affect the outer layer of skin. First degree burns typically look like a sunburn and are limited to redness and minor pain.
Second Degree Burns: The degree of pain associated with a second degree burn depends upon the amount of nerve damage. Second degree burns affect the second layer of skin and may result in blistering.
Third Degree Burns: The most serious burn injuries. Third degree burn injury will cause permanent tissue damages as well as major damage and deformity to all layers of the skin. Third degree burns usually require skin grafts or plastic surgery. Injured third degree burn victims are typically flown immediately to a local burn center.
Fortunately, South Carolina is within reach of some of the United States most respected burn centers.
