If you have been in an accident that has left you with burns, you may find yourself wondering what the next step is. At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., we understand that the road to recovery is a difficult one and will work to provide you with information that you can use to decide what to do in the aftermath of an accident.
First, you may wish to understand the extent of the damage done. For example, there are many different symptoms of moderate to severe burns that you may not even realize are being caused by the burns. This can include things like inhalation injuries, infection, and scarring, permanent or temporary muscle, tissue or nerve damage, internal bleeding, or even the loss of certain senses. Sight, hearing, taste, and smell can all be affected by a severe burn. If you have found yourself experiencing any of these things, it may be due to your burns.
It is also important for you to prepare for what may need to be done in order to recover from your burns. The road to recovery can be a long and somewhat costly one due to the number and delicate nature of the things that need to be repaired. Cosmetic procedures or skin grafts may be necessary. Likewise, different types of therapy could be needed, such as pain management, psychotherapy, and physical therapy.
All in all, it can be a long process, but knowing where to start can help. If you would like to continue reading about burns caused by negligent accidents and things that can be done to combat the costs, please visit our webpage on serious injury for further information.
