What is a Second-Degree Burn?

Dallas Burn Injury Attorney

Burn injuries are one of the most painful and traumatic injuries that can be inflicted upon an innocent victim. Due to their ability to scar and leave long-lasting ramifications, they can be the most emotionally difficult to deal with and should not be treated lightly. Burns are broken up into different degrees of severity and carry with them different treatments. A second-degree burn usually affects the outer layer of skin, also known as the epidermis, along with the second layer of skin, called the dermis. This type of burn is red and blistered. Many people believe that the burn is wet as the area has lost a lot of fluid. Speak with a Dallas personal injury lawyer soon after you sustain a burn.

This is one of the most painful types of burns, and can cause the victim's pulse to rise erratically. They can also suffer from very low blood pressure, which can result in them going into shock. This would result in fainting, physical weakness, vomiting and a blue tint to places such as the nails and mouth. This type of burn, especially if in a large area of the body, requires hospital treatment to ensure that you do not suffer from complications such as infection.
