A Few Important Things To Know About Cases Involving Serious Burns Or Electrocutions
- According to the National Institute of Health, burns and electrocutions are the result of heat, sunlight radiation, chemicals, or electricity damaging your skin and other tissues.
- The National Institute of Health reports that gases, hot liquids, steam, and flammable liquids combined with fire are the most common causes of burns.
- Third-degree burns are the most serious type of burn and damage the deepest layer of skin as well as underlying tissues, such as muscles. Third-degree burns sometimes require skin grafting, and treatment can be very expensive. Second-degree burns, which damage the top two layers of skin, can also be quite serious. First-degree burns are the least serious and damage only the outer layer of skin.
- A burn from electrocution may not appear as serious as a burn from fire, but the internal damage nevertheless can be very serious.
