Who You Can Sue

If you have been told that you suffered a "mild" brain injury in the car accident, do not be misled. When the term "mild" is used it is referring to the rating on the Glasgow Coma Scale. This scale measures the initial assault on the brain and basically tells you how long you were out. It has nothing to do with the severity of the long-term damage to your brain. Even a "mild" brain injury can have devastating long-term consequences.

Varying Degrees of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are also classified by their depth. The treatment for a serious burn injury can take years, cost thousands of dollars and require extensive, multiple surgeries. The location of your burn is also prone to infection and must be carefully taken care of. In severe cases, a burn injury can damage your nerves and affect other body parts and bodily functions.

The degrees of burns are:
First-degree burns: These burns affect the outer layer of your skin, called your epidermis. Symptoms include redness, pain and swelling. First-degree burns usually heal in a week, the most common being mild sunburn.

Second-degree burns: With this burn, the first layer of your skin has been burned through to your second layer, called your dermis. Symptoms include blisters, severe redness, and severe pain and swelling.

Third-degree burns: These severe burns destroy your first and second layer of skin, burning down to your third layer called your subcutaneous. Symptoms include skin that appears white, black or leathery. With third-degree burns, your skin’s nerve endings may have been destroyed, so you may not feel pain. But the skin surrounding your burn can be incredibly painful. These severe burns and the pain associated with them can cause a rapid pulse and difficulties breathing.
