Offshore Burn Injury Lawyer
Serious offshore burn injuries are an all too common occurrence for offshore workers. Overexposure to heat, steam, electricity, chemicals or even the sun can lead to painful, even life-threatening first, second, third or fourth degree burns.
- First Degree – These burns, which are red and dry in appearance, affect only the outermost layer of skin, known as the epidermis.
- Second Degree – These burns, which appear red and moist with clear blisters, extend through the epidermis into the dermis.
- Third Degree – These burns, which appear red and white with bloody blisters, extend through the entire dermis and are known as full thickness burns.
- Fourth Degree – These burns, which appear black, extend through the subcutaneous tissue and into muscle and even bone.
