Minnesota Second Degree Burn Injury Attorney

A partial thickness burn or second degree burn is typically the most painful type of burn and can be accompanied by swelling.  Penetrating the epidermis (and sometimes reaching the dermis), a second degree burn shows redness, blistering and intense pain because of nerve damage.  Second degree burns can also damage sweat glands and hair follicles.

Medical attention is required to treat second degree burns and recovery time is usually 10-21 days.  Changes in skin color and pigmentation can also be present in second degree burns.  if a second degree burn appears white or ivory in color, debridement (scrubbing) will be necessary to avoid infection. A skin grafting treatment will be used if the second degree burn requires debridement.

Burned skin can present many lingering issues:

  • Dryness in the skin will be present because oil glands were damaged
  • Sweating can be an issue in some people
  • Eczema can be an issue because the skin is thinner and breaks down more easily
  • Some burn victims experience wrinkling at an earlier age
  • If a skin graft was used, a permanent mesh pattern may appear in the burned area in some burn victims.

Burn victims suffer psychological and emotional issues, in addition to their physical injuries.  Burn victims can also be prone to nightmares, cold sweats, low self-esteem and depression because they are having difficulties adjusting to their permanently changed life.
