Medical treatment for burn injuries

You can suffer a variety of injuries in a motor vehicle accident, with those to your skin among the most common. Burn injuries are among the most serious, as these are painful and have the potential to cause disfigurement.

If you're suffering from a burn injury, don't hesitate to call 911 to request an ambulance. Paramedics can treat your injuries at the scene, while also transporting you to a local hospital for additional care.

Upon examination, your medical team will consider all the following:

  • Water-based treatments: For example, ultrasound mist therapy can clean and stimulate the tissue around the burn. This can speed up the healing process.
  • Extra fluids: Burn injuries have the potential to cause dehydration, so it may be necessary to receive intravenous fluids.
  • Ointments and creams: There are a variety of topical products that can ease your pain and prevent wound healing.
  • Medication: You may require pain and anxiety medications to deal with the aftermath of a burn injury. Just the same, there are drugs that do help fight infection

Depending on the severity of your wounds, you may be transferred to a burn center as you recover. There may also come a point when your medical team suggests surgery to repair the most serious damage.

If you suffer burn injuries in a motor vehicle accident, don't wait to receive treatment. Even a burn that appears minor can cause serious health concerns.

When possible, learn more about the cause of the accident and take steps to hold the negligent driver responsible for your injuries and other damages. The compensation you receive will give you some peace of mind as you recover.
