Are you suffering from an electrocution injury?
While electrical injuries are less common than burn injuries, electrical injuries most often occur on the job, and many times it is the result of the negligence of others. Electrical injuries to children primarily happen in the home and can be the result of defective products or negligence. The range of electrical injury is from minimal injury to severe multi-organ involvement, and of course in some instances the result can be death. These injuries happen when a person becomes part of an electrical circuit or is affected by the thermal effects of a nearby electrical arc.

Burns can have lasting effects.
Burns are common in the United States. According to the American Burn Association, there are approximately 1 million burn injuries annually with an estimated 45,000 of those requiring hospitalization. It is estimated that one third of these injuries happen to children.
The Mayo Clinic describes three levels of burn severity:
- First-Degree Burn
The least serious burns are those in which only the outer layer of skin is burned, but not all the way through. The skin is usually red with swelling and pain sometimes is present.
- Second-Degree Burn
When the first layer of skin has been burned through and the second layer of skin (dermis) also is burned, the injury is called a second-degree burn. Blisters develop and the skin takes on an intensely reddened, splotchy appearance. Second-degree burns produce severe pain and swelling.
- Third-Degree Burn
The most serious burns involve all layers of the skin and cause permanent tissue damage. Fat, muscle, and even bone may be affected. Areas may be charred black or appear dry and white. Difficulty inhaling and exhaling, carbon monoxide poisoning, or other toxic effects may occur if smoke inhalation accompanies the burn.
