One way to reduce your chances of suffering burn injuries while riding a motorcycle is by wearing protective gear at all times. It’s essential to cover as much skin as possible with materials such as leather or synthetics.
Leather and synthetic outerwear is specifically constructed not to tear as easily upon impact in motorcycle accidents.
Despite taking precautions, however, you could still become the victim of a negligent driver who will claim, “I didn’t see you.” When this happens, you should have good legal counsel by your side. A Kentucky personal injury law firm may be able to help you recover damages for your medical expenses, property damage and other losses.
Treatment for Burn Injuries after Motorcycle Accidents
Treatment for burn injuries will depend on the severity of the burn. Consider third-degree burns, for example. Treatment may involve any of the following:
- IV fluids to prevent dehydration from loss of skin;
- antibiotics and pain medication;
- protective dressings;
- skin grafting; and
These kinds of burn injuries may lead to significant time in an intensive care unit as well as a lot of medical leave from work. At this vulnerable time, you should be able to focus on your recovery, not a lot of legalese. Your attorney can help by gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses and preparing legal documents to help you seek the fair compensation you deserve.
