When it comes to car crashes, the endless list of possible injuries a car crash victim could face is terrifying. One of the most serious injuries from a motor vehicle crash involves burns to the skin. Call Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, if you are a burn victim in South Dakota—regardless of the cause—so our Sioux Falls personal injury attorneys can discuss your case with you. Our South Dakota burn injury attorneys are available to you. If you or someone you know ever finds himself in a burn injury situation, learn more about what steps you might take for treatment by reading on below.

Tips on Treating First Degree Skin Burns:

  • Cool the area. Hold the burned area under cool running water to help dull the pain. You can even use a cool, wet compress.
  • Bandage the skin. Cover it loosely with gauze, and change the gauze regularly.
  • Keep the burn area covered for a few days to protect the area. Take a pain reliever to help with the pain and an anti-inflammatory to help with the swelling.

Second degree burns that are less than three inches can be treated using the same steps indicated above. You should, however, seek immediate medical attention for any second degree burns larger than three inches and for third degree burns. Proper treatment is important to help reduce pain and scarring, as well as to prevent infections.
