Burns can cause the skin to become dry and leathery. Severe burns can cause lesions, bleeding and other significant skin damage.
If a burn is severe enough, it can affect the nerves surrounding the burned tissues. Common signs of nerve damage are shooting pains and pain in areas not directly affected by burning.
If nerve damage is extensive or severe, it can cause permanent loss of feeling or paralysis. The most advanced burn injury cases usually involve some permanent loss of feeling the affected areas.
Burn injuries often result in infections during the wound care stage. Any open skin wound can develop an infection depending on the person. Proper medical care is required to avoid and treat infections caused by burns.
First degree burns only affect the outermost layer of skin. The skin will appear red and may be swollen. First degree burns are painful and may take months to heal. First degree burns can result in scarification. Depending on the extent of the burns, medical attention may be necessary. Contact a qualified Austin burn injury lawyer to learn more about your options.
Second-degree burns affect both the outer and underlying layer of skin. At first, these burns can cause leathery red skin but often also result in severe swelling, and blistering. These are also known as partial thickness burns. Left untreated, second degree burns can lead to complications like infections. Treatment for these types of burns often includes debridement or removal of dead skin tissue. Victims of second degree burns should seek immediate medical attention at a specialized burn unit. If the burns were caused by the negligence of another individual, victims should contact a qualified Austin burn injury lawyer.
Third-degree burns penetrate to the deepest layers of skin. These are called full-thickness burns and cause white, blackened, or burned skin. The victim may lose feeling or sensation in areas affected by third degree burns. They can also suffer from neurological damage. Third-degree burns must be treated immediately to prevent infection, deformity or other long term effects. If you have suffered from third degree burns as a result of someone's negligence, you should contact a qualified Austin burn injury lawyer.

The dogs were either burned alive or asphyxiated. Read more about it here.
