Burn Injury Accidents

A burn injury can be the most traumatic injury a person can suffer. The mental, physical injuries and monetary costs of recovering from a burn injury is staggering. Burn injuries can sometimes require years of hospitalization, doctors visits, physical therapy, and extensive counseling to overcome the mental trauma sustained from a bad burn injury.

First Degree Burn Injury
First degree burns usually affect the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). These burns tend to be moist and red in color. A classic example of a first degree burn would be a mild sunburn.

Second Degree Burn Injury
One that penetrates the entire epidermal layer of skin and extends to the deeper layer of skin (dermis). Characterized as moist pinkish in color with blistering, these types of burns are usually not that serious, and heal within two weeks.

Third Degree Burn Injury
The most serious, third degree burns occur when all layers of the skin are burned and the underlying tissue is damaged. These burns are characterized by a white or black dry wound, and permanent scarring is inevitable.

Burn injuries can be the direct result of a personal injury, and you can hold another person or company liable for the suffering endured. The source or cause of the fire or burn accident will need to be determined for a burn injury case. It is important to know what to do to protect the legal rights of yourself and your loved ones.
