Burn Injuries

Helping Catastrophic Burn Injury Victims get the compensation they deserve.

Burn injuries are one of the leading causes of unintentional death and injury in the United States. According to the American Burn Association, 486,000 people were estimated to receive medical treatments for burns in the United States in one year.

The most common burn injuries

There are many different types of burn injuries that you can experience, including:

Chemical Burns: A burn that occurs when your living tissue is exposed to a destructive chemical or fumes.

Electrical Burns: A burn that occurs during contact with electricity.

Flash Burns: A burn that is caused by sudden intense heat.

Thermal Burns: A burn that happens when you contact a heated object, i.e., flames, metals, steam, and hot liquids.

The Four Levels of Burn Injuries

There are four levels of burn injuries, and their severity depends on the length of time you were exposed to the source of the damage. Therefore, it’s critical to your recovery and lawsuit to quickly identify the burn level you are experiencing to ensure proper treatment.

First-Degree Burns

This type of burn requires little amount of treatment because it causes the least amount of damage to your skin. However, more superficial burns can cause minor swelling, redness, and pain.

Second-Degree Burns

This type of burn is a bit more severe because it can cause damage to the outer layer of your skin. If you’ve experienced second-degree burns, you may see signs that include blisters and red skin sores.

Third- & Fourth-Degree Burns

These types of burns are the most severe type of burns you can experience. That’s because the burn extends through multiple layers of your skin and can even reach your muscles and bones and lead to nerve damage.
