Approximately 2.4 million burn injuries are reported in the United States each year. Burn injuries can be extremely painful and can cause victims to suffer a lifetime of serious healthcare challenges due to the fact that the skin’s protective barrier has been damaged. Many victims have suffered their injuries as a result of defective products or poorly maintained property. Some victims spend weeks or months in rehabilitation and have reconstructive surgery to rebuild the damages. Our attorneys have experience working with victims who have suffered burns as a result of someone else’s negligence. Please contact us for a free consultation.
Three Different Levels of Burn Injuries:
Burn injuries can happen almost anywhere and when you least expect it. There are three different levels of burn injuries:
First-degree burns: with this type of burn only the outer layer of the skin is damaged
Second-degree burns: includes the outer layer of the skin and the layer underneath is also affected
Third-degree burns: can cause damage to the tissue underneath as well as the deepest layer of skin
In some other resources additional degrees of burns are listed, for example:
Fourth-degree burns: go beyond the tissue and reaches the nerves, muscles and bones beneath it making it the most severe kind of burn.
