A burn injury can be the most traumatic injury a person can suffer. The mental, physical and monetary costs of a recovering from a burn injury are staggering. Severe burn injuries may require years of hospitalization, doctor visits, physical therapy, and extensive counseling to overcome the mental trauma sustained from a bad burn injury. In the most serious cases, a burn injury can be fatal.

Burn trauma can be the result of a construction accident, boating accident, car accident or defective product. To prepare for your burn injury case, our lawyers will want to determine the source or cause of the fire or explosion as well as the type of burn.
Categories of Burn Injuries

  • First degree burns - 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 burns - One that penetrates the entire epidermal layer of skin and extends to the deeper layer of skin called the 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 burns - The most serious type of burn injury, 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. In the most severe cases, burns from fires and chemical burns can result in the wrongful death of a loved one.
