Burn Injury 101: How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help Me?

Research shows that 450,000 Americans got treatment for burn injuries related to fires or other heat sources. 3,400 Americans have died from burn injuries, not including chemical burns. A severe burn can be a devastating injury, not only physically but mentally as well. It can affect the victim as well as their families.

These people with severe burns may be left with a loss of certain abilities, loss of limbs, scarring or even recurring infections. Burns can also cause emotional problems like depression, flashbacks and nightmares.

The loss of a friend or family member may add grief to the emotional impact of a burn. If you have been injured, or know someone who has, contact your personal injury lawyer and get the support you deserve; here’s how they can help.

Understanding Burn Injury Classifications

There are three classifications to burns, all ranging from minor to severe. The first classification is a first degree burn affects only the outer layer of skin. These heal within a short time and do not usually leave a scar.

This type of burn is considered minor, but still needs attention. A second degree burn causes damage to the outer layer of skin and the skin beneath. A three inch or less burn can heal on its own but a larger burn requires medical attention. Burns on the hands, feet, face or over joints should be treated as a medical emergency.

The last burn, which is the most severe, is a third degree burn. It damages all layers of the skin and can also cause permanent damage to fat, tissue, muscle and bone. These burns require immediate treatment in all cases.
