The Colorado Burn Accident Lawyers

According to the American Burn Association, burn injuries are common causes of morbidity and mortality. In the U.S. alone, more than 480,000 people receive emergency room care for burns each year, and at least 40,000 of these burn victims were admitted to the hospital for major burns.[1]

Some of the most common burn injuries are suffered as a result of:

Types of Burn Injuries & Their Treatments

Burns are excruciatingly painful and the treatment for major burns are also painful and may require long-term care. Burn severity is broken down as:

First Degree Burns

Burns that damage only the top layer of skin, and which usually heal with little medical care.

Second Degree Burns

Burns that damage the top few layers of skin. Second degree burns are painful and most require at least over the counter treatment and take several weeks to heal. Second degree deep burns can require skin grafts to repair the damaged skin.

Third Degree Burns

Burns that damage all the layers of skin and can even affect internal organs and tissues. Third degree burns are the most severe and will require long-term medical care. Third degree burns can result in permanent damage and even amputation.

Fourth Degree Burns

Burns reach below subcutaneous skin to reach the bone and muscle. These major burns require long-term medical care as well as medications, and even surgeries and skin grafts, though it is not unusual for the victim to lose function of the burned areas.
