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 yearly, and at least 40,000 victims are admitted to the hospital for major burns. [1]

Some of the most common burn injuries result from:

Types of Burn Injuries & Their Treatments

Burns are excruciatingly painful, as is their treatment, and may require long-term care. Burn severity categorizes into the following:

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 could require grafts to repair the damaged skin.

Third Degree Burns

Burns that damage every skin layer and can affect internal organs and tissues. Third-degree burns are severe and require long-term medical care. Third-degree burns can result in permanent damage and even amputation.

Fourth Degree Burns

Burns that reach below subcutaneous skin to the bone and muscle. These major burns require long-term medical care, medications, surgeries, and skin grafts. It’s not uncommon for the victim to lose function in the burned areas.
