Causes and Types of Burn Injuries
Burns are common injuries. Most people suffer a burn injury at some point in their lives, like a minor sunburn or a stovetop burn. Others sustain severe burns that require hospitalization and intensive medical care.
When someone else’s negligence causes a victim serious burn injuries, the source of the injuries may be any number of preventable accidents, including, but not limited to:
A car accident;
A large truck accident;
A motorcycle accident;
A defective or dangerous product;
A workplace accident;
A premises liability accident; or
A recreational accident.
Burn injuries vary in severity. A first-degree burn affects only the top layer of the skin. A second-degree burn penetrates the surface of the skin to affect the underlying tissue. Neither is severe and will likely heal without any type of scar.
A third-degree burn, also known as a “full-thickness” burn, penetrates the skin layers to reach the fat tissue. Fourth-degree burns damage the bones, soft tissue, and muscle. Both third and fourth-degree burns require immediate emergency medical care and hospitalization.
The extent and severity of a victim’s burns determine their prognosis for recovery. The most severe burns may permanently scar and disfigure a victim and leave them without any sensation or mobility in the damaged area.
Compensation for Burn Injuries
Deep burns require lengthy hospital stays, painful treatments, reconstructive surgeries, cosmetic surgeries, and carry the risk of infection. Compensation for burn injuries should include the cost of current and future medical bills, lost wages, and take into consideration:
Loss of future income;
Mental and emotional trauma;
Pain and suffering;
Physical and vocational therapy;
Loss of enjoyment of life; and
