Did you know that there are more than 450,000 reported burn injuries which
hospital treatment and more than 3,400 fire and burn injury deaths in
2012? Burn injuries can result from a number of different situations,
some fires start from a natural source, while others are started by actions
of man. However, the majority of burn injuries are preventable if it were
not for negligence or misconduct. Not only do fires cause destruction
to land, property and the natural habitat, but they can also severely
damage the human body.
Extreme heat can damage the layers of skin and the smoke could cause serious
respiratory problems. What many burn injury victims are not aware of,
is that you may be eligible for compensation if you are able to prove
that the incident was caused by someone else's negligence or carelessness.

Types of Burn Injuries
Some burn injuries are not caused by fire- there are cases where severe
burns are sustained from a chemical or scalding liquid. The most common
types of burn injuries that we have seen at the firm include:
- Residential fires
- Vehicle crash fire
- Smoke inhalation
- Scalding liquid
- Hot objects
- Chemical fire
Burn injuries are broken down into varying degrees depending on the severity
of the skin damage. The amount of compensation that burn injuries victims
are awarded may depend the degree of burn damage that they have sustained.
With third degree burns being the worst, it is important to know that
all burn injuries are slow to heal and are quite expensive to treat. Our
burn injury lawyers will pair you up with the best burn treatment facilities
so that you receive the optimal care that you need and deserve.
How severe was your burn injury? First, second or third degree?
First degree burns only damage the outer layer of skin and they can leave
the area feeling dry, red and sensitive to touch. A good example of a
first degree burn would be a sunburn, which doesn't leave behind blisters.
Second degree burns, also referred to as partial thickness burns, are
a tad more severe because they damage part of the lower dermis layer of
skin. These types of burns blister and swill and are extremely painful.
Lastly, third degree burns, or full thickness burns, can cause permanent
nerve damage because the outer epidermis and lower dermis layer of skin
is destroyed. Third degree burns could leave the skin discolored with
a leathery texture.
