Burn Injuries

Burns are identified as damage to the skin or body part caused by extreme heat, flame, or chemical. Most commonly, burns are acquired by one of the following:

  • Electrical or industrial accidents
  • Gas spills
  • Fires
  • Lighters, matches, or candles

Burns can also vary in severity. Burns are identified by first-degree, second-degree, third-degree, and fourth-degree. Burns by degree are defined as the following:

  • First-degree burns are the least severe type of burn. They typically only affect the outer layer and don’t include blisters
  • Second-degree burns likely affect two layers of skin, are red, swollen, and painful
  • Third-degree burns destroy the top two layers of skin. They may turn the skin black, brown, yellow, and damage nerve endings

When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, financial restitution may be available to recover loss of earnings, loss of pension, medical bills, mental and physical pain and suffering.
