Burn Injuries

Were You Seriously Injured by Someone Else’s Actions?

An estimated 450,000 people go to the hospital for burn treatment every single year in the United States according to the American Burn Association. These injuries lead to an estimated 3,400 deaths every year, and nearly three out of four of these deaths are caused by house fires. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), burns and fires are the number three cause of death in homes across the country. Even in non-fatal cases, burns of all levels of severity can result in serious pain and permanent disfigurement.

How Serious Was Your Burn?

Burns, no matter what caused them, fall under the same four categorizations of severity. These classifications are:

  • Fourth Degree: This is the most severe type of burn, and affects every layer of skin, fat, muscle, tendons, nerves, all the way down to the bone. Any area burned this severely often appears black and often requires amputation.
  • Third Degree: This is the most common type of severe burn injury, and affects every layer of skin, fat, muscle and tendons, all the way to the nerves. The affected area often appears black, wet, waxy, and/or leathery, and are frequently caused by large fires.
  • Second Degree: This moderate classification doesn’t cause the same deep damage that fourth and third degree burns cause, but can still be incredibly painful and potentially disfiguring. This type of burn affects the first and second layers of skin, and often results in scarring.
  • First Degree: This is the least severe classification of a burn, and only affects the first layer of skin. With proper care, this type of injury can often heal within a week or so.
