What Causes Burn Injuries?

Burn accident injuries can happen just about anywhere. Some of the most common ways these types of injuries occur include:

Burn accident injuries can vary widely in severity. The three general categories are:

  • First-Degree: The mildest of all burn injuries, first-degree burns are typically characterized by some redness, pain, and swelling. Usually, the effects of the injury go away in a relatively short period of time.
  • Second-Degree: With this type of injury, the burn has penetrated into the second layer of the skin, known as the dermis. This is characterized by more serious symptoms, such as severe redness, pain and swelling, and blisters.
  • Third-Degree: The most severe type of burn injury, a third-degree burn penetrates into the third layer of the skin, known as the subcutaneous. This is characterized by skin that appears white, blackened, charred, or with a leather-like texture. Numbness is another common symptom. Third-degree burns have the potential to cause permanent nerve damage and other severe health conditions.

Burn accident injuries are sometimes caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party. When severe and life-altering health conditions result, you need to work with a skilled attorney who is committed to holding those responsible for your condition fully accountable.
