Burns Injuries Can Be Costly - Get Compensated
Victims of catastrophic burns face extensive—and costly—medical
treatment. They may require hospitalization, surgery, skin grafting, pain
medications, and more. In many cases, burns will leave lasting scars and
may even be partially or fully disfiguring. The emotional distress and
trauma can be severe.
Medical treatments add up fast, combined with the fact that burn victims
may be unable to work for some time, a serious injury of this nature can
leave you financially devastated. If your burn injury was caused by someone's
negligence or a defective product, you shouldn't have to bear that burden.
Our Sacramento brain injury attorney can fight to recover the compensation
you deserve for the following types of damages, and more:
- Missed time at work/lost wages.
- Medical expenses such as surgery, skin grafts, physical therapy, etc.
- Loss of future earning potential for those unable to return to work.
- Loss of quality and enjoyment of life.
- Loss of companionship with family/spouse.
- Other non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

Types of Burn Injuries
Medically speaking, burns are categorized according to severity. While
certain burns are generally considered “more serious” than
others, all burn injuries can affect numerous aspects of a person’s life.
The different types of burns are as follows:
First-Degree Burns: These are the mildest types of burns, though they can still be very painful.
First-degree burns typically result in redness and pain at the burn site.
Only the top layer of skin (the epidermis) is affected.
Second-Degree Burns: These burns affect both the upper layer and lower layer of skin (the epidermis
and dermis, respectively). Victims of second-degree burns experience pain,
reddening of the skin, blistering, and swelling.
Third-Degree Burns: These burns affect both the epidermis and dermis, as well as lower layers
of tissue and bone. Third-degree burns are the most severe (and often
fatal) type of burn injury, resulting in charred, blackened, or whitened
skin, extreme pain, and numbness.
Additionally, burn injuries are categorized by how they occur. Thermal
burns are those caused by direct contact with fire/flames, heated materials
(metal), boiling liquid, or steam. Individuals may also suffer electrical
burns, chemical burns, friction burns, or radiation.
