be affected by the careless or reckless actions of someone else; however,
we also realize that accidents can and do happen. When this is the case,
we are committed to fighting tirelessly for the full, fair compensation
you are owed.

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.
