Burn Injury Ratings
As a law firm that focuses on catastrophic injury cases, you can trust that we have the knowledge and experience required to handle all types of burn injury cases. We can talk to you about working on a case related to any degree of burn injury. Although, first-degree and second-degree burns are usually not serious enough to constitute a claim or lawsuit.
Burns can be categorized by degree:
- First: A mild burn that can be treated with first aid in the home. First-degree burns should be reviewed by a medical professional when the victim is an infant, elder, or someone with a compromised immune system.
- Second: A moderate burn that calls for a visit to urgent care due to the risk of infection if the burn doesn’t heal correctly. With the right medical care, though, second-degree burns usually have no lasting consequences.
- Third: A severe burn that requires emergency medical treatment. Third-degree burns can be fatal if untreated due to infection, necrosis, or damage to the victim’s airway. Most burn injury claims are filed after someone suffers a third-degree burn that causes permanent harm, such as debilitation of an affected body part and scarring.
- Fourth or higher: A catastrophic burn that is usually considered non-survivable due to the deep and widespread tissue damage suffered. If a burn injury victim passes away from their injuries, then a wrongful death might be filed by their surviving family members.
Sources of Burn Injuries
The source of your burn injury is important within the workings of your case. We have to prove that another party controlled, manufactured, or managed the source of your burn injury, which can put the liability on them for what happened. Using our investigative talents and the assistance of other professionals like product engineers, we can uncover evidence that shows you shouldn’t be to blame for your burn injury.
Burns can be caused by:
- Open flames
- Heated surfaces
- Caustic chemicals
- Electrical sources
- Extreme light sources
Many of the burn injury cases that we handle are related to defective appliances and products that superheat or combust into flames while being used normally. If this happened to you or a loved one, then you know you can count on us to bring a case against the manufacturer that sold you a dangerous product. The defendant could be on the hook for all of your damages, including medical costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, and so on.
