Recovering Damages from a Burn Injury
Burn injuries are among the most traumatic and painful.

Burn Injuries Are Classified Based on Degrees
The classifications are:
- First degree burns - Affects only the outer layer of skin or the epidermis. These kinds of burns are typified by sunburns.
- Second degree burns - Burns that get down to the second layer of skin or dermis and can cause blisters, pain and swelling.
- Third degree burns - Affects both layers of skin and are the most severe, usually causing permanent scarring, and often requiring skin grafts and other treatments.

Burn injuries can be the result of:

Faulty products can be the cause of burn injuries as well. During a car accident a person can become trapped in their car by a faulty seatbelt or airbag. These can be catastrophic injuries, resulting in great pain, physical damage as well as emotional scars. Burn injuries can leave a person disfigured and with damage to internal organs.
