Burn injuries are especially painful and often require extensive medical treatment. A burn injury patient may have to endure multiple surgeries, skin grafts, physical therapy, and other medical treatment. Burn injuries suffered in fires are often accompanied by smoke inhalation injuries, which are also damaging and difficult to treat.

Burn Injury Lawyers
Burn injuries can occur in a wide range of settings, from explosions on construction sites, to chemical leaks in factories, to scalding water in bathtubs and showers.
Burn injuries are classified into three different categories, depending upon the severity of the burn:
- First-degree burns: Burns affecting the outer layer of the skin. First-degree burns typically cause the skin to be red and very sensitive to touch.
- Second-degree burns: Painful burns affecting the outer layer of the skin as well as the underlying skin (the dermis). Second-degree burns are often characterized by swelling and blisters.
- Third-degree burns: Third-degree burns affect all three layers of skin and often result in permanent scarring and disfigurement. Third-degree burns are very difficult to treat and often leave the burn victim with a lifetime of complications.
In handling burn injury claims, we thoroughly review the victim’s medical condition, calling upon burn injury experts when necessary, to determine the full impact of the injury. It is important to consider all the ways in which this injury will affect your life, from your ability to work to your physical appearance.
