Types of Burn Injuries
There are a wide range of issues that can result in burn injuries, from
household fires to workplace accidents to premises liability incidents.
Whether your burns were caused by
hazardous chemicals, scalding hot liquids, or a dangerous fire, our firm can guide you through
the process of pursuing your claim.
Burns are classified based off of severity, such as:
First degree: Being less serious, these burns result in minor pain and redness around
the burned area of the skin.
Second degree: These burns are more serious and may cause blisters or damage to the
top level of the dermis-nothing permanent.
Third degree: These burns extended into the deeper tissue and can damage the dermis
Fourth degree: As deep tissue burns, these burns completely destroy skin and may cause
damage to muscle, fascia, or bone in extreme cases.
Depending on the severity of your burn and related damages, you may have
a much more serious claim. That is why it is so important that you work
with a Pennsylvania burn injury attorney every step of the way. Our advocates
at Metzger Wickersham understand how to successfully file these types
of claims and can walk you through every step of the process.
