Types of Burn Injuries

Burns can result from a number of different types of accidents, including auto accidents, accidents with commercial trucks, workplace accidents, accidents on construction sites and at industrial plants, and more. While mild burns to the skin’s surface may heal fairly quickly and without complication, deeper burns affecting the tissues and muscles beneath the skin can be extremely painful, may require surgery, and can take a long time to heal.

A burn injury can fall into the following categories:

  • Thermal burns from contact with flames or superheated items
  • Scalds from superheated water or steam
  • Chemical burns from contact with corrosive substances
  • Inhalation burns from breathing in hot steam or chemical fumes
  • Electrical burns from exposure to electricity

Sometimes, burns happen through no fault of the victim. For example, if a person suffers a chemical burn from a household product that does not contain any warnings of the hazard, the manufacturer of the product may be to blame. A car accident victim who suffers burns in their vehicle after a collision may take action against the person who caused their accident.

Because burn injuries can have such far-reaching consequences, including expensive medical bills, rehabilitative care, scarring and disfigurement, pain, and post-traumatic consequences, it is important for victims to involve a qualified attorney who knows how to maximize the value of their case.

Burn "Degrees"

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 and epidermis.
  • 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.
