Understanding the severity of your burn injury
The severity of a burn injury can vary significantly. The medical community classifies burns into four categories, depending on the intensity of skin penetration:
- First-degree burns. Physicians often refer to these injuries as superficial burns, because they solely affect the outer layers of skin. The burn area may appear red, but there is no blistering. First-degree burns generally heal without any long-term tissue damage.
- Second-degree burns. These injuries damage the outer skin layer. The burn site is typically red, swollen, and blistered. These burns may result in permanent scarring, but they rarely cause extensive, long-term damage or functional impairment.
- Third degree burns. These injuries affect the outer and second layers of the skin. They may even extend down into the innermost layer of the skin. Unlike first- and second-degree injuries, third-degree burn areas appear white or charred. Treatment can take months and additional complications are common.
- Fourth-degree burns. These injuries are the most severe types of burns, causing extensive damage to the bones and muscles. In the majority of cases, a 4th degree burn will lead to the death of the victim.
When developing a case for legal compensation, it is important to have attorneys who understand the severity of your burn injuries. This information directly impacts the amount of treatment you will need, along with the total cost of care.
