Have you experienced a burn accident injury?

Burn injuries can happen at work, in a car accident or at someone’s home. They can be caused by heat, radiation, radioactivity, electricity or chemicals, and result in the cells on an individual’s skin being damaged or destroyed.

While most burns are minor and occur within the household, others, such as those caused by an accident, can be devastating. Burns can also leave temporary or even permanent scars on the skin that may require medical treatment or surgery.

Avrek Law Firm has successfully represented burn injury victims for decades. If you have been injured in an accident that has resulted in serious burns, it is important to speak with a burn accident attorney to ensure you are compensated for your burn injuries.

Types of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can range from minor to severe, and can sometimes be life-threatening. Any part of the body can be harmed by hot chemicals or fire at the scene of an accident, and your skin could be permanently damaged or disfigured. You should be examined by a medical professional immediately after you suffer this type of injury to determine the severity of the burn.

The severity of a burns is determined by the size and depth of the burn area, and are categorized:

  • First-Degree Burns cause damage to the skin’s outer layer, and present redness and pain. These types of burns can usually heal on their own.
  • Second-Degree Burns cause damage to the epidermis and dermis, which includes swelling, blisters and pain. The skin may also display blotches of red and white, and may appear moist.
  • Third-Degree Burns cause severe burns that reach the innermost layer of the skin. The skin may appear charred or blackened.
  • Fourth-Degree Burns cause damage all the skin’s layers, and may also be so severe that the muscle and bone are also damaged.

Any level of burn injury can cause serious physical and emotional damage, and can also have a major financial impact after an accident. If the negligence of someone else has caused your burn injury, you may be able to receive compensation for related medical bills, lost wages and any other expenses – a burn accident lawyer can help you sort the details of your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

Burn injuries are caused by fire or scalding liquids. Burn injuries damage some (or all) of the cells in a victim’s skin. Most burn injuries occur at home and usually heal without extensive medical attention, but some burns can cause serious scarring and damage to the body.

There are four types of burn injuries: first-, second-, third- and fourth-degree burns.

First-degree burn injuries (and some second-degree burns) are considered minor injuries. A first-degree burn may turn the victim’s skin red. Only the first layer of skin is damaged and blisters will not form. First-degree burns, such as sunburn, can be painful.

Second-degree burns damage the first and second layer or skin. They are identifiable by redness, swelling and blisters, but do not usually involve nerve damage.

Third-degree burns are severe and damage all layers of the skin. After a third-degree burn occurs, the victim’s skin may appear white and leathery.

Fourth-degree burns are the same as third-degree burns, but may involve bone and muscle damage, too. Third- and fourth-degree burns may not be painful because the victim’s nerves may be damaged.

If you suffer from a burn of any degree, and it was due to someone else’s negligence, it is in your best interest to speak with an attorney. States have strict safety codes and regulations, and failure to meet these regulations could result in negligence. An experienced attorney can determine the next steps you should take in a burn injury claim.
