Each year in the U.S., approximately over 2 million burn injuries are reported.  Almost 1 million of these victims will suffer significant or permanent disabilities because of their burn injury. People with burn injuries often face a long and painful struggle that requires extensive rehabilitation and treatment.

First-degree burns involve the first layer of skin while second degree burns included the first and second layers of skin. The most serious burns are third-degree burns where all layers of skin and underlying tissue is damaged.




 

 

 

Common Causes of Burn Include:

  • Chemicals at work and in the home
  • Defective appliances
  • Defective smoke detectors.
  • Scalding from spilled food and liquids.
  • Inhalation of dangerous fumes.

Burn injuries can dramatically affect your both your outward appearance as well as your body's internal functioning. They frequently result in permanent scars that can be mentally and psychologically difficult to cope with.

Burn victims injured by the negligence of another person or entity have legal rights to file a claim against the negligent party to recover damages. Since burns are among the most expensive catastrophic injuries to treat, settlements and jury awards in these cases are often significant. 

Compensation depends on the injury and the ability to prove the level of damage inflicted upon the victim by the negligence of others. In addition to medical costs, lost wages and additional damage awards such as pain and suffering (sometimes including punitive damages) are also involved.
