The Types of Burn Injuries
Burns are one of the most traumatic injuries and very expensive to treat. There are three categories of burns based upon severity.
The three types of burns include:
First-degree burns are the least severe but can still become infected and require medical treatment. Second-degree burns involve damage that goes beyond the top layer of skin, often result in blistered skin, and can take several weeks to heal.
Third-degree burns are the worst type of burns and can cause severe disfigurement, extensive nerve damage, hypothermia, and even death.
Compensatory Damages for Burn Injury Victims
If you have been burned because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to pursue compensation to help pay for the losses you incur. The types of damages you may be entitled to cover can be divided into two categories: economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages may include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Skin grafting procedures
- Burn unit treatment
- Property damage
Non-economic damages are often more difficult to quantify but can include losses for scarring, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and physical impairment.
