Car accidents, house fires, chemical exposure and electrical tools can all cause burn injuries. Burns can differ in severity, but some burn injuries can be life-changing and even fatal.

At The Law Offices of Daniel Feder, we understand the severity of burn injuries. Those who have been injured because of negligence have a right to financial compensation. Our lawyers have been advocating for burn victims for more than 25 years.

Different Types Of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are graded from one to four in terms of their severity:

  • First-degree burns: These burns tend to be superficial. They can often be treated with medication and ointments, and the damage is not usually life-changing.
  • Second-degree burns: These burns are more serious because they go beyond the top layer of skin. There is a higher risk of infection, so stronger medications may be necessary.
  • Third-degree burns: This type of burn is very serious because it penetrates every layer of skin. The damage can also extend to the nerves, resulting in permanent damage.
  • Fourth-degree burns: This is the most serious type of burn injury. The burn extends beyond every layer of skin and often covers a large area of the body. Fourth-degree burns can be life-threatening.

There are also several different causes of burn injuries. These include:

  • Thermal burns: Thermal burns occur when the skin comes into contact with a hot substance or surface. These types of burns are frequently seen in car accidents.
  • Chemical burns: Chemical burns happen when the body is exposed to hazardous substances such as acids.
  • Electrical burns: Electrical burns occur when high currents of electricity run through the body. Faulty electrical goods are a common source of electrical burns.
