Burn Injuries Can Lead To A Lifetime Of Agony

Few injuries are as devastating as burn injuries. Whether through shock damage, chemical exposure or proximity to fire, burns can lead to significant, life-changing damage to the skin, muscles and bone. If you were injured or have lost a loved one due to a serious burn, contacting a skilled personal injury attorney is a crucial first step to recovering the monetary compensation you are owed.

Different Levels Of Burn Injury

Typically, burn injuries are categorized based on the damage with increasing degrees of severity. They are labeled as first-degree burns, second-degree burns and so on. There are six different degrees of burn injuries with the fifth and sixth degrees proving fatal. Burns can not only damage the skin, but the subcutaneous tissue, muscle, cartilage, tendons and bone. In many cases, the affected limb must be amputated.
