Common Causes of Burn Injuries

The majority of burn injuries suffer from one of four different types of burns: thermal, chemical, electrical, and radiation. Thermal burns are the most frequently encountered type and can result from exposure to hot metals, steam, flames, or other objects.

All types of burns can lead to tissue damage, ranging from first-degree burns that usually don't leave lasting scars to fourth-degree burns that can cause disfigurement, scarring, and even amputations. Burn injuries can occur in a variety of situations, including:

  • Mistreatment
  • Accidental release of chemicals
  • Hazardous premises
  • Faulty merchandise
  • Electrical shocks
  • Fires 
  • Explosions
  • Auto accidents
  • Workplace accidents

Types Of Burn Injuries

Burns are classified based on the extent and severity of the damage they cause to the skin. The four primary categories of burns are as follows:

First-Degree Burns: These burns typically result in red, tender skin that may be sensitive to the touch, similar to mild sunburn. The skin remains unbroken and intact. 

Second-Degree Burns: This burn can cause red skin, swelling, and blisters, which may become infected if left untreated. 

Third-Degree Burns: Third-degree burns cause extremely painful, charred, and translucent skin, often requiring medical intervention. Tissue damage is significant, and scarring is common.

Fourth-Degree Burns: These burns are the most severe, penetrating beyond the skin and affecting bones, ligaments, and muscles. They can be life-threatening and may necessitate amputation.

I hired Justin to represent my daughter after we were in a car accident. Justin explained the whole process to me and made the process simple to understand. I highly recommend Justin to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

Justin is the best! His staff is amazing too! He's your go-to guy for all accident cases. My only complaint is that my wife thinks he's cute and it makes me uncomfortable. Lol. Thanks for the money Justin!

James O.

Justin was amazing dealing with a non-injury accident we experienced. He was able to get the at fault's insurance to pay despite the driver denying any wrong doing initially. He was quick to get a resolution for us so we could get repairs taken care of. Thanks, Justin!
