What causes a burn injury?

Burn injuries may be casued by:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Accidental or intentionally set fires 
  • Chemical exposure
  • Explosions 
  • Exposure to extreme heat 
  • Touching hot surface  
  • Defective products 
  • Radiation 
  • Friction
  • Extreme cold 

The severity of the burn may be affected by the degree of heat, duration of the exposure and the sensitivity of an individual’s skin. 

Classification Of Burns

First Degree:  Also known as the superficial burns that affect the outer layer of the skin known as the epidermis. These burns usually arise from mild sunburn or brief contact with hot objects. Symptoms include redness, minor inflammation and pain. Healing will take up to a few days without scarring.

Second Degree: These burns will affect both the epidermis and the underlying layer of skin called dermis. Symptoms include redness, blisters, swelling and severe pain. Healing may take weeks, leading to possible scarring. These burns typically result from prolonged exposure to hot liquids. 

Third Degree: These burns extend into  deeper tissue, such as fat, muscle or bone. There may be little to no pain due to nerve damage. The skin may appear charred or white.  These burns typically require medical treatment, often including skin grafts, and can cause significant and long complications. Third degree burns are typically caused by prolonged exposure to flames, chemicals, or extremely hot objects or liquids. 

Fourth Degree: Burns extend beyond the skin into deeper tissues, such as muscle, tendons, or bone. As the nerve are often damaged, surgery is usually necessary. Fourth degree burns will likley cause scarring and disfigurement. 

Burn Injury Compensation

If you sustain a burn injury caused by the actions of others, you may be entitled to file a claim and obtain compensation. Burn injuries, especially moderate to severe ones, can indeed lead to substantial financial burden such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Burn care 
  • Loss of income 
  • Rehabilitation and therapy 
  • Home modifications
  • Long-term care
  • Psychological impact 

These expenses add up quickly and place a huge financial burden on patients and families. Additionally, burn injuries can also lead to indirect costs such as the decreased quality of life and emotional distress.
