Types of Burn Injuries
Depending on the type and details of burn you receive during an accident will affect your personal injury compensation.
- First degree burns are the less severe of the burns and only affects the outer layer of the skin but can still cause emotional damage.
- Second-degree burns are classified when the burns permeate through the first layers of skin and burns the more substantial skin layers underneath.
- Third-degree burns will go through all the layers of skin, stopping right before burning the bone.
- Fourth-degree burns are the most severe and can cause permanent disfigurement or even death.
