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.
