Burn Injury Classifications
No two burn injuries are the same, and the circumstances that cause a burn are just part of the process of establishing the need for compensation. The classification of the burn is a factor as well.
A first-degree burn is the mildest injury of this type, as only the top layer of the skin is damaged. Treatment is typically minimal for first-degree burns. Characteristics of this injury include redness around the affected area and temporary tenderness.
A second-degree burn causes damage beyond the outer layer of skin but does not quite reach the muscle. They are characterized by blisters and significant sores around the wound. While this burn type is severe, it is not typically life-threatening if adequately treated.
Third- and fourth-degree burns are the worst as they result in damage that goes through all the layers of skin to the bones, organs, and/or muscles. This injury type can be life-threatening and requires immediate emergency medical intervention. Physical characteristics of this burn category include charred skin and significant discoloration around the wound.
How Compensation Can Help with Burn Injuries
Compensation can help address burn injuries as they generally have implications beyond the acute stage of the accident. It can also help with:
- Pain and suffering
- Emergency medical expenses
- Long-term therapy and rehabilitation
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Loss of income loss of future earnings potential
- Changes in lifestyle
The expenses of burn injuries can be considerable and wreak havoc on your personal finances. Compensation can help offset some of these costs and give you the time and space to heal, which can take time with a burn injury. You should not be forced to turn your personal budget upside down to deal with the implications of an injury that occurred because of the carelessness or negligence of others.
