Burn Injury Severity & Classification

To understand just how badly you have been burned and how it will likely affect your livelihood, it helps to understand how burn injury severities are classified. In medical contexts, burns are sorted into degrees, with more harm being done the higher the degree number.

The most common burn degrees are:

  • First: Mild burn that only damages the top layers of skin and can be remedied with in-home first-aid like a wet cloth or ice patch.
  • Second: Moderate burn that damages several layers of skin. Medical attention should be sought as soon as possible. Second-degree burns can cause debilitating pain depending on what body parts are affected.
  • Third: Severe burn that damages all layers of skin and soft tissues or bone underneath. Immediate medical attention is required. Untreated third-degree burns can cause death due to shock or infection.

There are fourth, fifth, and sixth-degree burns as well. However, the intensity of these burns will more than likely cause enough bodily harm to be fatal. At that point, a burn injury claim would be replaced by a wrongful death claim.

Damages in a Burn Injury Claim

A severe burn injury can take you off your feet and keep you out of work for weeks or months. Operations like skin grafts are often required, but they are painful and take time to complete followed by extensive recovery. If you want to stay financially stable as your recover, then you are going to need significant compensation paid by the party that hurt you.

Recoverable compensation might include costs of:

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery
  • Rehabilitative therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced income capacity
  • Pain and suffering

When everything is added together, your damages could be significant, easily ranging into six figures. Do not worry about the total cost, though. The defendant needs to worry about it because we can swing tirelessly away at their case until they agree to a fair settlement.
