Types / Degrees of Burns

Burns are medically classified into three different categories:

  • First-degree burns: First-degree burns only affect the outermost layer of skin and typically result in minor discomfort. Sunburn is perhaps the most common example of a first-degree burn. Most first-degree burns are minor and heal with simple first-aid.
  • Second-degree burns: Second-degree burns involve damage to the top two layers of skin, resulting in severe pain and blistering. Also known as "partial thickness burns," some second-degree burns may cause permanent scarring.
  • Third-degree burns: Third-degree burns damage the top two layers of skin as well as the fat layer beneath the skin, causing white or black charring. Depending on the severity, third-degree burns can result in permanent nerve damage and may require skin graft surgery to be treated.
  • Fourth-degree burns: Fourth-degree burns damage the deep tissues, muscle, and bone. These types of burns are life-threatening and are typically the result of prolonged exposure to flames or high-voltage electric shocks.

The severity of your burns will have an impact on the value of your injury case. An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding your injuries and help you seek compensation for your full range of damages.
