What are the most common types of burn injuries?

Burn injuries are some of the most serious personal injuries we see, and the scarring and disfigurement caused may affect people for the rest of their lives. These injuries often require expensive surgeries and skin grafts, along with long-term rehabilitation. There are three levels of burn severity:

  • First-degree burns. These are the least severe of burns, although they can still cause significant pain and suffering. First-degree burns are limited to the top layer of the skin and typically cause swelling and redness.
  • Second-degree burns. These burns are more serious, going beyond the top layer of the skin and resulting in blisters, redness and severe pain. Second-degree burns may take weeks to heal.
  • Third-degree burns. The most serious type of burn injury, third-degree burns impact all layers of the skin and the tissue underneath it. In some cases, they require skin grafts and surgery to heal, with the damage lasting for years or indefinitely.

Burns may result from a number of scenarios. A lit cigarette left unattended can start a house fire, while cooking or electrical accidents can result in fires that spread incredibly quickly. Defective products and equipment can malfunction and create a spark, which can cause surprisingly serious burns. In addition, appliances like hot water heaters and boilers have been known to explode at times, spraying hot water or chemicals onto those nearby.

Many of the burn injury cases we work with come from people who have been injured at work. The most common injuries occur due to chemical spills, malfunctioning equipment and boiler explosions, all of which can hurt multiple people at once. You can turn to Feinberg & Alban PC if you’ve suffered a burn injury on the job and need to explore filing a workers’ compensation claim.

A record of success in burn injury cases

Indeed, Feinberg & Alban PC is well-known for a recent burn injury case in which Attorney Robert Feinberg won a $7.7 million verdict for a client injured in a boiler explosion. The client, who had 20 years of experience as a boilermaker, suffered severe burns over half of his body and had to go through four surgeries. Suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and unable physically or mentally to return to the job he loved, he successfully received compensation covering his medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
