  • Lasting mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a burn injury, you are more than aware that a burn injury can take a tremendous toll on your emotional and physical well-being, as well as your financial security. Do not pay for someone else's negligent or reckless actions. Let an experienced attorney go to work for you so you can focus on healing and recovering from your injuries.

Our firm handles burn injury claims involving accidents such as:

Degrees of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are classified medically using a scale of "degrees," with higher degrees indicating more severe damage.

  • First-degree burns are generally considered minor and only involve damage to the outermost layer of skin. While painful, these types of burns cause minor redness and swelling and typically heal on their own with basic first aid. It is extremely rare for a first-degree burn to cause permanent damage.
  • Second-degree burns, also known as "partial thickness burns," involve damage to the top two layers of skin, causing pain, redness, swelling, and blistering. Second-degree burns that are larger than 3 inches or that cover the hands, feet, face, groin, or major joint can be considered major.
  • Third-degree burns involve damage to the deep layers of tissue, turning the skin black, brown, or white. Third degree burns can cause permanent nerve damage and often require surgical skin grafts to be treated.
