Carrollton Burn Injury Lawyers

Burns are among injuries that are deemed catastrophic.  In fact, burns can be the most mentally and emotionally difficult injuries a human can sustain.  According to the American Burn Association, in 2013, there were 450,000 instances of burn injuries in the United States requiring medical care.  Of those injuries, only 3,400 were fatal. This data shows that the majority of burn victims survive their injuries.  While lucky to be alive, the deformities associated with burn injuries can be horrific requiring the assistance of a Carrollton burn injury attorney.

Three Types of Burns

  • First Degree Burns – Superficial and only affect the outer layer of skin.  To put it in context, when you suffer from sunburn, you most likely have suffered a first-degree burn;
  • Second Degree Burns – Affects the outermost layer of the skin, as well as the layer underneath.  Symptoms include blisters, painful swelling, and possible discoloration of skin.
  • Third Degree Burns – A “full thickness” burn.  It destroys the outermost layer of skin and the layer underneath.  New skin will not grow on a third-degree burn; therefore, it is critical that the injured person seeks medical attention immediately.

Burn injuries are caused by a variety of accidents.  Examples include motor vehicle accidents, building fires, fireworks accidents, and chemical/electrical burns.  Sometimes the burns are the result of an unavoidable accident; however, other times, they are caused by the negligence of another person or company.
