Types of Burns

Although burns can be fatal, many burn injuries can heal completely with time and treatment. Burn injuries are classified into three different categories:

First degree burns
Burns in which just the first layer of skin is affected. The skin is reddened and normally heals in approximately one week. First degree burns can still be extremely painful.

Second degree burns
Burns that affect both the first and second layer of skin. The skin appears moist and will often blister with a second degree burn. Pain is classified as severe for these types of burn injuries.

Third degree burns
Burns that affect all layers of skin and even damage the tissue underneath the skin, including blood vessels and even muscle. Skin is white or black and appears dry. Third degree burns always lead to permanent scarring. Pain is classified as extreme for anyone suffering a third degree burn. However, because a third degree burn may damage nerves and nerve endings, it can actually be less pain at first, then the pain increases in severity.

Costs Associated with Burn Injuries

Improved technology in treating burns has saved thousands of lives and has helped to improve quality of life for burn victims. However, the price for medical treatment is extremely costly. Medical costs routinely run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. There is also the loss of income that results from many serious burn injuries (due to not being able to work). You need a highly experienced Denver personal injury attorney who can help to get you the compensation you deserve to help pay for medical costs associated with a serious burn injury. The attorneys of the Tenge Law Firm, LLC have won millions for past clients and we will fight hard to recover the maximum recovery for your injury.
