West Palm Beach Burn Injury Classifications
Burn injuries are classified according to their degree. The higher the degree, the more severe the burn injury. First-degree burns are the least serious and result in redness and irritation of the skin’s top layer. Second-degree burns involve scarring and blistering the top and underlying layers of skin and are more serious than first-degree burns. Third and fourth-degree burns are the most severe and involve damage to all layers of the skin. Third and fourth-degree burns usually require skin grafts and cause permanent scarring and disfigurement.
Burn injuries also affect more than the skin. Severe burns can cause organ failure, respiratory problems, nerve damage, and circulation problems. They are also known for the extreme pain and suffering they cause.
Burn injuries take an extensive physical, emotional, and financial toll. The costs of dealing with severe burn injuries can be high and include therapy procedures, skin grafts, surgery, medication, and rehabilitation. These costs can incur a large financial drain. A burn injury lawsuit could compensate you for these losses and any other expenses that insurance will not cost.
