Severe Burns

Severe Burns | Seattle Personal Injury Lawyer
Burn injury, burn injuries, third degree burns

A burn can be one of the most painful injuries that a person can have. Burns are classified by severity into three levels. Sunburns and burns that involve minimal tissue damage are categorized as first-degree burns. Second-degree burns injure the outer-layer, or epidermis, and the underlying layer of skin, or dermis, causing redness, pain, swelling and blisters. Second-degree burns may harm hair follicles and sweat glands.

Third-degree burns are the most serious, with charring of skin and numbness present. Third-degree burns often cause severe disfigurement. Heat inhalation and smoke inhalation injuries frequently accompany burn injuries.

Burns may occur as a result of chemical exposure, airbag deployment, car accidents, explosions, defective products, or as a result of the negligence of a landlord or property owner.
