Burn Injury Classifications
Burn injuries are generally classified by the type or cause of the burn. Our attorneys handle burn injury claims involving the three most common types of burns:
Thermal Burn Injury
Thermal burn injuries are caused by flames, steam, scalding liquids, hot metals, and other external heat sources.
Chemical Burn Injury
Chemical burns are caused result from contact with caustic chemicals such as acids, alkalies, detergents, or solvents. Chemical burns can cause deep tissue damage, pain, infection, low blood pressure, muscle twitching,seizures, and cardiac arrest. Chemical burn injuries can be caused during common household projects.
Electrical Burn Injury
An electrical burn injury consists of damage to the skin and/or internal organs caused by direct exposure to an electrical current. Though some electrical injuries appear minor, they may cause significant internal damage, particularly to the heart, muscles, or brain. The severity of an electrical burn injury depends on the intensity of the voltage to which the victim was exposed, the current’s route through the body, and the promptness and effectiveness of treatment.
