Common Causes Of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries are not all the same. Some are going to be far more severe than others, which can also have an impact on how the legal process unfolds.
It’s best to have this information in hand and keep the medical records to ensure you receive justice when it is time to fight for your rights.
Categories of Burns
1. 1st Degree
This refers to burns that only impact the outer layer of skin. These are often noted as being surface-level burns because they don’t lead to long-term damage. For the average person, it will only lead to a bit of redness and pain.
2. 2nd Degree
This refers to burns that impact not only the outer layer of skin but also the dermis underneath. The skin will often look red and swollen when this happens. Some also report shininess where the burn has occurred. This is due to the burn getting through the top layer of the skin.
3. 3rd Degree
This is also known as a full-thickness burn, which means it goes through multiple layers of the skin leading to significant damage to the burned area. This can include severe pain, swelling, and a change in color to that part of the skin. The color itself can be black, yellow, or white.
4. 4th Degree
This type of burn is the worst degree of burn a person can experience. It refers to a burn that goes all the way through the skin’s layers and into the muscles and/or tendons. The muscles and tendons can also be burned when this occurs leading to extra damage.
This is a breakdown of the different burn injuries and what they encompass. Take your time to consult with a specialist at Crockett Law Group to learn more about what can be done for you legally.
Damages You Can Recover Through A Burn Injury Claim
When it is time to put in a burn injury claim, it’s important to go through the type of claim you can file moving forward.
There are several layers associated with damages and how you can recover them through a burn injury claim.
1. Economic Damages
This is the first type of damage most people will list in their burn injury claim. The idea here is to cite any type of monetary damage that was done to you due to the burn injury. This can include a myriad of things such as prescription fees, medical fees, therapy, and/or anything else that is caused due to the burn injury.
2. Non-Economic Damages
This refers to the second type of damage that impacts your quality of life. It can be something as simple as not being able to complete specific tasks during the day or the emotional distress associated with the incident itself.
In situations such as this, it’s important to list what those non-economic damages are and how they impacted your quality of life.
3. Punitive Damages
This is the final type of damage that is listed in a burn injury claim and will be vetted by the judge. The idea here is to list local regulations to demonstrate how the law was broken and why additional fines and/or penalties should be handed out to the other party.
If necessary, this can include fines but also jail time. It is up to the judge’s discretion for burn injury cases.
Look through all of these details to make sure you are on the right path. Crockett Law Group will take the time to help out and will ensure you receive justice for what took place.
