Types of Burn Injury Cases

It is possible to sustain a burn injury in a variety of ways. Whether you were at work or driving your car when you suffered your burn injury, Dempsey & Kingsland can help.

Common types of burn injuries that we have handled include:

  • Light burns from sources of ultraviolet light
  • Chemical burns caused by acids, alkali substances, or by fires
  • Thermal burns, which are caused by steam, hot water, and other sources of intense heat
  • Radiation burns caused by contact with nuclear radiation

These burn injuries may be caused by car and truck accidents, explosions and fires, construction accidents, workplace accidents, and in premises liability incidents.

Degrees of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are divided into different categories, or degrees, based on their severity. The higher the degree, the more serious the burn is.

  • First-degree burns affect only the outermost layer of skin, resulting in redness and pain. A first-degree burn is generally considered minor and will heal on its own with simple first aid.
  • Second-degree burns affect both the outer and underlying layer of skin, resulting in pain, redness, swelling, and blistering. Second degree burns that are larger than 3 inches or located on the hands, feet, groin, or major joint are considered serious.
  • Third-degree burns penetrate into the deep layers of skin, causing the affected tissue to turn black, brown, or white. Third-degree burns often result in permanent nerve damage and numbness, requiring surgical skin grafts.

It is crucial to speak with a Kansas City serious personal injury attorney as soon as possible to learn about your rights and to make sure that all of your options are available to you for recovering compensation. Our team looks forward to hearing your story and getting started on your case.
