Burn injuries are a common occurrence in the United States, with approximately 1.1 million people seeking medical treatment for burns each year. These injuries can range from minor burns that require minimal treatment to severe burns that can result in lifelong disabilities or even death.

Burn injuries are one of the leading causes of unintentional death in the country, with around 4,500 deaths annually. With such a high prevalence, it is important to have a reliable and experienced burn injury attorney by your side, especially in areas like Palm Beach Gardens, FL where burn injuries are common.

The Causes of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, including fires, explosions, hot surfaces, chemicals, and electrical sources. However, the most common cause of burn injuries is fire, accounting for approximately 43% of all burn injuries. These fires can occur in homes, workplaces, and public spaces, making it crucial for individuals to be aware of their rights and options in the event of a burn injury.

Types of Burn Injuries

There are three main types of burns: first-degree, second-degree, and third-degree. First-degree burns are the mildest and only affect the outer layer of the skin, causing redness and minor pain. Second-degree burns affect both the outer and underlying layers of skin, resulting in blisters, severe pain, and potential scarring. Third-degree burns are the most severe and can damage all layers of the skin, as well as nerves, muscles, and bones. These burns often require extensive medical treatment and can result in permanent disfigurement and disability.

The Impact of Burn Injuries

The physical and emotional toll of a burn injury can be devastating. In addition to the physical pain and potential scarring, burn victims may also experience emotional trauma, loss of income, and ongoing medical expenses. This can be especially difficult for individuals who have suffered severe burns and are unable to work or participate in daily activities.
