Common Burn Injuries

Fires are the most common cause of burns. Lack of smoke detectors, non-compliance with fire codes or poor electrical wiring are examples of negligence that may lead to or increase risk of injury in the event of a fire.

The skin is composed of the epidermis (outer layer) and dermis (inner layer). First-degree burns only damage the epidermis, while second-degree burns damage the epidermis and dermis, and third-degree burns penetrate all the way to underlying tissue, muscle and even bone. Often, third-degree burns result in skin grafts and serious scarring. Treatment for severe burns can lead to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in short- and long-term medical care.
