Common Causes of Burn Injury
Coming into contact with a thermal, light, chemical, or radiation source can cause a burn injury. Common sources of burns include fires, home and workplace accidents, automobile accidents, gas explosions, exposure to toxic chemicals, and even certain leisure activities. Often, the exposure to the hazard could have been prevented, by those responsible either for creating or designing the product that caused the burn (product liability) or for maintaining safe premises (premises liability). When a burn injury victim is able to prove this lack of prevention, he or she may be able to obtain damages.
Types of Burn Injuries
There are three categories of burns: first-, second-, and third-degree. First-degree burns are the least severe; they damage the outer layer of skin and typically heal in a few days. Second-degree burns damage the second layer of skin but do not completely destroy it. Third-degree burns are the most severe; they damage all layers of skin and sometimes the underlying muscle tissue.
