If You Have Suffered a Burn or Scald Injury, There May be Options to Recover Compensation From Parties Who Share Liability
Burn injuries can be painful and cause permanent damage. They can also cause heavy financial burdens due to medical care you may need to receive, and the time you might have to take off from work.

What are the Different Types of Burns?
Burns range in severity from first degree to fourth degree. First degree burns are superficial and usually only result in minor pain and discomfort. Second degree burns can range from relatively superficial burns that result in some pain and blisters, to deeper burns that may leave scarring or require skin grafts to repair the damage. Third degree burns are deep burns that require skin grafts and can result in amputation. Fourth degree burns are the worst burns that usually burn through all the nerves and muscles. They usually result in amputation and can also lead to severe infection.
What are Common Causes of Burns?
The most common cause of burn injuries is, of course, fire or heat. The burn injury can be caused by fire or other hot substances like liquid or steam. One of the common ways people get burn injuries from heat is in workplace accidents. Many jobs require workers to be exposed to high temperature equipment like machinery. Another way to get a burn injury is a serious car accident. For example, many car accidents result in part of the car catching on fire which can cause a burn injury if you are not able to get out of the car. Heat injuries can cause all of the different degrees of burns.
Another common cause of burn injuries is from electrical burns. Electrical burn injuries are caused by exposure to an electric shock. One common way that you could receive an electrical burn is, again, in the workplace. Your job may expose you to machinery or other objects that require electricity to operate, and if they are not properly cared for or if they are malfunctioning, they can cause an electric burn. Another common way you can receive an electric burn is if you are on someone else's property and receive an electric burn due to the faulty state of the property. Electric burns generally only cause first through third degree burns.
Yet another common cause of burn injuries is chemical burns. Chemical burns involve corrosive substances like acid that are able to burn all the way down to the bone. Most chemical burn injuries are suffered in workplace accidents where the employee handles such chemicals. Chemical burns generally cause third and fourth degree burns.
