Types of Burn Injuries

While they are relatively common, burn injuries can be some of the most severe injuries that a person can experience. Depending on the level of damage, burns can cause permanent scarring, severe pain, infections, and a host of other complications.

Medical professionals characterize burns into degrees, which range from first to third:

  • First-degree burns are the least severe form and affect the outer layer of skin. These injuries may cause some pain and discomfort but can be treated at home.
  • Second-degree burns affect the second layer of skin and may lead to blisters, swelling, and severe pain. These burns require medical attention.
  • Third-degree burns are the most serious and require emergency treatment. These burns can damage muscles, nerves, and other structures in the body and cause the skin to develop a waxy, leathery texture.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

Common Causes of Burn Injuries

People can suffer burn injuries due to hot surfaces, boiling liquids, open flames, toxic chemicals, and many other causes. Motor vehicle accidents, fires caused by dangerous or defective products, and structural fires due to hazardous conditions may also lead to these injuries. In many cases, another person’s actions are responsible for the burn injury.

Filing a Burn Injury Lawsuit in Nevada

If you suffer a serious burn injury, you may need extensive medical care and spend weeks or even months away from work. Burns are often very painful and could lead to financial hardship, permanent disabilities, and long-term emotional distress. 

If someone else caused your burn injury, you could file a lawsuit against the at-fault party, such as a driver, property owner, or landlord. Through your claim, you can secure compensation to pay for several types of damages, such as:

  • Medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

At the Janda Law Firm, we can help you craft a compelling case to prove the defendant’s liability; establish the nature and extent of your damages; and recover a fair settlement to pay for your losses.
