Burn Injuries Suffered on the Job

Among the most terrifying forms of injuries a person may have is a burn. A mild to severe burn damage can result in persistent, intense agony whereas a light burn might heal reasonably fast without leaving lasting scars. A person who has suffered severe burns can need skin grafts that leave behind lifelong scars and who has to be placed into a medically induced coma in order to recover.

The survivor may be able to receive compensation for the bodily, psychological, and financial harm brought on by the injury if someone else's negligent or wrongful actions contributed to or caused the burn injuries. Determining who is ultimately financially responsible for the burn injury you have sustained is one of the most difficult components of a case involving serious burn injuries. A variety of situations, including those involving a variety of legal disciplines, can result in severe burn damage. A skilled Florida burn injury lawyer can assist you in choosing the best course of action if you have suffered a burn injury as a result of someone else's reckless or negligent behavior.

Your level of burn injury will play a role in the amount of compensation that is available. The degree to which a burn damage is severe is as follows:

  • First-degree burns: has an impact on the epidermis, the top layer of skin. A first-degree burn might resemble a bad yet uncomfortable sunburn. In most cases, the burn will recover in 3-5 days with little to no hospitalization.
  • Second-degree burns: has an impact on both the epidermis and dermis, two of the skin's outer and interior layers. Blisters may form and the burn will have a strong red or pink appearance. Healing from second-degree burns might take weeks.
  • Third-degree burns: impacts any deeper tissues or bone as well as the dermis, epidermis, and hypodermis of the skin. Third-degree burns are serious, can take several months to heal, leave behind lifelong scarring, and may even result in nerve damage that prevents the injured part from being used normally.
  • Fourth-degree burns: burns that penetrate the skin and reach the layers of muscle and fat. These burn victims frequently experience shock. They frequently pass away from the injuries and need to be placed in a coma while recovery takes place.
