In a burn injury case, knowing which type of burn injury you have sustained is important. Burn injuries are classified into four categories based on how deeply the skin is damaged.

First-Degree Burns

It is very common for a first-degree burn to be called a superficial burn since this burn injury only affects the first layer of the skin. First-degree burns are mild and most often don’t need medical treatment. The exception is when these minor burns are large and painful. The burn site will appear red and dry; while it will be painful, there will be no blisters. It’s less likely that this burn injury will cause long-term damage to your tissues.

Second-Degree Burns

Second-degree burns are more severe as they affect the outer skin layer and part of the second skin layer. Second-degree burns can be incredibly uncomfortable and require several weeks to heal. They will impact large areas of your skin and are more prone to serious complications and infections.

Third-Degree Burns

Full-thickness burns or third-degree burns destroy both layers of your skin. You should hire a burn injury lawyer to represent you when you are suffering from a burn injury caused by another person or entity. Third-degree burns are very severe and may leave you with permanent damage to your bones, muscles, and tendons.

Fourth-Degree Burns

This is the most extreme and catastrophic of burn injuries because it can leave the victim with no feeling in the burnt area because it destroys their nerve endings. When someone suffers from fourth-degree burns, their lives will forever be changed by this severe burn injury that can lead to further health complications and even death.

The burn injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Scott J. Senft will not rest until the at-fault party pays for the physical pain you have been forced to endure. Contact our law office today to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in Boca Raton.

Common Causes of Burn Injuries in Boca Raton

Burn injuries often result from another person’s negligent or careless actions. We see them in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, workplace accidents, and other types of cases. These painful injuries may also result in a wrongful death claim.

The leading causes of burn injury in adults are smoking and open flames, while children are most prone to scalding. Your Boca Raton burn injury lawyer can represent you for burn injuries from a variety of causes.

Construction Accidents

Workplace injuries that involve burns are unfortunately common for construction workers and those in industrial jobs. Electrical burns, chemical burns from toxic chemicals, gas explosions, and thermal burns can permanently disfigure a worker.

Defective Products

You may have a defective electrical appliance in your home that can spark or catch fire. This can leave you with contact burns or electrical burns. Additionally, a home may catch fire due to faulty wiring, causing the occupants to sustain burns as they attempt to escape.

Thermal Burns

Thermal burns can happen when you come into contact with hot objects. They can occur in a restaurant kitchen or other place of business or inside your home.

Boca Raton Apartment Buildings

Under Florida law, property owners have a duty of care to keep the premises safe. It is a huge concern for the various residents who live in apartment buildings and condominiums. The property owners must maintain the electrical wiring of the property, ensure smoke alarms are up to code, have a secure fire escape, install fireproof doors, and keep apartment fire extinguishers charged.
