Types and Causes of Burn Injuries
Because burns have various causes and may range in severity, it is important to identify the specific cause and therefore who is liable. It can be helpful to understand the different types and common causes of burns.
There are three primary categories of burns:
- First Degree Burns: affecting only the outer layer of the skin. A slight sunburn is an example of this type of burn injury.
- Second Degree Burns: affecting the outer layer of the skin and the layer underneath. Contact with a hot pan in the kitchen may cause this type of burn.
- Third Degree Burns: affecting the deepest layer of skin and the tissues underneath. This is the most severe type of burn injury and may even result in nerve damage, muscle damage, and other significant harm. Contact with fire or electricity may cause third degree burns.
Exposure to the following may cause burns:
