Burn Injury and Death Cases

Georgia Burn Injury Law Firm

Burn victim cases are complex.

Severe burn injury and death can occur due to fire, exposure to heat such as steam or boiling water, and exposure to chemicals or radiation. The effects of a burn on children and adults alike can be devastating and even deadly.

Burn cases also involve and severe emotional distress that may result from the burn and the permanent scarring that results.

Whether you have suffered serious burns or lost a loved one due to:

  • burns from defective products and equipment
  • chemical burns,
  • electrical burns,
  • radiation
  • severe scald burns, or
  • burns resulting from post-car accident fuel-fed fires or explosions

Burns can also result in severe psychological and emotional distress related to scarring and deformity.

Understanding the Severity of a Burn

First Degree Burns: usually only effect the outer layer of skin and are limited to redness and minor pain, such as sunburn. First degree burns are treated as a minor burn unless they are extensive.

Second Degree Burns: affect the second layer of skin and often involve blistering; the level of pain will depend upon nerve damage.

Third Degree Burns: The most serious burn injuries.  Third degree burn injury will cause permanent tissue damages as well as major damage and deformity to all layers of the skin.  Third degree burns usually require skin grafts or plastic surgery.  Injured third degree burn victims are typically flown immediately to a local burn center.
