Types of Burn Injuries

Unfortunately, there are many types of burn injuries that can occur from a number of scenarios. There are four main types of burns, which include:

  • Thermal burns: Thermal burns are caused by contact with fire, steam, hot liquids, and other sources of extreme heat.
  • Light burns: Light burns are caused by sunlight or ultraviolet light.
  • Chemical burns: Chemical burns are caused by acid, alkali, or chemical explosions.
  • Radiation burns: Radiation burns are caused by contact with nuclear radiation.

There are three main categories of burn injuries classified by severity, which include:

  • First degree burns: First degree burns damage only the top part of the skin. Therefore, these types of burns are less serious and can usually be treated at home. First degree burns are characterized by redness and minor inflammation.
  • Second degree burns: Second degree burns damage the top layer of the skin and the layer underneath it. Second degree burns are more serious and are characterized by red, blistered skin. 
  • Third degree burns: Third degree burns can be very dangerous, as they damage all layers of the skin and tissue. Additionally, third degree burns can even affect organs and bones. Third degree burns may lead to nerve damage and may require skin grafts. These types of burns are characterized by a white or black dry wound, as well as charring.

If you have suffered a serious burn injury, it is essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible to avoid infection or any other issues. In addition, it is important to seek legal help from an experienced burn injury lawyer.

Complications of Burn Injuries

When it comes to burn injuries, there are unfortunately many complications that can arise. These are some of the most catastrophic injuries that can lead to life-altering consequences and disfigurement. Victims who suffer from severe scarring may struggle with a loss of confidence, depression, anxiety, and much more. In addition, there are many physical effects that can lead to serious problems, such as:

  • Infections: Because burn injuries are open wounds, they can easily become infected. The infection can then travel through the bloodstream and cause a life-threatening reaction called sepsis. Therefore, if you have suffered a serious burn injury, it is essential to seek medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Respiratory issues: Respiratory issues can be caused by inhaling hot ash and smoke, which can also result in burns to the mouth, tongue, throat, lungs, esophagus, and more.
  • Contractures: Over time, scar tissue from a burn injury can result in a contracture, which is the tightening of the muscles or tendons. As a result, this can make movement painful and difficult. In addition, if a contracture forms on the chest, it can make breathing difficult. 
  • Compromised immune systems: Certain types of infections and organ damage can result in permanent effects on one’s immune system, which can cause you to be prone to infections and other ailments, making it hard to fight them off.
