Types of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can range from minor to severe. The status of a burn is based on several factors, including what caused the burns, the victim’s age, and whether treatment was administered soon after the accident. The four categories of burns, from less to more severe, include:

  • First-Degree – red, painful, and sunburn-like burns that only affect the outermost layer of skin, and typically don’t cause permanent scarring
  • Second-Degree – deep red, blistered, and extremely painful burns that affect the outermost layer of skin, as well as the layer beneath, called the dermis layer.
  • Third-Degree – white, charred, flaking burns that destroy the first and second layer of a victim’s skin, and could damage the tissue below
  • Fourth-Degree – the most severe type of burn, fourth-degree burns destroy existing layers of skin, and cause damage to bones, muscles, and tendons located at the burn site — nerve endings are destroyed at this degree as well

Most burn injuries, especially third and fourth-degree burns, require immediate medical attention, and can cause high medical expenses such as hospital bills, medical accessories, and future treatment needed to treat the victim’s severe and life-altering burns. Under Missouri law, if an employer or individual’s negligence is responsible for another person’s burn injuries or financial damages, the liable party is often required to compensate the victim for damages.

Depending on the cause of a victim’s burns, where they occurred, and their severity, burn injury victims could be eligible to recover compensation from several parties. If burn injuries are caused on the job, due to an employer’s negligence, another employee, or occupational exposure, the victim can file a workers compensation claim against their employer. Before filing a workers comp claim it’s crucial to report the incident to your employer, document injuries, and provide evidence of the employer’s negligence. In situations that involve more severe and permanent injuries, such as scarring and bone damage, it’s essential to have a St. Louis Workers Compensation Lawyer represent your case and offer protection from your employer or their insurer during this vulnerable time.

Burn injuries caused in premises liability accidents require knowledge of Missouri’s Premises Liability laws. Under Premises Liability, property owners are required to maintain a safe and hazard-free environment. If an owner is negligent in maintaining the property, and someone is burned or harmed as a result, the property owner is fully liable for the victim’s damages. Premises liability can be proved by immediately seeking medical treatment, filing a police report, and bringing a premises liability claim with help from a St. Louis Premises Liability Lawyer.

If you suffered burn injuries due to a manufacturer or distributor’s negligence, you can recover compensation from the negligent party under Missouri’s Product Liability laws. Under product liability, if a product’s design, manufacturing, or instructions causes a consumer to burn themselves, the injured person can sue the manufacturer or distributor for negligence. Product liability claims are subject to strict liability, which doesn’t require the consumer to prove the manufacturer or company’s negligence when pursuing a claim. Instead, product liability victims must provide proof of their injuries and proof of purchase when filing a claim. Typically, full compensation for burn injuries caused by a defective product can be recovered with help from a Product Liability Lawyer in St. Louis.
