Burn Injuries Sorted by Degrees

Medical contexts sort burn injuries by their “degree.” The deeper a burn and the more widespread it is, the higher the degree will be. As such, the worse your burn degree, the more likely the value of your burn injury claim will increase.

Burn degrees are sorted as:

  • First: First-degree burns shouldn’t require anything but mild first aid treatments. Although, infants and elders could experience some health complications depending on the burn’s location.
  • Second: Second-degree burns should be treated in an urgent care facility to ensure they do not become infected or heal incorrectly. Because a second-degree burn can be extremely painful, you might be justified in filing a burn injury lawsuit against the party that caused it.
  • Third: Third-degree burns call for emergency medical attention. To recover from a third-degree burn, you might need an extended hospital stay, several surgeries, and physical therapy. A lawsuit will be justified if the burn was caused by someone else’s mistakes.

There are also fourth, fifth, and sixth degrees for burn injuries. However, burns of these severities are most likely to be fatal. If you lost a loved one who suffered a catastrophic burn, then we can talk to you about filing a wrongful death claim to pursue justice and compensation.

Calculating the Value of Your Burn Injury Claim

Insurance defense teams answering burn injury claims filed by injured parties often try to convince those claimants that their burn “isn’t that bad,” and that they should “drop the case.” Don’t let an insurer make that decision for you. Talk to one of our burn injury attorneys in Philadelphia instead. We would be happy to help you determine the value of your burn injury claim, so you can decide if you want to pursue it.

Damages that will add to your claim’s value are:

  • Medical treatment costs
  • Rehabilitative therapy costs
  • Lost wages
  • Lowered earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability complications

You can count on us to go through your damages, one by one, and calculate them together carefully. We want to maximize the overall value of your case because you deserve every penny in compensation. That’s part of what it means to be represented by a law firm that genuinely cares about your future wellbeing and financial recovery.

Disfigurement & Scarring Lawsuits - How Much is a Scar Worth?

Many burn injury victims may find themselves with permanent scars from their injuries. In many cases scarring or disfigurement can have a long-term effect on the victim and lead to loss of self-esteem or loss of enjoyment of life. The value of your scar lawsuit will depend on several things:

  • How old you are (scarring in younger individuals typically leads to a higher settlement than scarring in older individuals)
  • Where your scars are (scars or disfigurement on the face typically result in higher settlements)
  • Whether or not your scar can be removed surgically
  • How permanent the scarring is

Can You Sue If You Get Burned At Work?

Burn injuries are common in certain workplaces including restaurants, factories, construction and others. In most cases if your injuries were caused by a workplace accident, you will most likely have to go through the workers' compensation claims process in order to recover damages. However, if your injuries were caused by gross negligence on the part of your employer, or by a defective product supplied by a third-party, you may have grounds to pursue a third-party personal injury lawsuit.

    “I highly recommend Attorney Molly & the firm to anyone seeking reliable & compassionate assistance during challenging times.”

    I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call. I was connected to Attorney Molly Clark, who made a significant impact. Her comforting personality created a welcoming environment during our interactions, turning what could have been a somber experience into one filled with positivity. Our upbeat conversations, in contrast to the challenging situation, improved my well-being.

    What truly won me over was Molly's commitment to keeping me informed about the progress of my situation. Whenever I called her with questions, she promptly provided answers, ensuring I had the information I needed when I needed it. Working with Fellerman & Ciarimboli was a positive experience given the circumstances I was facing. I highly recommend Attorney Molly and the firm to anyone seeking reliable and compassionate assistance during challenging times.

    I was in a bad accident and I had my daughter in the car with me. I highly recommend this firm.
