Types of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are categorized by four degrees as follows:

  • First-degree burns: Minor burns at the surface level, such as a sunburn.
  • Second-degree burns: Impacts both the upper and lower layers of the skin; can cause permanent scars.
  • Third-degree burns: Serious burn that affects all lawyers of the skin and results in tissue damage; often requires extensive treatment and even skin grafting.
  • Fourth-degree burns: Affects all layers of skin, nerves and muscles, usually resulting in death or permanent disfigurement.

Most second-to-fourth degree burns require ongoing skin grafting and intensive medical treatment to effectively heal. Chronic medical conditions are expensive to treat and can take a serious physical and emotional toll on the victims.
