What to Know about Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are “measured” by their type. In fact, you’ve likely heard of it: first-degree, second-degree, and third-degree burns. All three are painful, but a first-degree burn is the least severe (although it could still cover a lot of the body, depending on what happened, and cause a lot of pain).

  • A first-degree burn affects only the top layer of skin. This is your epidermis. It causes redness and pain.
  • A second-degree burn affects the top layer and the second layer of skin. This is the epidermis and the dermis. In addition to redness and pain, there may also be blisters and scarring.
  • A third-degree burn goes down into the fat beneath the skin. Burned skin may appear black, brown or white. It could even appear leathery. It can destroy nerves in the skin that is affected, too.

Is a Mesa Burn Injury Lawyer Necessary?

Burn injuries, when they are caused by another person’s negligence, can be tricky to prove on your own. As Mesa burn injury attorneys, our job is to help you through the claims process, investigate what happened, document your injuries, and preserve your evidence so that your claim can be proven.

Those things are all crucial because if, for example, you drove an electric or hybrid vehicle and someone was speeding and ran a light and hit your car, that may cause a fire because of the battery. Their defense may be that the battery caused your burns, they didn’t. The reality is that you’re much better off with an attorney on your side that knows the law and how to get you the compensation that you need and deserve for your injuries.

Getting burned on the job could result in an employer who wants to fight your claim, too. Having a Mesa personal injury lawyer from Hastings & Hastings on your side can mean that you get the compensation you need to take care of your needs.
