Many factors are used to determine the severity of a burn injury including your age, your gender, the size and depth of burn, and location of the burn.
Burn injuries are classified by degree:
First Degree Burns
First-degree burns involve minimal tissue damage and involve the skin surface
Second Degree Burns
Second-degree burns affect both the skin surface and the layer lying underneath the surface of skin causing redness, pain, swelling and blisters
Third Degree Burns
Third-degree burns cause charring of skin and usually result in extensive scarring.
Burn injuries can occur from defective products, auto accidents, or negligence by a third party.
