Burns are one of the most common household injuries in the United States. They are characterized by severe skin damage that cause the affected skin cells to die.
Serious burns require immediate emergency medical care—however, most people can recover from burns without serious health consequences.
There are generally three types of burns: first-degree, second-degree, and third-degree.
Each type of burn is based on the severity of damage to the skin, with first being least severe and fourth being most severe. For instance, first-degree burns usually cause red, non-blistered skin. Fourth-degree burns can cause damage beyond the skin, into tendons and bones.
Sometimes burns can be caused by workplace conditions, faulty stoves, and negligence of another party. If you’ve suffered a burn in Shrewsbury and you need the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney, call our offices today at 888-355-4752.
