The American Burn Association estimates roughly 450,000 people are hospitalized each year due to burn injuries.

Sometimes burns can be extremely mild, while others can be catastrophic and life-altering, and result in death.  Many times a burn is simply the result of an accident.  Other times burns arise from a person, or company’s negligence.

Burns are typically classified into three primary categories:

First Degree Burns

These are the least serious burns.  These burns result from damage to the epidermis layer of the skin and result in reddening but no blisters.  They typically resolve quickly without any permanent damage.

Second Degree Burns

These are sometimes known as partial thickness burns. These burns are more serious than first degree burns.  They result in damage to the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Frequently blisters, reddening of the skin and serious pain and swelling occur with this class of burns.

Third Degree Burns

Third degree burns are the most serious and damaging type of burns.  They cause damage to all layers of the skin. When these burns happen nerve damage occurs and the burned skin becomes numb. The skin will not regrow with these types of burns.  Grafting of the skin is likely needed.

Common Causes Of Burns

These injuries can result from explosions, chemical spills, faulty equipment, as well as from many other possible  scenarios.  Massachusetts workers compensation claims frequently stem from burn injuries that happen on the job.
