Each year, more than 1 million burn injuries receive medical attention in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those injuries, roughly 50,000 require hospitalization and 4,500 prove to be fatal. Although many burn injuries heal quickly and require minimal attention, severe burns may result in painful, permanent harm. If you or someone you love suffered a burn injury due to someone else’s mistake or negligence, make sure you know your legal options.

Types of Burn Injuries
Depending on the type of burn you receive and the severity of the injury, burns can result in nerve damage, physical disfigurement, and even amputation. There are plenty of different ways burn injuries can occur, but the classification of burn injuries depends largely on what actually did the burning. If you were harmed by a hot frying pan, for example, you suffered a contact burn, because you were burned by something hot. A chemical burn, on the other hand, occurs when dangerous chemicals, usually acids, come in contact with the skin, causing severe skin irritation.
There are several different types of burn injuries, including:
- Chemical burns
- Contact burns
- Electrical burns
- Open flame burns
- Scalding burns
- Steam burns
