Types of Burn Injuries

There are three kinds of burn injuries that our La Mesa legal team can assist you with if you have been hurt in a burnt accident.

  • First Degree Burns (also known as superficial burns): this is when a burn injury is limited to the top layer of skin, causing a red and dry damaged area but no blisters appear.
  • Second Degree Burns (also known as partial thickness burns): these kinds of burn injuries afflict not only the top layer of skin, but the second layer called the dermis. Blisters accompany the red and dry burn area.
  • Third Degree Burns (also known as full thickness burns): the top two layers of skin are damaged, but so are bones, tissue, muscles, and nerves below the surface of the dermis. Pain is rarely felt because of nerve damage, resulting in a charred and tough burn area.
