Can You Sue for First-Degree Burns?
Burn injuries are primarily categorized into three degrees:
- First: When a burn reddens the skin but causes no lasting or serious injury, it is a first-degree burn. No medical attention is needed for most burns of this severity.
- Second: A burn that damages the skin and underlying tissues is a second-degree burn. Medical attention should be provided as soon as possible to limit the burn’s potential to cause permanent injury.
- Third: If a burn destroys deep tissues, then it is a third-degree burn, which needs immediate medical attention. Third-degree burns can be fatal if not treated properly.
- Fourth or higher: Fourth-degree burns and worse are not considered survivable due to the immediate and widespread harm caused by the burn.
The first thing you need to do after suffering a burn injury is seek proper medical attention, which might be a cold and wet cloth if you suffer a first-degree burn. If your burn injury causes severe pain or immediate debilitation, then you should go to urgent care or call 911. Some third-degree burns do not cause immediate pain because they destroy affected nerves entirely, so your burn could be worse than you first realize. As a result, you should always seek immediate medical attention upon suffering a burn.
For the most part, burn injury claims would only involve third-degree or worse burns because those burns have the most potential to cause severe injury and trigger steep medical bills. Some second-degree burns can justify a burn injury lawsuit if there are treatment complications or if the victim experienced lasting trauma from the incident that caused the burn. It would be unusual to sue for a first-degree burn because these injuries that can usually be solved with first aid and minimal medical bills, which makes significant recovery difficult.
