3rd Degree Burn Injury Lawsuits

Any type of burn injury can be painful, but a third-degree burn can be devastating and cause a life-long impact on the victim. Third-degree burns are also referred to as full thickness burns, referring to a burn that impacts all three layers of the skin (dermis, epidermis and subcutaneous). When a defective product causes a third-degree burn injury, the victim may be eligible to make a burn injury claim to receive compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering.

Often, third-degree burns occur in accidents or events where the skin is exposed to extensive heat, or the exposure to heat is prolonged. Any type of fire can cause a third-degree burn as can exposure to electricity, chemicals or an explosion. In product liability cases, a defective product causes the burn risk. Exploding propane tanks, poorly wired appliances, chemical leaks, defective circuit breakers and other products have been the culprits in product liability lawsuits.

Damages from Third-Degree Burns

Even a small third-degree burn can require extensive medical treatment and have a long-term impact on the injured person’s life. All burns will leave some scar tissue, which can be traumatic for the patient, especially if the burn is on a noticeable area like the face, hands, arms or chest. This can impact self-confidence and emotional well-being for the rest of their life. If skin grafts are needed, this can be a long and painful procedure, as well as expensive. Other impacts of third-degree burns include nerve and muscle damage that can cause disability, risk of infections and some victims suffer from post-traumatic stress from their burn event.

Third-degree burns from a defective product can have a life-altering effect. For those suffering from a third-degree burn caused by a poorly designed or manufactured product, compensation may be available for your injury.
