Need a Burn Injury Lawyer in Tampa?
A burn injury is any injury that is caused by exposure to heat, cold, chemicals, light, electricity, or radiation. Burn injuries range in severity from minor injuries that quickly heal to extremely serious injuries that leave permanent and painful scarring. Usually, the severity of the injury is determined by the type of burn.
From first degree to fourth degree, there are many levels of pain and severity from which a burn victim can suffer. First degree burn injuries, and sometimes second degree burn injuries, will heal with time and a little care. However, third and fourth degree burn injuries are very dangerous, and can cause a great deal of physical and mental harm to those who suffer from such a severe burn level. Victims of third and fourth degree burns are likely to develop a multitude of painful side effects and symptoms as soon as they sustain their injuries.
