Pennsylvania Burn Injury Attorney

Helping Catastrophic Burn Injury Victims in Carlisle, Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster & York, PA.

Burn injuries continue to be one of the leading causes of unintentional death and injury in the United States. According to the American Burn Association, 486,000 people were estimated to receive medical treatments for burns in the United States in one year. In 2016 alone, 3,390 people were killed from fires and 85 from vehicle fires.

Recovering from a burn injury is a challenging process that demands both physical and emotional costs. The path toward recovery can be even more difficult when the burn injuries were caused due to someone else’s negligence. At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg, we believe that the parties responsible for burn injuries should be held accountable for their actions.

If you or a loved one have suffered burn injuries due to another person’s or company’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Contact our Harrisburg burn injury attorneys today!

Common Burn Injuries

There are a variety of burn injuries that an individual can experience, including:

  • Chemical Burns: This is a type of dangerous burn that occurs when living tissue is exposed to a destructive chemical or its fumes.
  • Electrical Burns: This is a type of burn that occurs during inadvertent contact with electricity.
  • Flash Burns: This is a type of burn that is caused by sudden intense heat, as from a nuclear explosion.
  • Thermal Burns: This is a type of burn resulting from contacting a heated object. Such as flames, steam, metals, and hot liquids.

The Four Levels of Burn Injuries

The different levels of burn injury severity depend on the amount of exposure to the source of damage. It is vital to identify which of the burn injury levels a victim has experienced to receive the proper treatment.

First-Degree Burns

A first-degree burn requires a small amount of treatment because it causes the least amount of damage to the skin. This burn, also known as a superficial burn, usually causes minor swelling, redness, and minor pain. When a first-degree burn occurs, running cool (not ice cold) water over the area may assist in reducing the pain. Method of treatment may include keeping the wound clean and covering it with a bandage with no adhesive contacting the wound.

Second-Degree Burn

A second-degree burn is more severe because it damages the outer layer of the skin. Signs of this level of burn may include blister and deeply red skin sores. These burns typically require a longer time to repair from the damages. It is advised to seek medical attention for a second-degree burn because it is at a higher risk of infection.

Third & Fourth Degree Burns

Third- and fourth-degree burns are more severe compared to the previous two burn levels. These burns are severe because the burn extends through multiple layers of skin; it reaches bones, muscles, and causes nerve damage. These injuries are incredibly serious and require extensive professional medical attention.

Third and fourth-degree burn symptoms may include:

  • Brown discoloration
  • Charring
  • Conspicuous lack of blisters
  • Smooth, waxy appearance of skin
  • White coloration
