Degrees of Burns
If you have sustained burn injuries, your burns will most likely fall under one of 3 degrees. There is, however, an exception for severe burns that result in amputation, which are often classified as fourth degree burns. The treatment and recovery time for your burn injury will depend on the degree of burn you have suffered from.
The 3 main degrees of burns include:
- First-degree burns – This type of burn only affects the epidermis layer of skin, and it usually heals within 5 to 10 days. Because first degree burns are most often caused by overexposure to the sun, those who spend a lot of time outdoors are prone to this level of burn. Experiencing sunburn repeatedly can increase a person’s risk of skin cancer.
- Second-degree burns – This more severe burn affects either the superficial dermis or the reticular dermis and usually results in blistering. Recovery time for second degree burns can be anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks.
- Third-degree burns – A third-degree burn penetrates through the entire dermis and usually has a white or brown color. Minimum recovery time for third-degree burns is at least a few months, although some people may never fully recover.
Frish Law Group, APLC represents clients who have sustained burns as the result of defective products, workplace injuries, and another person’s negligence. Some of the most common causes of these type of injuries include auto collisions, car fires, electrical burns, gas explosions, chemical burns, house fires, and radiation exposure.

How Our Attorneys Can Help
One of the biggest mistakes that burn injury victims make is thinking that they can represent themselves in a personal injury claim. Doing so often results in obtaining a settlement that is far less than they deserve. Insurance companies are in the business of offering as little money as possible, and often engage in deceptive tactics to avoid paying what they owe.
Our Woodland Hills burn injury attorneys can ensure that this doesn’t happen to you. We can negotiate with the insurance company for the amount that you deserve. If they are unwilling to provide fair and full compensation, we can file a lawsuit against them to pursue an award in court.
