Chicago Burn Injuries
A severe burn injury can leave the victim dealing with overwhelming medical expenses, permanent scarring, and missed wages.
If someone else’s negligence caused your burn injuries, you have the right to seek financial compensation to cover lost wages, medical costs, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.

Get the Facts about Burn Injuries
According to the American Burn Association, approximately 450,000 people receive treatment for serious burn injuries in the United States every year.
Many of these injuries are treated at specialized burn treatment centers. Burn injuries and fires are responsible for over 3,400 deaths across the nation every year, and more than 40,000 people are hospitalized for severe burns. Approximately 30,000 of these victims are treated at hospital burn centers due to the severity of their injuries.
There are four different categories of burn injuries:
First Degree Burns
These burns affect the outermost layer of skin (the epidermis). The affected skin will usually be red and very painful, but the burn should heal within a week.
Second Degree Burns
These burns affect the second layer of skin (the dermis). The affected skin will usually be moist and appear whitish in color. These burns heal within a few weeks.
Third Degree Burns
These burns extend down to the subcutaneous tissue. The affected skin may appear charred or leathery, and often require skin grafting procedures.
Fourth Degree Burns
These burns can extend all the way down to the muscle and bone, destroying all other layers of tissue and fat. They may also destroy nerves.
