A common yet very serious injury that can happen almost anywhere including at home, work, school and in all types of automobile accidents are burns. They can range from first degree burns (least amount of damage) to fourth degree burns (deep tissue burns) and all can have long lasting and fatal injuries to the victim. The age and overall health of the victim has a lot to do with the outcome of their burn injury. For instance, babies, the elderly and diabetics can suffer far more from even a mild burn injury than a healthy adult. Reasons for this have to do with having a fully developed and functioning immune system, no circulatory system issues and skin thickness. If you have suffered any type of burn injury you may be eligible for benefits, medical care and financial compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering and other economic losses.
