Levels of Burn Injuries
The severity of your burn depends on two factors: the depth of the burn and the surface area. In addition, burns that affect the face, groin, or other sensitive areas will result in a higher settlement offer or lawsuit award simply because the pain and suffering, lost earning ability, and scarring are all so much more serious. There are three or four categories of burns, depending on who you talk to. First degree burns only affect the upper layers of skin, while second degree burns injure lower tissues. Third degree burns affect all the layers of the skin. Traditionally, third degree burns are the worst, though a fourth category of burn is sometimes used. Fourth degree burns burn through all the layers of the skin and deeper down, burning tendons, muscle, and even bone, according to Advanced Tissue.
