Determining the Severity of a Burn
The brutality of your burn injury may be apparent to you but not the responsible party and their insurance providers. These parties may ask for more proof or information at a time when you least expect it. Since the effects of your injury can range from minor yet painful skin damage to more serious health conditions, it is of great help if you understand the severity of your burn injury in medical terms.
- First-degree burn: This class of injuries will leave your skin reddened for a given duration and cause irritation, especially when exposed to bright light or heat. Water or ice is a common cure for first-degree burns, also known as minor burns.
- Second-degree burn: After suffering a second-degree burn, your skin will be either white or red and dry to the touch. Even with proper treatment, it can lead to permanent disfigurement.
- Third-degree burn: If you do not seek emergency medical attention, this type of injury can prove to be life-threatening. The skin becomes blackened and discolored permanently, and some tissues are damaged. Skin grafts, amputation, or surgery may be necessary if the damage is widespread.
- Fourth-degree burn: In this type of burn, severe injury is guaranteed. The affected body part is highly likely to be lost. The victim requires rehabilitation programs in addition to continuous medical checkup to restore some of the functions of some body parts.
- Fifth-and Sixth-degree burns: Intense heat often damage internal body organs, and so victims under this category cannot survive.
