Treatment and Recovery from a Burn Injury

Burn injuries are classified into one of three degrees based on the severity of the injury. The three degrees of burn injury include:

Treatment of a burn injury depends on its severity. First-degree burns typically heal on their own, although applying aloe vera or burn cream can help relieve pain. 

Second-degree burns also heal on their own over time, although second-degree burns should also be wrapped in gauze or other wound dressings. A doctor may prescribe antibiotic creams to prevent infection at the burn site.

Third-degree burns always require immediate emergency medical care along with follow-up care at a specialized burn care center. For large third-degree burns, a skin graft from healthy skin elsewhere on your body will likely be needed to replace destroyed tissue. Victims of extensive burns over large parts of their body may also need breathing assistance or feeding tubes until the affected areas heal.

Once a third-degree burn has healed, an injured victim may require physical therapy to rebuild flexibility over affected areas, as scar tissue will contract and pull on healthy tissue, restricting the range of motion. Injury victims may also choose to undergo plastic surgery to improve the appearance of scars to improve flexibility over joints with scar tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions about Burn Injury in New Jersey

Can I sue for a burn injury?

You may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim for a burn injury that occurred when someone else failed to act in accordance with their duty of care to you, or if they disregarded the substantial risk that their actions would result in you suffering a burn injury. In addition, to file a lawsuit you must have suffered some form of loss that you can be financially compensated for.

How much compensation can I claim for a burn injury?

The amount of compensation that you can claim in a burn injury case will depend on the losses that you have suffered because of your injury. A burn injury claim can provide you with financial compensation for things like medical bills and expenses, costs of long-term care for permanent disabilities or medical conditions that result from your burn injury, ongoing and future loss of income if you cannot work due to your injury, physical pain, and emotional trauma and distress from disability, disfigurement, or reduced life expectancy.
