Types of Burn Injuries
Every burn is different depending on the unique cause and the severity. To break down the types of burns you can use these four categories; thermal, chemical, electrical and radiological. There are many other ways to categorize types of burns, but these four are defined in the following ways:
- Thermal burns (heat burns): this type of burn is either caused by fire, steam or any type of hot object or liquid.
- Burns will vary by degree depending on the cause
- Chemical burns: this type of burn is caused by some sort of acid or alkali substance
- The chemical agent needs to be inactivated to stop the damage
- Electrical burns: this type of burn is caused by an AC or DC electrical current, similar to a thermal burn but from a very high heat
- Injury spreads throughout the body, severity cannot be determined by the external injury
- Radiological burns: this type of burn is caused by radiation, either alpha, beta or gamma
- May require decontamination to help stop the injury
There are many other categories within these categories such as friction burns or cold temperature burns. Feel free to contact our firm to discuss your unique burn injury and how we could help.
Burn Injury Degrees
Each type of burn will have different effects and different degrees of severity. The general separation of degrees include first-degree, second-degree and third-degree burns. The degree is used to determine how deep the damage is and the higher the degree, the worse the injury is. A first degree burn is considered to be superficial. This means that there is only damage to the surface of the skin, the epidermis, but it is still intact. A second degree burn means that the burn damaged the epidermis and made its way through to the dermis, which is the second layer of skin. These types of burns are also termed 'partial-thickness burns.' There is usually a loss of skin function with this degree of burn and they are thought to be the most painful. The nerves are not fully damaged so the victim is generally able to feel the majority of the pain. Third degree burns are the most severe. This type of burn means that both the epidermis and dermis have been destroyed and it could have extended further. Third degree as well as second degree burns have a problem with fluid and heat loss and a susceptibility to infection. This degree of burn is also termed a 'full-thickness burn' and it kills the nerves which takes some of the pain out of the equation.

If I could give Ernie Trichler 10 stars, I definitely would - 5 stars is not enough. Ernie aided myself & family with my mother’s wrongful death case. He didn’t care that she was 100 years old. Ernie is professional, trustworthy, and most importantly, he knows the law. He answered his phone every time I called with questions and he always had the answers. I interviewed at least 4 different attorneys and there was no doubt that Ernie is above and beyond them all. If you are in need of an attorney within the realm of his expertise, I highly recommend Ernie Trichler.- Sandy L

I went through a very traumatic accident that left me hospitalized for a month and in recovery for much longer. It was such a difficult and expensive process that I never thought I'd ever recover from. Jennifer Mandelbaum took care of me from day 1 making sure I never had to stress which was so amazing for me as to this day suffer from terrible PTSD. She not only made sure that I was taken care of but also that I was treated like family and she walked me through every step, ensuring that I was properly represented and didn't have to struggle with my bills for all my specialized doctors and care. I couldn't recommend a better firm to take care of you in your moment of need!- Nicole Clark

I highly recommend Jennifer Mandelbaum. Hopefully I will not need her in the future but if I do I she's the attorney I'll call. Thank you so much for such outstanding job Jennifer!- Sandy Shores
Ernie was the epitome of a silver lining in an unfortunate situation. Having never dealt with an attorney in any sort of professional capacity, I was quite intimidated by the prospect. However, Ernie quickly put my mind at ease. Throughout the entirety of my case, he kept in constant contact with me. He updated me on new developments every step of the way and was more than willing to decipher all legal jargon that came my way. He worked tirelessly to yield the best possible results from my case. From the day of our first interaction, I knew the case was in capable hands.- Cullen Murphy
I have to say that I am very pleased with the Trichler Law Center. Ernie handled my case in a very timely and professional manner. He kept me informed every step of way, I was very IMPRESSED in the way he worked with the defense attorneys to get me a very satisfactory settlement. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for a job well done!!- Donnie
