Burn Injuries Happen More Than You Think
According to the CDC, over one million burn injuries require medical attention each year in the United States. Of those cases approximately:
- 50,000 require hospitalization
- 20,000 have major burns involving at least 25 percent of their total body surface
- 4,500 result in death
Common Burn Injury Causes
A variety of incidents have the potential to cause burn injuries including:
- Auto accidents
- Apartment fires
- Defective or negligently installed heating units/furnaces
- Defective or negligently installed kitchen appliances
- Accidents involving chemicals
- Gas leaks
- Work-related accidents
- Defective consumer products
Burn injuries can appear in a range of severity that includes:
- First-degree burns
- Second-degree burns
- Third-degree burns
- Fourth-degree burns
First-degree burns damage the outermost layer of skin and may lead to pain, redness, and discomfort. The damage tends to be temporary.
Second-degree burns extend below the outermost layer of skin and can cause damage to tendons and muscles. Such burns typically require medical treatment and can take a few months to heal.
Third-degree burns extend through all layers of skin and can destroy nerves, leaving permanent scarring and disfigurement. Such burns require prompt medical treatment and can require long-term medical care.
Fourth-degree burns are the most severe, penetrating to a person’s muscles and bone. It may lead to amputation if the damage is significant enough.

The Clock Is Ticking
Our burn injury attorneys can examine the facts and circumstances relevant to your case to determine which statutes of limitations apply. We’ll take the required actions to preserve your rights.
All types of legal claims are subject to “statutes of limitations” or legal time deadlines. If you miss this deadline, you won’t be able to recover compensation. Time deadlines could be longer or shorter depending on the specific facts of your case, and many insurance policies have notification deadlines as well. Your best option is to contact a Montlick lawyer as soon as possible to find out your options.
In addition to legal and insurance deadlines, witnesses will forget what happened as more time passes and important evidence can disappear, increasing the importance of acting swiftly.
