Burn Injury Lawyer in Tucson, Arizona

Causes and Effects of Burn Injuries

There are several possible causes for suffering a burn injury: 

  • Flames
  • Steam
  • Heated liquids
  • Other hot objects 
  • The sun's rays
  • Tanning booths, 
  • X-rays or as a result of radiation therapy
  • Frostbite
  • Electrical burns from exposed wire
  • Lightning
  • Swimming pool chemical burns
  • Household chemicals
  • Even some foods


Burn injuries can cause any of the damaging effects to happen:

1st degree burns

Damages the topmost layer of the skin and will usually require minor treatment at home. 

2nd degree burns

Damages the underlying layer found directly beneath the skin. They cause blisters and an extreme amount of pain. 

3rd degree burns

Go even deeper below the skin's surface and may lead to nerve damage, infection or the need for skin-grafts to repair permanent deterioration of the skin.

4th degree burns

Need urgent medical attention to help prevent further injury, avoid amputation, and attempt to repair any permanent damage or disfigurement.


The effects of burn injuries are not only physical, but may be psychological as well. You may have grounds to file a lawsuit or claim to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.
