What Is Considered a Burn Injury?
In most cases, a burn injury is considered to be any injury that involves damage to the layers of the skin. The severity of the burn injury will depend on the extent of the damage to the skin and the underlying layers of the skin. In most cases, the severity of the burn injury will be determined by the degree of the damage to the layers of the skin.
The following are considered to be burn injuries:
- First-degree burns: These are the least severe burns, involving damage to only the outer layer of the skin
- Second-degree burns: These involve damage to the outer layer of the skin and the layer underneath
- Third-degree burns: These are the most severe burns and involve damage to all of the layers of the skin, as well as the underlying tissues
In some cases, burns can result in damage to the underlying tissues, muscles, and bones, which can cause more severe injuries. Depending on the extent of the damage, the burn injury victim may suffer from severe scarring, disfigurement, and/or permanent damage to the underlying tissues, muscles, and bones.
