Burn injuries can not only leave you with permanent scars, but they may also limit your movement and require months or years of physical therapy; some people never fully recover from a burn injury. This, as you can imagine, is an expensive and painful ordeal. Recovery and rehabilitation may take a significant amount of time, leaving you without the means to earn the money you and your family require to survive.
If someone’s negligence caused your burn injury, you deserve to receive full compensation for all possible damages, including:
- Pain, suffering, and emotional distress
- Medical treatment and rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages and loss of future earning potential
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of quality/enjoyment of life
Different Types of Burns
Burn injuries can happen anywhere, at any time, in automobile accidents, at the workplace, or because of medical malpractice. These burn injuries can be broken down into a few different classifications:
- Thermal burns
- Electrical burns
- Chemical burns
- Cold burns
Measuring the Extent of Burn Injuries
The extent of your burn injuries is measured by degrees. Each degree of a burn injury can have longer-lasting consequences than the one below. For that reason, the medical expenses related to fourth-degree burns are likely to be much higher than first-degree burns.
First-degree burns are mainly superficial. They result in pain and redness at the spot of the burn, but they typically heal on their own within days.
Second-degree burns typically damage multiple layers of your skin. As a result, these burns cause excruciating pain. In addition to pain and redness, these burns could also cause blisters.
A third-degree burn is a severe injury. These burns damage every layer of the skin and can leave the skin charred. In some cases, these burns are so severe, they destroy the nerve endings beneath the skin as well.
These burns, the most severe burn injury, are often fatal due to the extensive damage they cause. For example, a fourth-degree burn destroys every layer of the skin and often damages the muscle or bone underneath.

You Face a Deadline to File a Burn Injury Lawsuit
You do not have unlimited time to pursue a lawsuit for your burn injury damages. Indeed, every injury lawsuit filed in Baltimore must comply with the statute of limitations. This statute serves as a legal deadline, and failing to comply with it could bring your case to a sudden end.
Most of the time, the statutory period set by Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101 is three years. The three-year period begins counting down the day your injury occurs.
If you file your lawsuit after the deadline expires, the judge will likely dismiss your case permanently.
However, there are other reasons why you don’t want to wait until the last minute to pursue your case. For example, every day you wait is one less day your attorney has to prepare. In addition, over time, witnesses to how you sustained your burn injuries could forget what happened. Physical and video evidence could also be lost. Thus, the sooner you speak with an attorney about your burn injury case, the more likely you will recover compensation for your injuries.
