Minnesota First Degree Burn Injury Attorney

Common causes of a first degree burn include sun damage, chemicals or contact with dry or moist heat.  First degree burns are classified as the least serious of burns because it will present the least amount of tissue damage.

A first degree burn does not blister or leave a scar, but rather look red, moist, sometimes swollen and itchy, and can be tender when touched.

First degree burns can be treated at home by holding the burn under cold, running water for 10 minutes.  Do not use ice on the burn because it can damage the skin.  Sterile gauze can be worn loosely to allow airflow but avoid using adhesive bandages.  Also avoid using butter or oils as they will cause extreme pain and intensify the burn.  Anti-inflammatory, over the counter medication can be taken to alleviate pain and inflammation.

If the burn is from a chemical, it is important to remove the clothing and put cool water over the burn for 20-30 minutes.  Be sure to read the chemical container for additional instructions because different chemicals will have different effects on the skin.

If you have sustained a second or third degree burn due to another person’s negligence, it is important that you contact an experienced burn injury attorney to discuss the complexities of your case.
