When to File a Burn Injury Claim

Generally, you have three years from the date of your burn injury to file a claim in Massachusetts. Though this may seem like an extended period, it is vital that you take action early on, as several factors can impact the ability to successfully pursue your case. If your burn injury was caused by another party’s negligence or wrongful conduct, you may be entitled to compensation for damage.

Many types of burn injuries are severe and require extensive medical care and treatments, such as surgery or skin grafts. These medical costs can add up quickly over time, so it is recommended that you get legal help as soon as possible to pursue a claim for these costs. Furthermore, Massachusetts law requires specific procedures to be followed when filing personal injury claims involving cases such as burn injuries. Getting our help early on can be critical for protecting your rights.

How Can I Tell if My Burns Are Severe Enough to Pursue a Claim?

When it comes to burn injuries, the severity of the burn can determine whether you have a case. Generally, burn injuries that are severe enough to be considered in a court of law must cause disfigurement and scarring, physical pain and suffering, and mental and emotional distress.

Burn injuries are classified in degrees, the severity of which will likely influence your claim: 

  • First-degree burns affect the skin’s outer layer, causing redness, minor swelling, and temporary pain. 
  • Second-degree burns damage both the skin’s outer and inner layers. Symptoms include redness, blistering, swelling, and significant pain lasting over three days. 
  • Third-degree burn injuries often cause permanent scarring, disability, disfigurement, and nerve damage due to the destruction of multiple layers of skin and underlying tissues. In some cases, third-degree burn victims must undergo extensive surgeries such as skin grafts or tissue transplants to repair the damage caused by their burns.
