There are many types of burns, including heat, cold, electric, chemical, radiation, and friction. Burns may occur as a result of car accidents, construction accidents, or negligence. There are four different types of burns that are categorized by severity. First degree burns are burns of the first layer of skin. Second degree burns injure the first and second layers of skin. Third degree burns injure all layers of the skin, as well as tissues underneath the skin. Fourth degree burns extend deeper than third degree burns and injure ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and bones. First and mild second degree burns may cause skin discoloration that typically fade as they heal. Second, third, and fourth degree burns typically require intensive therapy, such as skin grafting.
