Product manufacturers have an obligation to only make and sell products that are safe for regular use. But all sorts of products hit the market each year that can be highly dangerous and even cause burn injuries. For example, in recent years, many vape pens have become notorious for overheating due to battery defects, up to the point of exploding in sparks and fire.

Burn Injury Severities
A burn injury can be evaluated in degrees. The worse the burn, the higher the degree. This definition is important in a burn injury claim because it will be simpler to justify a large compensation amount if you have suffered a burn of a higher degree.
Burn injury degrees are categorized as:
- First: A first-degree burn is mild and can be readily treated at home. It will cause mild pain but should not be a serious concern. A lawsuit will likely not be justified.
- Second: A second-degree burn is a moderate injury that requires medical attention at an urgent care center at least. If untreated, it can become infected or cause permanent disability.
- Third: A third-degree burn is a life-threatening injury that must be treated with emergency medical care. Most burn injury claims
- Fourth and worse: Most fourth, fifth, and sixth-degree burns are quickly or immediately fatal. A wrongful death claim could be filed by the victim’s family.
