Common Causes of Burn Injuries
Any accident that exposes a person to fire, electricity, or extreme heat can result in burn injuries. Burns are catastrophic injuries that can be excruciatingly painful, requiring numerous skin grafts and corrective surgeries to be treated.
In most cases, burns can result in permanent scarring and disfigurement, causing lifelong debilitation and a reduced quality of life. In addition to the physical effects, accidents resulting in burns can cause intense psychological distress and require a person to undergo extensive therapy.
Burn injuries can result from the following:
- Building fires
- Construction accidents
- Electrical shocks
- Auto collisions
- Natural gas explosions
- Caustic chemical exposure
- Scalding hot liquids
Burns are classified into different subcategories depending on their severity. While first-degree burns cause mild discomfort and a reddening of the skin, third-degree burns involve severe tissue damage and can cause permanent nerve damage. In most cases, burn injuries are the result of another party’s negligent actions.
