Thousands and thousands of people suffer burn injuries every year in the United States.
Burn injuries are among the most traumatic and extremely serious personal injuries a person can suffer. In addition to the initial pain, which can be excruciating and intense, they sometimes require extensive, uncomfortable treatments such as skin grafts. They can leave victims with scars and loss of sensation as well. Even worse – they can lead to death.
A burn injury can range from mild to severe and may be one of the most painful and devastating injuries a person can sustain. Burn injuries not only result in physical pain, but also emotional and psychological pain as well. They can also cause heavy financial burdens due to medical attention that you will need, and the time you may have to take off from your job.
Common causes of burn injuries include:
- Vehicle accidents
- Portable electric space heaters
- Gas explosions
- Oil spills
- Electrical problems
- Defective smoke detectors
- Unsafe working conditions
- Smoking accident
- Chemical burns
Severe burn injuries can require weeks, months or even years of painful recovery and intense therapy, including skin grafts or reconstructive surgeries. Because of the disfiguration that can result, the emotional scars from burns can last a lifetime.
Suffering a serious burn because of another person’s carelessness or incompetence can be an emotionally difficult experience. It is not fair to have to go through so much pain because of someone else’s mistake.
