Burn Injuries

Types of Burns from Catastrophic Accidents

One of the most tragic results of catastrophic accidents is when your injuries don't go away. This can be true in the case of burn injuries. Burns of any kind have the potential to leave serious scars and even require skin grafts and extensive reconstructive surgery. There are many ways a person can sustain this type of injury.

The main causes are listed below:

  • Electric Burns- Something as simple as a loose wire is a serious threat to a person's safety. When an electrical current passes through a person it can cause burn injuries, but more seriously, internal injury.
  • Chemical Burns- These types of injuries are common for people who work around toxic chemicals on a daily basis, but no one is immune. Certain chemicals have the potential to burn skin.
  • Hot Liquid- This is common in product liability cases, but can happen anywhere hot water is present. Scalding water has the potential to cause as serious burns as fire can.
  • Fire/Explosion- Probably the most common way people sustain burn injuries are in fires. If a fire or explosion affected you in your accident, you may have received serious scarring and damage.

These types of burns can range in degree of seriousness from first to fourth. A first degree burn is the mildest while a fourth degree burn can even lead to a fatality. Burns are classified by how deep the burn affects the skin. The deeper the burn, the more lasting the damage will be. If you sustained a burn injury, we encourage you to seek professional legal help.
