Call KP Law for Fierce Advocacy
Almost half a million people in the United States have suffered burn injuries that require medical treatment, according to the American Burn Association. In the United States, the most common causes of burns are fire, scalds from hot liquids, hot objects, electricity (from a defective product or a manufacturer’s failure to follow proper procedures), and chemicals. Burn victims can endure disfiguring and painful injuries. Burn injuries may require hospitalization, multiple surgeries, rehabilitation, and long-term care.
Common Causes of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries are typically caused by accidents at home or in the workplace. From faulty kitchen products to chemical exposure on a construction site, serious burns can happen at any time and cause painful injuries.
Burn injuries can be caused by:
- Chemical burns and inhalation of toxic chemicals
- Electrical burns from faulty electrical outlets and other sources
- Thermal burns from hot irons, boiling water, hot grease, or other heated objects or liquids
- Fires and explosions
Adverse Effects of a Burn Injury
Burns can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement. As a result, burn injury survivors can incur substantial medical expenses that require a lifetime of special care. The emotional toll a burn injury takes can be as devastating as the physical injuries.
The psychological impacts of burn injuries can include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Anxiety disorders
- Sleep disturbances
