Burn injuries arise in a variety of circumstances. Damaging burns can result from, among other causes, auto and truck road accidents, fires in residential homes and commercial buildings, flammable clothing and flammable liquids, industrial explosions, hazardous chemicals and products, found in both the home and at work, faulty electrical wiring or from damaged electrical cords or high voltage wires, inhalation from smoke or steam, and radiation used in medical treatment, tanning beds and other purposes. The severity of the injuries can range from mild discomfort to death.
Burn injuries impact much more than just the skin. Depending on the severity of the injury, burn injuries can impact the nerves, muscles, tissue, blood vessels, vital organs and bone.
