A burn injury can be devastating and not all that uncommon. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that fire injures at least one person every 31 minutes. Recovery times for burn injuries are extensive, costly, and extremely painful. Most burn injuries occur as a result of domestic fires started by cooking mishaps, but sometimes it’s due to the negligence of another person or company.
Burn injuries and their effects can be permanent. A victim may lose mobility and/or function in parts of their body or need reconstructive surgery, depending on the severity of their burns. As victims deal with the physical pain and permanent effects of burns, they and their loved ones can experience depression, anxiety and hopelessness as they learn to cope with a life affected by catastrophic injuries.
Fire accidents can result in first-degree burns, second-degree burns and third-degree burns, as well as injuries resulting from inhalation of smoke and other toxins. Fire injuries can happen for a variety of reasons; some of the most common causes including: faulty electrical wiring; defective appliances; gas explosions; chemical leaks; improper installation of machinery; and installation of flammable materials in construction.
