Burn Injury Accidents
Burn injuries can occur in different kinds of accidents, such as car accidents, motorcycle collisions, truck crashes, construction accidents, electrical accidents, industrial accidents, chemical accidents, boating accidents, accidents involving fire or radiation, and accidents caused by exploding or defective appliances (stoves, furnaces, ovens, heaters, etc.).
When a person has a burn injury, not only are layers of the skin affected, but a burn injury can cause deadly infections and damage the victim’s internal organs, nerves, bones, muscles, blood vessels, and respiratory system. Recovering from a burn injury can be physically, mentally, and emotionally traumatic.
Recovery from Burn Injuries
Recovery from a burn injury may require an extended stay at a burn unit, multiple surgeries, skin grafts, reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery, physical therapy, psychological treatment, hospital visits, or other specialized care. Treatment for a burn injury will depend on the severity of the burn injury and the age and medical condition of the victim.
The recovery process could take months if not years. Even with the proper care, it is not uncommon for an injury victim with serious burn injuries to be scarred or permanently disfigured for life.
