The American Burn Association reports that 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention in the US each year. A burn causes tissue damage when heat or chemicals come in contact with the skin. Burn injuries can cause not only skin damage, but can also cause serious damage to muscles, nerve endings, and other tissues under the skin. This sort of serious injury can cause mobility problems.
There are many causes for burn injuries:
- Building Fires
- Defective Candles, Heaters, and Fireplaces
- Lighters & Matches
- Automobile Accidents
- Flammable Liquid Fuel Explosions
- Scalding Water
- Electrical Accidents
- Industrial Accidents
- Gasoline Spills
No matter what a burn injury is caused by, though, this sort of personal injury can cause serious pain and suffering. Burn victims may suffer serious trauma and psychological pain. They may dread leaving the house or resuming normal social and work duties. Tissue pain resulting from burns can plague victims for months, and even years. Lengthy rehabilitation may be needed to regain lost mobility. Unfortunately, burn victims often face an uphill battle when seeking assistance. Many insurance companies view reconstruction treatments as purely cosmetic and may offer little or no assistance for this sort of surgery, even though it may be needed for victims to recover physically and emotionally from their injuries.
