There are numerous circumstances where burn injuries may result. Fires can be caused during auto accidents, from defective equipment, from electrical fires due to inadequate safety measures, or scalding incidents where inadequate warning messages or safety procedures are used.
Burn injuries are extremely painful. The melted skin and severe injury to nerves can traumatize a person for life. Even if you are able to survive the burn injuries, they can leave unsightly scars on your face and other parts of the body. They often require skin graft surgeries, which involves the removal of skin from another portion of the injured victim’s body and surgical implantation onto the area where the burns occurred. Although this helps the burns heal, it can be extremely painful. The mental anguish and suffering is another painful consequence. You can lose your self-concept and confidence. Your personal and social life can be directly and significantly affected.
