Types of Burn Injuries

Burns can result from a number of different types of accidents, including auto accidents, accidents with commercial trucks, workplace accidents, accidents on construction sites and at industrial plants, and more. While mild burns to the skin’s surface may heal fairly quickly and without complication, deeper burns affecting the tissues and muscles beneath the skin can be extremely painful, may require surgery, and can take a long time to heal.

A burn injury can fall into the following categories:

  • Thermal burns from contact with flames or superheated items
  • Scalds from superheated water or steam
  • Chemical burns from contact with corrosive substances
  • Inhalation burns from breathing in hot steam or chemical fumes
  • Electrical burns from exposure to electricity

Sometimes, burns happen through no fault of the victim. For example, if a person suffers a chemical burn from a household product that does not contain any warnings of the hazard, the manufacturer of the product may be to blame. A car accident victim who suffers burns in their vehicle after a collision may take action against the person who caused their accident. Because burn injuries can have such far-reaching consequences, including expensive medical bills, rehabilitative care, scarring and disfigurement, pain, and post-traumatic consequences, it is important for victims to involve a qualified attorney who knows how to maximize the value of their case.
