Different Burn Dangers

Burn injuries are some of the most troubling wounds that a person can suffer. Beyond the intense physical pain that they cause, treatment for serious burns may require numerous skin grafts or other painful remedies. Perhaps more upsetting than this is the adverse effect that disfiguring scars can have on one’s self-esteem.

Withdrawal from social interactions, declining job performance, and strain on interpersonal relationships are all potential consequences. Despite the fact that we are educated from an early age about the potential harm associated with mishandling fire, rarely are people well-informed about other sources of burn dangers.

If you are a burn victim whose injuries are attributable to the negligence of a property owner, corporate enterprise, or another party, then you are likely entitled to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. A successful legal action may result in the awarding of damages for medical bills, lost wages, property loss, and other considerations as appropriate.

Potential Causes of Burn Injuries

There are a number of different kinds of burn injuries in addition to those caused by contact with flame. Touching a hot surface such as a pot on the surface of a stove, for example, can cause severe burns; coming into contact with some chemical agents can result in extremely painful chemical burns; being shocked by an electrical current can cause deep tissue burns; hot water and steam may cause scalding; and exposure to radiating heat, including the sun, can result in radiation burns. Other potential causes of burn injuries include:

  • Defective hot water heaters
  • Defective kitchen appliances
  • Property owner negligence
  • Improperly stored chemicals
