Burn injuries can be one of the most traumatizing personal injuries. These types of burns are not only sudden and unexpected, but they can also be the most painful and in some cases very severe with long-term consequences. Burns can result in several instances:
- Defective products or devices powered by batteries
- Chemical burns
- Open fires
- Electrical burns or electrocution from open wires
- Worksite or workplace hazards
- Construction sites
- Industrial plants
- Car accidents
- Gasoline ignition
Burn injuries need immediate attention and these burns can be especially traumatizing because of the excruciating, immediate pain from skin nerves as well as the difficulty to move the patient due to the open, exposed wounds of the skin.
Burns can cause damage both physically and psychologically. Recovery from a burn injury may include several reconstructive surgeries to prevent scarring and restore minimal to extensive nerve damage if the burn has penetrated the deeper layers of the skin. But victims may be still be left with long-term effects of visible scarring of features, permanent nerve damage and even long-term disability which may have detrimental psychological effects.
While each case may vary, a victim might be left with months or even years of recovery due to surgeries, medical bills, physical therapy, and even counseling.
