The Causes of Severe Burn Injuries

Although many of us tend to associate burn injuries with fires, there are numerous other causes of burn injuries that do not involve flames.

Below are some of the most common causes of severe burn injuries:

  • Steam or hot liquid
  • Heated glass, metal, or other objects
  • Radiation
  • Toxic chemicals, such as acid or lye
  • Electrical currents

The Side Effects

A minor first-degree burn injury is painful, but heals rather quickly, without any complications. However, severe third-degree burns can result in a whole host of painful complications and often require skin-grafting to assist with the healing process and reduce the appearance of scars.

Below are some of the side effects and potential complications of severe burn injuries:

  • Scarring: One of the most common side effects of a severe burn injury is scarring, which can create ridged areas caused by scar tissue overgrowth.
  • Infections: Deep scars can leave skin in a vulnerable state, making it easy for bacterial infections to develop. If sepsis develops, it can travel through the bloodstream, leading to organ failure and shock.
  • Decreased body temperature: Skin assists in regulating body temperature, so when a substantial portion of skin is damaged, body temperature can potentially decrease, resulting in hypothermia.
  • Trouble breathing: If you sustained burns in a fire, inhaling smoke and hot hair can result in breathing difficulties and respiratory failure.
  • Joint and bone problems: When a burn is considerably deep, it can affect the bones and joints, resulting in limited movement. In some cases, a severe burn might even permanently pull the joint out of position.

In addition to the severe physical side effects of a burn injury, a survivor might also experience emotional trauma from having endured the accident that resulted in his or her injuries, requiring counseling an extensive therapy. You can rely on our team to help you recover the compensation you need to recover from your injuries, so you can comfortably move forward.
