3 Types of Common Burn Injuries Suffered by Accident Victims

Burns are one of the most painful, serious and common injuries you can suffer in an accident. According to the American Burn Association (ABA), more than 450,000 burn injuries receive medical treatment each year in the United States. The survival rate for most burn injuries is approximately 96 percent, making this type of injury very painful and significantly impacting on a survivor’s lifestyle.Burned Skin

Unfortunately, unlike most other types of injuries suffered in an accident, a burn may never completely heal. A burn victim can live with the physical, emotional and mental scars of a burn for the rest of his or her life. If you or a loved one has suffered a burn in an accident that was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party, you should immediately consult an experienced personal injury attorney as you may be entitled to compensation.

3 Types of Common Burn Injuries

There are 3 types of burns that are common amongst most accident victims. Each burn is discussed separately below:

  1. Heat Burns. When the skin is exposed to open flames, hot objects or other sources of serious heat, the individual is at risk of getting seriously burned. Heat burns are most common amongst car accident victims. For example, if a car catches on fire after in the aftermath of an accident, the victim may suffer a heat burn after coming into contact with the open flames.
  2. Chemical Burns. Chemical burns happen when the skin comes into contact with strong caustic chemicals. Chemical burns are most common in accidents that involve hazardous materials.
  3. Electrical Burns. Electrical burns mostly occur when an electrical current passes through the body of the victim. Electrical burns often happen in car accidents and construction accidents. The variety of electrical wires and components in the vehicle provide an opportunity for an electrical burn to happen in a car accident. Similarly, on construction sites there are many open or live wires that can also provide an opportunity for a construction worker or other passersby to suffer an electrical burn.

Regardless of what type of burn you suffered in your accident, if your burn injury attorney can prove that it was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another party, you may be entitled to compensation. Hiring an experienced attorney to help you obtain the full compensation that you deserve is imperative because treating burn injuries can be very expensive.
