The Leading Cause of Burn Injuries
The American Burn Association reports that the most common cause of burn injuries is fire or open flame. There are over 3,000 civilian fatalities caused by fire every year, either in residences or in the workplace. However, the cause of burn injuries in industrial settings is not exclusive to open flame.
Burn injuries fall into four categories:
Thermal burns (includes fires and contact with heated items)
Flash burns (includes explosions)
Inhalation burns (includes lung damage due to smoke or chemical vapor)
Regardless of the kind of burn you've received, there's a steep cost to treat a serious burn injury. Specialists, around-the-clock monitoring, and multiple corrective surgeries are typical for full-thickness burns (aka third-degree burns). Some burn injuries can incur more than $1 million in hospital bills; burns are permanent losses in more ways than one.
