Types of Burn Injuries
A burn injury can impact your quality of life as well as your ability to do your job. Although you can’t eliminate the possibility of accidents, you can take precautionary steps to reduce your risk of a burn injury. One of these steps is understanding why burn injuries happen.
Here are a few potential causes of burn injuries:
- Hot water or steam
- House fire (if due to landlord negligence)
- Broken or missing smoke detectors or fire extinguishers
- Commercial kitchen grease fire
- Electrical fire from faulty wiring
Severity of a Burn Injury
Regardless of your tolerance for pain, burn injuries can have long-lasting effects. Even a mild burn can lead to conditions like:
- Long-term pain or discomfort
- Nerve damage
Burn injuries can affect your appearance, your general comfort, and even your earning capacity. They can also become infected, which puts you at risk for further health problems and longer recovery times.
