Examples of burn injuries
The following is a breakdown of how burn injuries may occur:
- Contact with fire or flame: A car accident or explosion at a factory may cause a thermal burn.
- Contact with chemicals: Some defective products may cause a chemical burn. A chemical burn injury also may be a result of inhalation of fumes.
- Electrical burns: This type of injury may be the result of a defective product, such as a malfunctioning toaster.
Burns are categorized by degrees. A first-degree burn is relatively minor (red skin and discomfort). A second-degree burn typically includes blisters and superficial destruction of the dermis. A third-degree burn extends deeper into the tissue and is marked by destruction of the dermis and epidermis. With fourth-degree burns, the victim's skin may be destroyed, as well as damage to the muscle, fascia or bone.
