Burn injuries are caused when heat, chemicals, electricity or radiation damage the skin tissue. The severity of the injury depends on the intensity of the heat and the length of time that it is applied. Burn injuries are very painful and can result:
- Respiratory Distress
- Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome
- Electrolyte Imbalance
Treatment can often be long, costly, and seriously affect the victim's daily routine. The expenses of medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering can add up to a significant loss.
