Common Causes of Burn Injuries

The most common cause of burn injuries is fire, although explosions due to faulty equipment or defective products, such as space heater, grills, appliances or any type of electronics equipment, are also capable of causing significant burns. When flames come in contact with a person’s skin, the damage, not to mention the pain and suffering, can be extremely severe. People who have suffered serious burn injuries know what a painful experience it can be. Burn injuries tend to not only leave permanent physical scars, they can also leave long-lasting emotional scars.
