What Causes Burn Injuries?

The most common types of burns are thermal burns, which result when your skin comes into contact with any type of heat source, such as fire, hot surfaces, or scalding liquids. Burns may also be caused by exposure to chemicals, electricity, and radiation.

Burn injuries cause serious harm to human tissue, and people must take precautions to prevent burns from happening. These injuries are almost always the result of someone’s careless behavior, such as intoxicated drivers who crash into other vehicles, landlords who fail to maintain operational fire alarms, and manufacturers of defective water heaters.

Frequent causes of burn injuries include:

  • Automobile collisions
  • Malfunctioning products
  • Industrial accidents
  • Home and apartment fires
  • Overheated pipes

Damage Caused by Burn Injuries

Burn injuries typically affect the skin. When they penetrate deeper, burns can damage every part of your body. Burn injuries are categorized based on their level of severity:

  • First-degree burns affect the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis.
  • Second-degree burns penetrate the second layer of skin, known as the dermis, which contains blood vessels, connective tissue, nerves, hair follicles, and sweat glands.
  • Third-degree burns destroy the dermis and epidermis and can also damage underlying bones, muscles, and tendons.
  • Fourth-degree burns affect all layers of skin, muscles, tendons, and bones, and they may harm internal organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys.

Medical issues caused by burn injuries include:

  • Bacterial infections
  • Loss of fluid
  • Breathing problems
  • Bone and joint damage
  • Amputation
  • Lung damage
