Burn Injuries

Every year in the United States millions of people are burned, and according to statistics from the American Burn Association 2007 Fact Sheet, an estimated 500,000 people receive medical treatment for burn injuries each year, and there are an estimated 4,000 fire and burn deaths each year.  An estimated 40,000 people are hospitalized as a result of their burn injuries, with more than 60% requiring admission to a specialized burn center.  Burn injuries are second to automobile crashes as the leading cause of accidental death in the United States.

Burns are generally classified by severity:

  • First-degree burns damage only the outer layer of skin.
  • Second-degree burns damage the outer layer and the layer underneath.
  • Third-degree burns damage or destroy the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath.

Burns can be caused by many factors - heat, electricity, radiation,  chemicals, or other hazards.  Burn injury victims often suffer from painful and debilitating symptoms, and many deal with disfigurement and disabilities for the rest of their lives.  These individuals may require lengthy and extensive medical treatment and face a lifetime of emotional and physical pain and suffering. 

The medical costs involved in treating burn injuries are significant and are one of the most expensive types of injuries to treat.  They often involve repeat hospitalizations for reconstruction surgeries such as skin grafting, as well as physical therapy and rehabilitation.  Serious burn injuries can also take a toll on a person’s self image due to the scarring they will have to endure for the rest of their lives and therefore they often require counseling to help overcome these mental issues.
