Burns are damage to the tissues caused by heat, exposure to radiation or sunlight, or contact with chemicals or electricity. They can range in severity from minor injuries to major, life-threatening emergencies. Burn severity is rated according to how deep the damage goes.
According to the American Burn Association (ABA) burns remain a leading cause of injury and death in the U.S.
ABA reports that the primary causes of burn injuries are fires, scalding, contact with hot objects, electricity, and chemicals. Common causes of burn injuries include:
When a person is burned because of someone else’s negligence, the negligent party may be held responsible. For example, when a defective product burns a consumer, the victim may seek damages in a product liability claim against the manufacturer. The property owner or business owner may be held liable in a premises liability claim for injuries sustained in a hotel or apartment fire.
