Sure-Fire Facts on Burn Injuries

A burn can be caused from all kinds of accidents, ranging from car accidents to work-related burns to even home accidents while cooking. According to the American Burn Association, approximately 486,000 people receive medical treatment for burn injuries every year.

Did you know that one civilian fire death occurs every two hours and 42 minutes? It is quite shocking how many freak accidents related to fire and smoke have lead to severe burn injuries and even deaths in the United States. Even if you think you are being careful and taking all the necessary precautions, accidents can still happen.

Here are some “sure fire” facts on burn injuries:

  • Deaths related to fire and smoke inhalation – 3,240
  • Residential fires – 2,855
  • Vehicle crash fires – 300
  • Hospitalizations related to burn injuries – 30,000

The odds of a fatality from exposure to fire, flames or smoke is 1 in 1,418.

Burn injuries and accidents are very serious. If you or a loved one was involved in any type of car accident or work-related accident that resulted in severe burn injuries or even death, then it’s important to remember that you have rights.

Protecting your rights and filing a personal injury suit against a negligent individual who is responsible for your burn injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one should be your number one priority.
