Where is the most common place to become the victim of a catastrophic burn?

 

A:

Burns are perhaps the most frightening catastrophic injury one can experience. Along with the pain of the injury, you are left with a reminder of the accident in the form of severe scarring.

Dangerous burns are caused by a variety of dangers, including fires, electrical explosions, and chemical exposure. Many become catastrophic due to their devastating and life-changing effects on their victims.

Where Burns Commonly Occur

Accidents in which severe burns can occur can happen anywhere, but they take place at some locations more than others.

  • In the home. A vast majority of catastrophic burns are the result of accidents that occur in the home. In fact, around 70 percent of such incidents take place here, often due to kitchen fires and defective products.
  • At work. Around 19,000 employees are burned while at work each year. Often, these accidents occur when a worker is exposed to power lines, motor vehicle accidents, malfunctioning machinery, careless welding, industrial explosions, or another person’s negligence.
  • On the road. Motor vehicle accidents in which gas tanks explode or fires occur for other reasons can cause severe catastrophic burns. Contact with steam or other hot surfaces can also cause injuries.
