Catastrophic burn injuries can cause long-term or permanent disability, and often require extensive care. Here we look at some causes of these severe burns.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Burn Injuries

Although just about all burns are painful, some are so severe they cause disability. Catastrophic burn injuries can change a person’s life and cause intense mental, physical, and emotional pain.

Catastrophic Burn Injury Causes

Although you can become severely burned in a variety of different ways, some are more common than others. Here, we take a look at some of the main reasons why people become so injured.

  • Automobile and truck accidents. If you were driving down Highway 202 and a tractor-trailer jackknifed and slammed into you, your fuel tank could explode and leave your vehicle engulfed in flames. Such a large explosion can easily cause catastrophic burn injuries. Motorcyclists, in particular, are prone to becoming severely burned as they aren’t protected by their vehicles like other motorists are.
  • Industrial and construction site accidents. Those in the industrial and construction businesses put their lives in danger every day. Besides working around heavy and large equipment and material that could easily cause injury, they also often work with materials that can cause massive fires. Additionally, such workers are also often exposed to chemicals that can cause dangerous and life-threatening burns.
