How Accidents Can Cause Burn Injuries

Burn injuries may not be the primary form of danger in most accidents, but they can add an additional hazard to already bad scenarios. Here are some examples of burn injuries and the accidents that cause them.

Flame Burns – Vehicle Accidents

When vehicles collide, there’s a possibility highly flammable gasoline will come into contact with something that can ignite it. Electric cars may not have this risk, but their batteries tend to run hotter than those in gas-powered cars and can combust in a collision.

Flash Burns – Negligent Maintenance by Gas Utilities

Like flame burns, flash burns happen when you are exposed to heat, but they are not caused by direct contact with fire. Caused by the explosion of substances like natural gas, propane, or gasoline, flash burns may result in first- or second-degree injury. Many homes and businesses are still powered by natural gas, meaning these burns can be caused by leaks in appliances or gas lines the owners don’t know about until it is too late.

Scald Burns – Excessively Hot Water

Shared water heaters, such as those in motels and apartment complexes, are often turned up extremely high to make sure every resident has access to hot water, even during peak times. This means anyone who gets the full force of that hot water might be burned. Especially among children and the elderly, who have thinner skin and therefore burn more easily, scalds can happen in just a few seconds.

Electrical Burns – Construction Accidents

Any environment connected to the electrical grid is a potential hazard, but these burns are most common on construction sites where the mechanisms that regulate electrical flow have not yet been installed. If workers do not have proper protective equipment or procedures in place to keep everyone safe, electricity may make a circuit through the body, causing injuries internal and external.

Chemical Burns – Flawed Cosmetics

Also known as caustic burns, chemical burns often result from cosmetic products that are poorly formulated. Everything from callus remover to acne treatments to hair dye can contain chemicals that aren’t recommended for human use at high concentrations. Unknowing customers have suffered injuries to their faces, hands, and feet from such products.
