Burn injuries are among the most painful and disfiguring types of trauma an accident victim can endure.
Work injuries and auto accidents are among the leading causes of burn accidents. Two-thirds of victims are males, who are often a family’s leading wage earner. Recovery can be a long and complicated process and the prognosis is often dependent upon access to expensive, specialized treatment in an advanced burn unit.
