Accidents Can Cause Serious and Fatal Burns
Burn injuries often happen in car accidents and truck accidents. A serious auto accident can become a devastating accident if the gas tank explodes and burns all the occupants of the car. A fuel tanker explosion can burn the driver and anyone else in the nearby area. Even motorcycle accidents can result in a type of burn called “road rash,” where skin is burned due to the friction of sliding on the road.
When safety rules are not followed, fires and explosions can result. Poorly installed temporary wiring at a construction site can cause electrical shock burns. Improper mixing of chemicals needed for the production line can fuel a manufacturing plant explosion or fire. A candle left burning can cause a major house fire resulting in burns to the mouth, throat and lungs from smoke inhalation.
