Types and Causes of Burn Injuries

There are many situations that can cause burn injuries, including product defects, building fires, automobile accidents, fireworks accidents, gas explosions and electrocution. Burns can range from minor to severe and include the following types:

  • Contact burn — when skin is in contact with something hot
  • Electrical burn — from electrical outlets and wiring
  • Scalding — when hot liquids come in contact with skin
  • Flame burn — from explosions, smoking and flammable items
  • Ultraviolet burn — from tanning beds or prolonged exposure to the sun
  • Chemical burn — typically happens in an industrial environment
  • Inhalation — when hot smoke or fumes are inhaled during a fire
