Because they often cover a large area, burn injuries are some of the most painful injuries possible. The skin is the largest organ in the body and has millions of sensory receptors, meaning even first-degree burns can be extremely painful and take some time to heal. Second- and third-degree burns, however, are even more dangerous and can cause permanent loss of motion, disfigurement and even death.
Spinal cord injuries can be very serious, and because the spinal cord carries nerve impulses to and from all the different parts of the body, these types of injuries can affect much more than just the spine. Spinal cord injuries can cause everything from problems with the senses all the way to complete paralysis. Because of the complexity and severity of these types of injuries, the rehabilitation process is often slow, long and costly.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety is scrambling to come up with a strategy to combat the recent string of wrong-way crashes happening around the Interstate 17 and Loop 202 areas. The fourth crash in two weeks occurred on May 24 near New River around 11 p.m. According to reports, a Jeep was driving the wrong way on Interstate 17 when it crashed head-on into a pickup truck. The Jeep had apparently been going in the wrong direction for approximately three miles before the crash. According to officials, both of the vehicles' front ends were unrecognizable after the crash.
A burn injury to a child could result in an infection that moves to a muscle or joint. In the event this occurs it could result in restriction to the child's movement for the remainder of his or her life. It's for this reason that medical treatment is immediately required. In part this is why burn injuries are so serious in nature.
