Burns can lead to a host of health issues, as well as issues that continue throughout the victim's life. We know that coping with a serious burn injury is hard.

Third-degree burns are the most serious burns that can cause severe disfigurement and other medical issues.

The patient will likely also have to learn to live without their income since they will likely have to stop working because of the burn.

What are the most common causes of fires?

Burn injuries are some of the most painful types of injuries anyone can deal with. Because of the increased risk of infection, these injuries often mean long hospital stays, including the possibility of skin graft surgeries, and recovery can take months.

Burn victims also often struggle with the emotional aftermath of the accident, especially if there are significant levels of scaring.
