Burns are incredibly painful because the nerve endings are damaged when skin is burned. Nerve damage results in intense pain, which may become chronic. Burns can also affect one’s blood vessels, bones, muscles, and even the respiratory system can be damaged with possible respiratory failure and airway obstruction. Significant urns can lead to permanent physical disfigurement, organ failure and even death.
A burn injury is one of the most expensive types of catastrophic injuries to treat. Aside from initial hospitalization, significant costs also include subsequent hospital admissions for reconstruction and rehabilitation.
Serious burn injury can also alter one’s appearance and present physical challenges that affect one’s ability to earn a living and lead a normal life. A burn victim may also suffer from significant emotional and psychological trauma, as well as ongoing financial loss.
