Vehicle fires – Car accident fires or malfunctioning vehicle equipment frequently cause serious burns.
Work place accidents – On-the-job accidents can result in explosions, commercial fires and dispersed chemicals that cause burns.
Medical malpractice – Improper medical care such as negligent surgeries can lead to burn injuries inside and around the body.
Industrial accidents – Industrial accidents like fiery explosions, toxic chemical spills and massive fires can result in serious burn injuries.
Commercial fires – Fires at businesses often cause high intensity heat that can severely burn visitors and workers.
Electrical fires –Electrical fires from faulty wires or malfunctioning equipment can lead to intense heat and severe thermal burns.
Contact burns – Unsafe surfaces cause burns from hot metals, plastics, glass or coals.
Truck accident explosions – Explosions of natural gas, propane, gasoline and other flammable liquids being hauled by semi-trailers often lead to significant fires and burning injuries.
Chemical burns – Strong acids or alkali substances are a top cause of serious burning injuries. These substances continue to cause damage until the agent is inactivated.
Electrocutions – Electrocutions such as those caused by work accidents often cause serious burns and death.
Scalds – These burns are caused by hot liquids such as water, oil, grease, tar or oil.
