Effects of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries cause extreme pain and often lead to severe disfigurement and scarring. In some cases, burn victims may suffer life-threatening infections. In other cases, disability or chronic organ damage may occur.
Burn injury victims often have to undergo series of reconstructive surgery, medical procedures and various forms of treatment over the course of many years. A severe burn injury may also result in emotional and psychological injury. The victim is unable to work, thereby suffering loss of income.
All of these factors combined, makes burn injuries a very painful, expensive and devastating experience.
