A burn injury can occur almost everywhere, especially around the home or in the workplace. According to experts at John Hopkins Medicine, the leading causes of burn injuries are smoking or open flames for adults, and scalding for young children. Many of these burns are classified as thermal burns, in which scalding liquids, hot metals, steam, or flames make contact with exposed skin.

Accidents do occasionally occur, but negligence or bad intentions leave innocent victims forced to live with unsightly scars and damaged skin for the rest of their lives. Someone must be held accountable for those injuries, and that’s what we, at HawkLaw, vow to fight for on your behalf. We believe in accountability and reparations to innocent victims, and we use all of our skills to do Right By You and fight for justice.

Burn Injury Facts

Non-fatal burns are a leading cause of extended hospitalizations, disfigurements, and disabilities, according to the World Health Organization. The consequences of these injuries often result in social stigmas and rejections that cause permanent psychological scars.

Children and adult women are more likely to lose their lives as a result of a serious burn. However, burn injuries, in general, are more common in adult men than in other demographics.

Types and Causes of Burn injuries

  • Thermal Burns

    These are the most common burns and are a result of a heat source causing searing damage to exposed skin. Hot products, steam, car accidents, and small fires are the most frequent causes of thermal burns.

  • Electrical Burns

    Unlike other types of burns, damage from an electrical burn occurs beneath the top layer of skin. They occur when electrical current courses through the body, typically due to exposure to a live power wire or a defective electrical appliance.

  • Chemical Burns

    These burns occur when dangerous chemicals are mixed together in unsafe environments. Chemical burns are often unintentional due to a lack of clear warning labels on the chemical products that cause the burn.


    Radiation burns are a result of long periods of exposure to thermal radiation or ultraviolet light. Sunburns, particularly severe sunburns, are also classified as radiation burns due to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays.
