Each year, nearly 500,000 people in the U.S. suffer burn injuries serious enough to require medical treatment. In addition, each day an average 300 children in the U.S. require medical care as a result of burns and scalding. In many cases, common household items or appliances such as coffeemakers, stoves and bathtubs cause these injuries.
Burns and scalding injuries can be physically and psychologically devastating to victims. In many cases, the injuries associated with burns require extensive skin grafts, scar revision surgeries and even reconstructive surgery. Even after years of treatment, many victims never fully recover.
Certainly the physical damage caused by burns and scalding is serious (and often, fatal) and can lead to loss of limbs, fingers or toes, damage or loss of eyesight or hearing, as well as loss of cognitive abilities. In addition, the psychological issues often associated with burns and scalding can reverberate through a victim’s entire life. These often scar or disfigure victims, leading to psychological issues including changes in personality, social challenges, and difficulty in starting and maintaining relationships.
