Common Causes Of Burn Injuries
Burn injuries cover a wide range, from mild first-degree burns to severe third-degree burns. There’s even a fourth-degree burn, which refers to burns where the injury affects the bones and tendons as well as the skin.
Work-related burn injuries occur for many different reasons, including:
Fires at work
Direct contact with a hot surface, especially in commercial kitchens
Boiling water poured onto someone’s skin
Exposure to an open flame, such as a blow torch or gas flame on a stove
Whatever the cause of your work-related burn injury, no matter how straightforward or complicated your case might seem, we want to help you get your life back on track.
