The spectrum of burn injuries is broad. On one end, there are minor burns that may be treated at home, or with one trip to the doctor. On the other end of the spectrum are major burns that may require medical treatment over the course of several years.
Survivors of serious burn injuries face months or years of necessary medical treatments. In addition, survivors encounter emotional, psychological and financial after-effects. At their very worst, burn accidents are fatal, either immediately or due to systemic poisoning or organ failure. Surviving family members are left to pick up the pieces.
