- Second-degree burn injury (more severe, blisters, may require skin graft)
- Third-degree burn injury (more severe, thickened skin, hospitalization required)
- Fourth-degree burn injury (most severe, damage to tendons and bones)
Burn injuries occur for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of burn injuries include:
- Hot liquids
In many cases, many burn injuries occur because of accidents at work, including construction accidents and restaurant accidents.
