A person who sustains severe burn injuries are not only bestowed a physical challenge, but a psychological one as well. First-degree burns may cause skin surface level scars and pain, but second, third, and fourth degree burns are devastating.

Burn injuries often result from the following:
- Work accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Structure fires
- Electrical fires
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Recreational fires
- Scalding water
- Steam accidents
