Leading Causes of Burn Injuries
Some of the most common causes for burn injuries in the United States include:
- Fire / flame contact – 46% of burn injuries
- Scalding from hot liquid or steam – 32% of burn injuries
- Thermal burns from hot items including stovetops / ovens – 8% of burn injuries
- Electrical burns from contact with electricity – 4% of burn injuries
- Chemical burns – 3% of burn injuries
Assorted causes such as sun burns and inhalation injuries cause the last 7% of burn injuries incurred in the United States, according to the American Burn Association’s Burn Incidence & Treatment Fact Sheet published in 2007. Some of these accidents occur at home, others occur in car accidents, and still others occur on the job.
