Burn injuries are one of the worst injures a person can receive in a car accident. A burn injury can cause disfigurement, scarring, and also severe nerve damage that can result in intense pain. Burns are also one of the leading injuries associated with auto accidents in this country, making their prevention and treatment a top health concern.
