What exactly are Burn Victims? Burn injuries are often caused by carbon monoxide poisoning or hot objects being held close to the skin. Some causes include car accidents, defective electrical wiring, open gas tanks, or cooking stove problems. Although this is not a widely known fact, most burn victims usually do not seek medical assistance; some even die without ever receiving medical care. Some may eventually need surgery, but sadly, no one wants to think of dying from a broken bone, burn or smoke inhalation.
