A severe burn is considered one of the most painful injuries a victim can suffer from. Most often these burns are obtained in traumatic situations leading to permanent scarring and the loss of facial features, fingers, toes and partial paralysis, disfigurement, organ damage, body chemistry damage and sensitivity to temperature change. Furthermore, a severe burn can take up to two years before healing has commenced and cosmetic reconstructive surgery can take place.
