If you receive burns in a car accident that affects more than 15% of your body as an adult, these are considered to be major injuries.

These burns may require long-term hospitalization and intense physical therapy in order to recover.
Infections, amputations and permanent scars may occur due to your burns. These complications may further increase your medical expenses.
