    Can I claim for a burn from a kiln?


    It may sound like a strange question, but ‘can I claim for a burn from a kiln?’ is not that uncommon. Anyone who has ever taught or attended a pottery class, or who works professionally as a potter, will know that using a kiln is not the safest thing in the world. The temperatures that it can reach are far too high for anyone to simply put their hand into it, so all the necessary protective equipment and clothing is required. If this is not provided when you are using the kiln, it means that somebody has overlooked some serious health and safety issues.

    Burns take some time to recover from, and serious burns may mean that you need extensive hospital treatment, such as skin grafts. It can leave lasting scars and this means that your simple accident in the pottery room could become something that you will have to live with forever. The financial issues that could also follow, however, need not be something that affects you long-term.

    How can I get help?

    You need to be sure that you contact Accident Advice Helpline for advice. As a specialist law firm, we handle personal injury cases all the time, and we employ a team of skilled advisors and solicitors who have experience in all kinds of personal injury cases. Getting the right legal assistance on your side is essential. Trying to fight a personal injury case on your own can not only be very long-winded, it can also be a stressful experience.

    Once you have had medical treatment for your burn, you should call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as you can. The sooner that your claim starts moving, the sooner you can stop worrying. It is important that you make a claim for financial compensation as you may need to take a lot of time off work. In the majority of cases this will lead to financial hardship. Not everyone has the luxury of full sick pay for all of the time they are off work, so how will you manage if this happens to you?

    What advantages are there to using Accident Advice Helpline?

    The first advantage has to be our no win, no fee* system. We will not ask you to pay out anything upfront in order to get your claim started. This is something that we believe is very important. Legal redress is not something that should only be available to those with a healthy bank balance, particularly if the accident in question was not your fault. Why should you have to wait to get the justice and compensation that you deserve?
