    How to claim workplace burns compensation


    Burns are amongst the most common injuries to be sustained in accidents at home, but they’re actually surprisingly common in the workplace too! If you’ve suffered burns whilst working in a factory, the construction industry, the hospitality industry or in any other job, you could find yourself eligible to make a claim for workplace burns compensation.

    It’s unlikely you’ll be able to claim workplace burns compensation if you were simply being careless at work, but a lack of training, faulty equipment or an unsafe workplace could mean your employer is liable for your injuries. Accident Advice Helpline has successfully helped hundreds of workers to claim compensation for burns sustained at work – we could help you too, and it’s free to get in touch to find out more.

    What type of accident caused your burns?

    Perhaps you work in agriculture and have suffered chemical burns after being exposed to toxic chemicals. If your employer hasn’t provided safety training in the handling of these chemicals, protective equipment or labelling for chemical containers, they could be ordered to pay you compensation for your injuries. Or maybe you work in a coffee shop and have suffered burns after being scalded by hot water from a faulty coffee machine.

    If an electrical fire breaks out in your office, you could suffer serious second or third-degree burns which require emergency medical treatment – and it’s your employer’s responsibility to ensure electrical equipment at your workplace is safe to use.

    Claiming personal injury compensation could be possible if somebody else’s negligence has led to your injuries, but don’t stress out over expensive legal fees. We offer a 100% no win, no fee** service and we’re confident that we can get you the compensation you deserve, whether you have suffered first or third-degree burns.
