    A burning sensation

    Accidents involving fire are particularly horrific and typically cause long-term damage to victims or end in fatalities. If you were scalded or burned, you need fast and appropriate first aid treatment, which will not only alleviate pain but also speed up your recovery. Prompt action by those around you in a position to help at the time of you suffering your injury will be the key to faster healing and not suffering as much scarring.

    The skin is the largest organ in the body, and although it may be susceptible to injury because of its size and exposure, our skin has astonishing powers of regeneration. Immediate action is required, though, to prevent long-term pain and suffering.

    Minor burns

    If you suffer burns in a minor accident at home, you can cool the burn immediately by running cold water onto the affected area for at least ten minutes. It relieves pain and prevents blistering. If your burn is deep or larger than a postage stamp, seek immediate medical attention.

    Medium to major burns and scalds

    Accidents at work are often responsible for medium to major burns. Sometimes accident victims are caught in fires that spring up in public places, such as restaurants, discotheques, hotel ball rooms or pubs. A responsible proprietor adheres strictly to fire regulations, and has fire and smoke alarms, sprinkler systems and appropriately marked fire doors that lead people to safety. Negligent landlords or proprietors of such establishments can be sued for their negligence by the victims of the accident.

    Employers not storing hazardous materials the way they should be or not making sure employees know how to handle such materials are equally at fault, and you can claim compensation if you get hurt or if a family member suffers horrific burns or scalds in an accident at work.

    Making a claim with an accident solicitor in Brixham has to be right for you and your family

    Contact an accident solicitor in Brixham about your burns or visit the Accident Advice Helpline website, where a 30-second test will ask you just four simple questions:

    • Did your accident happen in the last three years?

    • Did you seek medical treatment for your injuries?
    • Which part of your body was injured in the accident?

    If you qualify, a compensation calculator will estimate how much compensation you might receive if your claim is successfully settled by an accident solicitor in Brixham.

    You may have to contact several law firms before you find the right kind of specialist who offers no win no fee services. What are those? Well, no win no fee means you can start your claim process straight away without paying any money upfront or during the claims process. All of our solicitors offer this service, no matter where you are in the UK.

An advisor can assign the best suited specialist to your claim, but you are under no obligation to proceed. The specialist solicitor allocated to your case may not be an accident solicitor in Brixham, but a specialist based elsewhere.
