    Dealing with burns, scalds and other skin injuries long-term

    If you suffered minor burns or scalds in an accident and received immediate treatment, chances are you won’t be left with any scarring or only those that will eventually fade.

    More serious accidents often result in substantial scarring and if those are visible to everyone who meets you, such scarring can be very upsetting. You may need scar therapies that minimise or disguise your scarring. You may need counselling. If you are disfigured by your skin injuries, you may have no choice but to opt for surgery – and the best surgeons in this field are invariably not working for the NHS but privately.

    A dermatologist can deal with minor scarring; you can have laser surgery or compression surgery for raised scars; you may have to wear a special type of silicon sheet for up to a year or undergo a series of skin grafts from other parts of your body. You may have to have more drastic surgery such as tissue expansion to deal with your skin injury and scarring.

    All this takes time and a great deal of determination to get through the pain and suffering.

    All Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors offer ‘no win, no fee’ legal services and have provided thousands of non-fault accident victims with access to justice and compensation since the law firm was founded in 2000. Their patron is Esther Rantzen, TV presenter, Childline supporter and perhaps the best known defender of consumer rights in the UK.

    No fuss services are what Esther likes best about the Accident Advice Helpline. Their solicitors deal with all paperwork so their claimants can concentrate on the important part: getting better and recovering from their injuries. Most claims are dealt with over the telephone with the aim of keeping discussions flowing between the defendant (the negligent party) and the claimant. This speeds up the claims process, makes it more efficient but also keeps down costs.

    Settling out of court is by far the fastest way to get compensation, but not all defendants are willing to accept liability. Sometimes claims go to court, where a judge will decide if compensation should be awarded and if so, how much.

    Your accident solicitor will forward a compensation claim which covers pain and suffering, loss of income (present and future, if injuries are severe and long-term) and any expenses paid during recovery that were the direct result of the accident.
