Suffering burns from an accident at work in St Albans
It is not just heat that can cause burns, you can get this injury from:
Scalds will have the same effects as burns, the only difference is that they are caused by wet heat rather than dry. They both receive the same treatment from the medical profession.
The degrees of burns and scalds
Burns and scald are put into degrees, to enable doctors to rate how severe they are:
- 1st degree burns are the mildest burns that you can suffer. They are painful, but do not produce blisters.
- 2nd degree burns are slightly more painful and you will get blisters, which if they burst can become infected.
- 3rd degree burns are the worst you can suffer without dying, although if the burns cover a large area then you could possibly die from your injuries. They go much deeper then 1st or 2nd degree burns.
- 4th, 5th and 6th degree burns you would not survive.
No matter what job you do, your employer should be protecting you from injuries such as these, and if they fail in this legal duty, they are liable to pay you compensation.
