Every year, people sustain burns or scalds in Wishaw at their place of work.
Burns and scalds – what you need to know about compensation
Burns are caused by dry heat, whereas scalds occur due to boiling liquids. These sorts of injuries have varying degrees of severity, but almost always result in permanent scarring. Common side effects include numbness, tingling, blistering and pain, and those with third-degree or the most serious level of burns may face life-long disfiguration. In severe cases, a burn or scald can lead to death.
If you have sustained either a burn or scald, you may be entitled to compensation depending on the circumstances. If you are unsure about whether or not you qualify, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help. Accident Advice Helpline has over 15 years of experience putting together strong cases for compensation, awarding over £30 million a year in payouts.
We have dealt with workplace accidents that have resulted in burns and scalds before, helping those injured in places of employment such as commercial kitchens and factories. In order to make a claim, your accident must have taken place within the past three years, and it must have occurred as a direct result of someone else’s negligence.
