    Cost of a solicitor in Oxfordshire

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Oxfordshire

    In the aftermath of an accident the priority is normally, and should be, getting treatment and help to the victims who require that help. It isn’t often until later down the line that questions such as compensation and the cost of a solicitors in Oxfordshire arise in the mind.

    Of course, it can be a great comfort to realise that you have the option of assessing the cost of a solicitor in Oxfordshire with a view to seeking compensation for any injuries you have suffered, but if you have been a victim and have been injured (whether mildly or severely) your priority should be on ensuring you and any other victims receive the right treatment.

    Burns and scalds

    In the case of burns and scalds, the appropriate treatment is quite standard and therefore easy to remember. It should always be administered as soon as possible.

    1. Stop the burning: this means either removing the person from the area, smothering the flames or removing the source of the burn.
    2. Remove clothing or jewellery: Whilst you should never attempt to remove anything which is stuck to a burn, getting clothes and jewellery away from the skin could help to prevent further injury or sticking.
    3. Cool the skin: Using cold or lukewarm water, cover the burn for up to 30 minutes. Ideally running water because this stays cool on contact.
    4. Keep warm: This might sound like a misnomer but patients with severe burns are at risk for hypothermia, especially if you’re dousing their burns in an external area or their burn area is significantly large.
    5. Cover the burn: Burnt skin is prone to infection and therefore you should aim to cover it with a layer of cling film or plastic as fast as possible.
    6. Painkillers: Paracetamol or ibuprofen may both be given where necessary and appropriate.

    In cases where the burn is particularly large, deep or blistered, or the patient is particularly vulnerable (an infant, pensioner or a pregnant woman) the victim should be assessed by a medical professional.

    Although the first aid should always be administered as soon as possible, the damage may still be long lasting, and it’s often when a victim realises they might have scars or permanent damage that they consider seeking compensation.
