Are you making a Hamilton compensation claim for a burn injury?
When people suffer burns related injuries, they can normally occur in a variety of ways. Although people often associate burns injuries with fires, people can commonly suffer burns if they are scalded with hot water or liquids. If you’ve been injured in this way through no fault of your own you need to make a Hamilton compensation claim.
Burns and scalds
Fires can be devastating and can easily cause life-changing injuries or fatalities. Whilst fires can be relatively rare, people regularly handle hot water and liquids on a daily basis. This means that this type of accident could be more likely to occur.
If you’ve been scalded by water, it’s possible that you accidentally knocked a cup or mug over or that someone spilled something on you.
If someone was to scald you through negligence on their part, it’s possible that you could make a compensation claim against them.
However, there are other ways that this type of injury could occur. If, for example, you purchased a new kettle but the item had a fault, you could easily suffer a burn related injury. Perhaps an electric shock causing a burn.Open Claim Calculator
If the kettle were to leak or overflow, you may suffer burns to your hand, or even your face, depending on how close you were to the item at the time.
A household appliance could cause serious injuries if it were to malfunction in this way. However, if you were injured due to an industrial appliance, you may suffer more severe injuries due to the size and power of the machine.
Who is responsible
In such instances, it’s highly likely that the manufacturer would be held accountable for any defects which caused the incident.
You may, therefore, be able to make a claim for compensation against them. In addition, making a claim can ensure that other potentially dangerous items are recalled. |
