Have you been hurt by boiling water?
Although most people try to take as much care as possible when handling hot items, such as saucepans and boiling kettles, sometimes accidents might happen and you could find yourself suffering from a burn.
If boiling water is spilled on you, you will need to access medical help as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this type of injury can be extremely painful. Whilst you may be able to remove some of your clothing to prevent additional burning, if the water strikes your skin, it is likely that you will suffer significant burns.
Due to the nature of the injury, you may require treatment for a significant amount of time. Often, when people suffer from a burn, medical professionals will apply ointments and bandages to the affected areas. Whilst this can allow the burn to heal, it can also prevent infection from occurring which could, potentially, increase your recovery time.
If you’ve suffered this type of injury because of someone or something else, they could be held liable and you may be able to take action against them.
Why not make a claim with an injury claims solicitor in Luxulyan?
In order to make a claim with a personal injury solicitor in Luxulyan, you’ll need to show that someone or something else caused the burn or the injury. If, for example, you were in a cafe or restaurant and the waiter or waitress spilled a hot drink or water on you, the restaurant could be held liable and an injury claims solicitor in Luxulyan may be able to obtain compensation from them.
Often, many work kitchens and eating areas have hot drinks machines or vats of hot water available for staff to make a hot drink with. If these aren’t properly maintained, you could find that you suffer an injury as a result in which case a personal injury claims solicitor in Luxulyan may be able to help you to make a compensation claim against your employer.
