Helping Britain’s burn victims
Burns are common injury in a number a workplaces, such as:
- Chemical plants and factories
- Work sites and construction sites
- Sites involving lots of electrical fittings and wiring
These burns can have a severe impact on your physicality as well as cause emotional pain and stress. A severe burn can damage the nerves, tissue and muscle underneath the skin as well as leaving you with a lifetime of pain and suffering as a result. Burns are classified as one of three degrees of severity. First-degree burns are generally minor and usually only affect the top layer of skin.
Second-degree burns can reach the layers of skin underneath and third degree burns are the most severe, sometimes requiring surgery such as skin grafts to fully heal. Even then, you will still have to live with discomfort and dis-figuration. If someone else has caused this, they should have to pay. Get in touch with our injury lawyer Rhayader office to discuss your case and the possibility of seeking compensation.
