Are you suffering from burns?
Although people often associate burns with fires, they can actually be caused in a number of ways. If you place your hand on a hot oven or cooker, for example, you could suffer burns. Alternatively, if your skin is exposed to something toxic, you could sustain chemical burns as a result.
Whilst most people are extra careful around potential hazards, sometimes it’s impossible to predict when an accident might occur. If you’ve sustained a burn because of the actions of someone else, you should be able to take legal action against them.
What medical treatment are you receiving?
Burns can be extremely painful and, if you’ve been badly, hurt you will need immediate medical attention. Although there are treatments available, many patients require numerous operations and skin grafts in order to repair the injury.
Due to this, the recovery process can be fairly lengthy and you may find that your life is significant affected for weeks or months after the incident.
Although it’s essential that you have received medical treatment before you make a compensation claim, your medical records will indicate exactly what help you received so this should be relatively easy to prove.
When should you contact a personal injury lawyer in Surbiton?
Although most claimants have up to three years to make a claim after an accident has occurred, you may choose to contact a personal injury lawyer in Surbiton much sooner. Often, claimants find it easier to recall the details of the incident if they make a claim quickly and you may also find it easier to access evidence relating to the incident.
In addition to this, the sooner you make your claim, the sooner you could be awarded compensation!
How much compensation could you receive?
As burns are generally considered to be serious injuries, you could receive a large amount of compensation if your claim is successful. If you’d like to find out how much compensation your claim could be worth, we can help.
