Learn more about the long term effects of burn injuries
Burns can be sustained in a whole variety of occupations and locations. Regardless of where you have received your burn injuries, you need to have treatment for them as soon as is possible. The sooner you have treatment the less likely you are to suffer the long term effects of burn injuries.
At Accident Advice Helpline we have been able to secure compensation for the victims of accidents who should have had treatment for their burn injuries sooner than they actually did. This is not something that is the fault of a medical practitioner or a hospital, but rather a failure on the part of a company or organisation when it comes to providing adequate first aid.
What are the long term effects of burn injuries?
Having sustained burns, you may well find it necessary to have some kind of plastic surgery or skin grafting in order to try and replace skin that has been too severely damaged. In addition to this, your injuries may be such that you have difficulty moving the hand or limb that has been burned.
If your burn injuries were sustained around your facial area, it is important to consider damage to facial nerve endings as well as the eyes, sinus and mouth. Such injuries can leave the accident victim with considerable feelings of low self-esteem and lacking self-confidence – that is only to be expected.
Whatever the nature of your injuries, if you have sustained them through no fault of your own and have been unable to return to work, you could be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation. Our solicitors can help make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
