Scald injuries often happen in the home. They are extremely painful. If you need an injury claim solicitor, then you can rely on Accident Advice Helpline to help you to launch a no win no fee* in Chinnor claim for compensation, if the injury was caused by a faulty product, faulty workmanship, or a trip hazard left in place by a contractor who was, or had been, working in the area.
The key, as far as compensation is concerned, is that the incident that brought about the scald injury must be the fault of a third party.
Treating a scald injury
The important thing with any scald injury is to treat it immediately to try and minimise the damage and pain.
- You should use lukewarm water to cool the burn for 20 to 30 minutes.
- You must not use ice, iced water, or any greasy or oily substances such as any creams or butter
- If there is any clothing covering the scald this should be removed as long as it is not stuck to the skin
- Keep the injured person warm by wrapping them in a blanket, but being careful not to rub or aggravate the scalded area
- Cover the scalded area with a layer of cling-film
- Use a painkiller like ibuprofen or paracetamol to try and help reduce the pain.
Burns and scalds happen more often than many people realise. Each year approximately 13,000 people are admitted to hospital for serious burns and scalds, and several thousand attend hospital A&E departments.
