Burns and scalds are common injuries, even minor instances of which cause a great deal of pain and suffering.
Burns are caused by flames or dry heat, whereas scalds are caused by steam or liquid. Both can require extensive treatment depending on the severity, with third-degree burns being life threatening. Burns and scalds often result in scarring, which can require a skin graft to fully heal. Both suffering and recovering from burns or scalds can be a traumatising experience, and you may find your life is changed forever by such an injury.
If you have suffered a burn or scald at your place of work within the past three years, depending on the circumstances you could be entitled to claim compensation. If someone else was directly responsible for your accident, you could be within your legal rights to make a claim.
For example, if you can prove that the negligence of a co-worker or your employer caused the accident in which you sustained your burns, you could hold them financially responsible for the damage they have caused. Especially in cases of burns, this damage can be more than just physical; this sort of serious injury can lead to emotional upset and financial losses, and can also have a significant impact on loved ones.
