Burns and scalds are some of the worst injuries victims can suffer, often being caused in an accident at work. Not only are they extremely painful, they can leave terrible scars. Many of these sorts of injuries happen in the kitchens of restaurants and hotels, but also they occur in foundries and many other places where heat is involved in the working day.
You could be compensated through our personal injury lawyer in Cheshire
If burns or scalds are something you have experienced, and someone else was to blame, it’s highly likely that you are entitled to receive compensation with our personal injury lawyer in Cheshire. Accident Advice Helplines lawyers will take each and every detail of your claim into consideration.
If you have been burned or scalded it may be useful to know that these injuries are classified as follows:
- First-degree burns – these types of burns only affect the papillary (top) layer of skin, causing minor pain and redness for a short period.
- Second-degree burns – these burns affect deeper layers of skin, being more painful than first-degree burns. Second-degree burns are also accompanied by redness and blistering.
- Third-degree burns – completely burning the skin, third-degree burns affect the top layer of muscles. Blistering and scarring are typical with these types of burns, which can be fatal if a large area of the body is affected.
- Fourth-degree burns – fourth-degree burns extend through the skin and muscles to injure ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and bones.
If you think you have experienced any of the above burns, it’s important that you get in touch with us. We’ll be happy to discuss your possible claim for compensation with our personal injury lawyer in Cheshire.
