Electrical burns and injuries make up a large number of all accident at work claims in the UK each year, yet sadly they are among the most preventable.
Accidents involving electrical wiring or appliances can occur in the blink of an eye and leave those involved facing serious, painful burn injuries. The severity of these burns can vary, but in almost every case, those suffering will have to adjust to a lesser quality of life to some extent whilst they heal.
A burn injury can mean having to take time off work, which can have a substantial impact on your household income and mean that you have to make sacrifices in order to be able to pay for your medical treatment. If you have suffered serious burns, you may have to undergo a skin graft to fully heal, and even then, you can be left with scarring and numbness in the affected area for the rest of your life.
