Suffering even a mild burn can be a traumatising event, particularly when it was caused by the actions of someone else.
There are many different types of burn that can arise from things like heat and flame, electricity, radiation and even chemicals. If you have suffered this skin injury through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to seek financial compensation for your injury.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we specialise in handling cases of personal injury, and have successfully settled many cases involving burns over the past fourteen years. If your burn injury took place within the past three, our solicitors in Horrabridge can help you hold the right people responsible to ensure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.
Many people suffer burns at work, but they can happen elsewhere as well. The severity of a burn is defined by one of three categories:
- First degree burn – Only affecting the surface of the skin, a first degree burn is mild and characterised by a redness in the affected area
- Second degree burn – These are more serious and cause damage to the underlying layers of skin
- Third degree burn – Third degree burns are the most severe, affecting all layers of skin as well as the muscles and tissue underneath
Regardless of what you’re dealing with, if you weren’t responsible, you shouldn’t be left to pay.
