    Have you been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault within the last three years? If so, you are entitled to use solicitors in Isle of Mull to help you make a claim for personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you make the best possible case.

    Burns and scalds

    Burns and scalds damage the skin that has been injured because of extreme heat. The difference between the two is:

    • Burns are caused by dry heat from a fire, on iron or something similar
    • Scalds are caused by wet heat such as water or steam

    Treatment for both of these injuries is the same, however, if you suffer from either injury as a result of an accident in which you were a blameless victim of, then you should consider using solicitors in Isle of Mull to help you to make an injury compensation claim.

    Using first aid until you can get help

    If this case ever happens to you or anyone around you, where you have been burned or scalded, then here are a few things that you can do, to make you feel more comfortable until professional help can get to you.

    • If there is any clothing or jewellery near the injury, remove it if you can safely.  Do not try and remove anything that is stuck to the skin
    • Make sure the victim is kept warm with a blanket, but take care not to rub the burn with it
    • Cover the burn with a layer of cling film
    • Give painkillers to treat any pain
    • The victim should be moved away from the heat source that is causing the burn or scald
    • Cool down the burn with lukewarm water for 10 – 30 minutes.  Do not use ice, iced water, any greasy creams or butter – just water

    The next thing you should do is to go to the hospital. Many people over the course of a year, visit their hospital with either burns or scalds. In fact, over 13,000 patients are admitted each year because their burn or scald injuries are so serious.

    The most vulnerable people where burns and scalds are concerned are children under 5 and pregnant women, they should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
