How you could sustain burn injuries during an accident?
Thousands of people every year sustain burns as the result of accidents that should have been avoided. How you could sustain burn injuries is very much dependent on what you were doing at the time of the accident and our team of advisers is here to help you make sense of it all.
Accident Advice Helpline has been on hand to provide advice and compensation claim making services for our clients since the year 2000. Since then, we have been responsible for securing millions of pounds in compensation for the victims of accidents that left them with burns and subsequent scars.
Here’s how you could sustain burn injuries in the workplace
Depending on your job, you may find yourself in the position where you have sustained a burn injury. Many burns are the result of working in environments where naked flame and extreme heat are commonplace.
Other burns can be the result of working with chemicals and caustic materials that are corrosive to the skin if allowed to make direct contact. In the workplace it is essential that the right protective clothing and training are available to all in order to reduce the chances of burn injuries.
Working in a kitchen environment for example, every effort should be made to ensure that employees are fully conversant with the maximum temperatures of fryers, hobs etc. as well as how to deal with an unexpected fire.
Failing to provide the relevant training in these environments is a failure in your employer’s duty of care and as such means they are negligent. While no one really wants to make a compensation claim against their employer, if your injuries are severe and prevent you from working, you are entitled to do just that.
