    The symptoms of electrical fire injuries


    If you’ve been in an accident involving an electrical fire, then you’ll know that the symptoms of electrical fire injuries can be devastating. From dealing with wounds needing recovery time to surgical treatments and more, treatment can be long lasting, as well as life changing. If your electrical fire accident was caused by someone else, you may wish to consider claiming compensation for your devastating injuries.

    The symptoms of electrical fire injuries

    The symptoms of electrical fire injuries can vary. Some may be minor burns requiring a bit of first aid, whilst more serious third-degree burns could require a long stay in hospital to repair the body as well as fight infection. Burns can affect movement and mobility, which could mean that you are unable to leave the house, let alone go to work or carry out your normal activities.

    One of the key ways you could be affected by an electrical fire is through an accident at work. Many electrical fires occur as a result of faulty electrical equipment in what are avoidable accidents. It is an employer’s duty to ensure that all equipment used in the workplace is safe for use, and if for any reason the appropriate checks aren’t carried out, leading to an accident, the employer could be made liable.

    Dealing with symptoms of electrical fire injuries can be a long process, and may require a leave of absence from work. Many employers in the UK only pay a lower rate of sick leave, whilst others may not pay any at all, particularly for casual workers. If you do find yourself without your regular income, you could end up falling behind on your mortgage and bill payments, leading to debts and financial difficulties.

    Making a claim

    You shouldn’t have to suffer the symptoms of electrical fire injuries and financial difficulties. By making a claim for compensation, you can ensure that any expenses incurred as a result of your accident are covered, allowing you to focus on your injuries instead.
