Burns to the skin
Not only is a burn to the skin painful but it can also leave scars behind, leaving the sufferer with a permanent reminder of the accident that caused them. Burns to the skin can be caused by a variety of different means and it is not always the case that fire is the cause. Accident Advice Helpline and our ‘no win, no fee’ Mannings Heath solicitors have a wealth of expert knowledge and experience to draw upon when dealing with queries about burns.
Some causes of burns include:
- Exposure to chemicals
- Exposure to solvents and other abrasives
- Falling or slipping on untreated surfaces
- Scalding due to hot water
Again, the circumstances behind the nature of the burn are many and not just limited to the aforementioned but it is worth noting that in the workplace a great number of burns are caused by an inappropriate level of training or inadequate training when it comes to dealing with chemicals and solvents. Accident Advice Helpline and our ‘no win, no fee’ Mannings Heath solicitors have assisted many individuals dealing with injuries sustained because of chemical and solvent burns.
I’ve been burned and scarred – can I make a ‘no win, no fee’ Mannings Heath claim?
As we have already discussed, burns to the skin can leave scars behind and it is not always possible to have plastic surgery to remove or disguise such scars. At Accident Advice Helpline, along with our ‘no win, no fee’ Mannings Heath colleagues, we help those who have suffered skin burns and been left not only physically but emotionally scarred too. The nature of a scar or its place on the body can mean that is visible anyone who comes into contact with the victim and to this end it can be more than just a physical reminder of the accident. It can also be a psychological one as well. If you have suffered burns to your skin because of an accident and the accident was down to someone else’s negligence then we may be able to help you seek ‘no win, no fee’ Mannings Heath compensation.
