Claiming compensation for major burns at work

Burns can be among the most painful types of personal injury to receive in life, let alone the work place. As well as involving the possibility of scarring and disfigurement, serious burn injuries can affect vital organs and even result in death in some cases, while the scarring can also contract and cause reduced mobility and create psychological distress. If you believe that you have been affected by this then you could look to make a claim in order to compensate you for your injuries.

You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if you have been left with injuries in the workplace and neither should you have to pay for expensive medical fees. So whether you received them as a result of someone else’s negligence or it was an accidental occurrence, then you could look to make a compensation claim anyway in order to cover any potential costs that you have incurred.

What are some potential problems which could occur?

Suffering from a major burn is one of the most serious injuries imaginable and could result in your death in some cases, so it is important that health and safety is upheld. There are several instances of where this could occur, including:

·         Injuries caused by faulty appliances

·         Injuries caused by a lack of safety equipment

·         Injuries caused by negligent co-workers

·         Claims if you have been left with permanent injuries

·         Claims against chemical burns

Who could I consider claiming against?

Suffering from a major burns injury while in work can have a major impact on your life, because not only will it leave you in a lot of physical pain – with permanent scarring and manoeuvrability issues – it can also lead to mental problems too. If you believe this has affected you then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation, while this could be taken out against a number of people including your manager who is responsible for ensuring the safety of the workplace.  If you feel that someone has been negligent towards you, or that they have put your health at risk, then you could look to claim against them.
