Claiming compensation for minor burns at work

Minor burns and scalds are among some of the most very painful injuries you can receive in the workplace, as even the slightest one can remain painful for a long period of time. Cases such as this occur if you work in a job where you are required to work with flammable substances or places where there is the risk of coming into contact with high temperatures, friction, radiation, electrical equipment or chemicals. If you have been subjected to burn related injuries then this can be a very painful and traumatic, not to mention costly as you are left with hospital fees, so making a claim for compensation could be your best option.

It is the duty of your employers to ensure that their workplace is safe and that protective equipment is provided at all times, so if they have failed to provide you with appropriate safety equipment then a claim could be taken out against them for negligence.

Common causes of glass related claims

It is the responsibility of your employers to ensure that the workplace is safely maintained, reducing the risk of burns related injuries. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case and you could be injured as a result. Some examples of where this could occur include:

·         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 might be at fault in this situation?

If you believe that you have been injured in the workplace as a result of a lack of safety equipment, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. In general, a claim of this nature would usually be directed at a manager who has inadequately provided this equipment, but action could also be taken against a co-worker if their mistake resulted in your injury. If your health has been put at risk and you can prove it in court, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence – making a claim could be a huge benefit to you and it could help you with any financial issues you have incurred as a result.
