If you have suffered an injury at work that was not and fault that has resulted in a scar or a burn then you may be entitled to compensation.

So can I really make a compensation claim for a burn?

Yes. If you have been burnt or scarred in any situation that wasn't your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Your burn or scar does not necessarily have to have occurred at work or anywhere. It could happen anywhere. As long as blame can be attributed, there could always be a potential claim.

As an employee you have a legal right to expect a safe working environment, free from risks - including the risk of burns and scars. If you feel you have not been given adequate protection, and have suffered such an injury as a result you may be entitled to compensation.
