Burn Injuries at Work Claims
While some minor burns can be extremely painful, they tend to heal in a short amount of time, leaving no long-term scars or psychological effects. Unfortunately, some burns are more serious. They can lead to scars which remain for the rest of the individual’s life and also cause psychological problems and distress for the whole family unit.
If these serious burn injuries are acquired in an accident at work it may be possible to claim compensation. The serious injury lawyers at Jefferies are perfectly positioned to help you win this compensation.
What are burns, scars and lacerations?
Depending on the nature of your workplace accident, your injuries may take a number of forms. The most common workplace injuries are as follows:
Burns are common in industrial workplaces and kitchens. They are usually caused by extreme heat, but can also be caused by extreme cold or chemicals.
Lacerations are also common, caused by breaks in the skin as a result of a cut or heavy impact. They typically occur after contact with a blade or piece of machinery. They can also be caused by heavy falls.
Some burns or lacerations leave permanent remnants on the body known as scars. Scars occur once a burn has healed and can also be caused by surgical procedures. Scars can have lifelong consequences psychologically, particularly when they are visible to the public eye.
Can I make a burn injury at work claim?
Burns and scalds are actually fairly common injuries in certain industries. If you ply your trade in a workplace that contains extreme temperatures, chemicals or electrical equipment and machinery it is likely that you or somebody you know has sustained an injury such as a burn, scar or laceration.
If you have sustained any of these injuries due to a workplace accident which was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. Pursuing a claim holds the party responsible liable for the physical trauma caused and also for the psychological effects of the incident and subsequent injuries.
