Burns and scalds, no matter how small, can often cause serious, life-changing injuries, resulting in a lifetime of pain and suffering. More serious burns and scalds can cause damage to nerves, muscles, tendon damage, ligament damage, permanent scarring and, in some cases, death.

In addition, burn scars will often contract, resulting in reduced mobility and in some cases lasting psychological trauma.

Depending on the severity of the burn or scald and the location on the body, victims may have to have body parts amputated, for example, if their arm has been seriously burnt, it may have to be removed. In addition, victims of burns or scalds may need extensive plastic or cosmetic surgery. Burns victims usually require a wide range of rehabilitation programs to aid in their recovery.

At Jefferies, our expert solicitors deal with a wide variety of compensation claims involving burns with heat, but can also handle burns caused by cold, chemicals, electricity, sunlight, radiation or friction. Our experienced team of personal injury and burns compensation claims solicitors can also help victims who have been scalded by steam or hot liquids. We regularly help them claim the compensation they deserve all on a no win, no fee basis.

Common causes and victims of Burns and Scald Injuries

Anyone of any age can suffer a burn or scald. However, the most at-risk group of people are children and the elderly as their skin is usually more delicate.

The expert solicitors at Jefferies deal with a wide variety of burns and scalds accident compensation claims. We have helped many people from all walks of life claim compensation for their injuries. However, the most common types of accidents we deal with are caused by:

Road accidents

  • Burns suffered from exploding airbags
  • Defective heated seats
  • Cars catching fire after accidents

Accidents at work

  • Burns from chemicals
  • Burns suffered due to faulty or inappropriate safety gear supplied

Accidents during surgeries or operations

  • Burns or scalds from clinical negligence

Accidents in public places

  • Burns or scalds in restaurants, cafes from hot food or drinks
  • Spillages of hot food or drinks

Accidents in schools or nurseries

  • Accidents from hot pipes
  • Staff leaving hot drinks where children can grab them

These are just a few examples of the types of burn and scald injury claims our expert solicitors deal with.

If you or a loved one has suffered a burn or a scald due to someone else’s negligence or through no fault of your own, contact a member of our team and get your compensation claim started today.

As part of a successful claim, you will not only be compensated for the pain and suffering associated with your burn, but we can also help you claim back other losses. These might include loss of earnings if you have been unable to work, or the cost of replacing clothes or belongings damaged in your accident. We may also be able to help you claim for the cost of camouflage makeup, which can help to conceal permanent scarring.
