WHAT IS BURN INJURY?
A burn is damage to the tissues of your body caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight, or radiation. The most common causes of burns are scalds from hot liquids and vapor, building fires, and flammable liquids and gases. Another kind of damage is inhalation, caused by smoke breathing.
There are three types of burns:
- First-degree burns damage only the outer layer of skin
- Second-degree burns damage the outer layer and the layer underneath
- Third-degree burns damage or destroy the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath
WHAT ARE BURNS CLAIMS?
Burns can range from the mildly superficial, but still painful, scald to the more severe burns that can lead to second- or even third-degree burns that require extensive medical attention. If, no matter how serious, you have suffered burns as a result of an incident that was not your fault, then you will be entitled to seek compensation. Our insurance claim would also take into account a variety of factors such as the extent of the injuries you have suffered, conditions such as loss of work, pain, and distress, and any emotional and financial upheavals when launching the claim.

WHAT REASONS ARE THERE FOR CLAIMING COMPENSATION FOR A BURN?
There are a variety of different reasons you might have sustained a burn and we will put you in touch with a team of professional burn injury lawyers who have several years of experience handling claims for compensation related to burns whatever the cause.
- Road accident
You can be entitled to seek compensation for those injuries if you have been involved in a traffic accident and suffered burns from the accident. Burns as a result of a road accident can occur when the accident causes a fire, vehicle fires can be especially dangerous and sometimes the burns that occur as a result of a road accident can be serious, not only causing substantial damage.
- Occupational accident
Workplace incidents can occur even though the best safety procedures are in place. The extent of the burns you receive will probably range from the smaller scalds to a much more severe burn depending on the type of job you hold and your place of employment, particularly if your employment around chemicals or flammables. Severe burns can cause severe complications that may involve taking a long time off work to heal, large amounts of medical follow-up, and even dealing with basic tasks on a day-to-day basis.
- Medical negligence
Burns can occur in a medical setting, whether as a result of radiation treatment, laser treatment, or even chemical burns, where a patient may be in contact with potentially dangerous substances. For some situations, such forms of burns can be due to incompetence on the part of the medical personnel, but in some situations, in a situation that could not have been prevented, this can happen. It may be due to medical negligence when burns are the result of medical dressing, particularly certain types of adhesive plastering. But, if the patient and the person who treats them didn’t know the patient
- Hot food and beverages
If a product is served, either in a fast food store, restaurant, or other dining establishments that is much too hot to be consumed safely, then you risk being scalded or burnt. When you’ve been scalded or burned from a takeaway or restaurant with hot food or drinks then you might have a court request.
