Burn Injuries Compensation

Burn Injuries Compensation

Industrial work sites are typically full of activities and many workers. The worst thing that can happen on such a site is an explosion and a fire eruption killing and injuring a large number of workers. Some of the identified precautions needed to be taken work sites include:

  • With huge boilers, fuel deliveries and high temperatures, the suppliers of electrical utilities must exercise intense caution while burning and handling fuels. Explosions and fires caused due to these can cause wrongful deaths and devastating injuries.
  • On any construction or industrial site, the temporary electrical wires can cause electrocution or electrical burns. Therefore, they should be properly maintained and installed.
  • Chemicals are significant in industrial and manufacturing business. When these chemical are mislabelled, mishandled, improperly mixed or stores, they can cause life threatening and painful chemical burns to the workers. So, extreme care should be applied while handling chemicals.
  • Fires, explosions, chemical burns and other such industrial injuries and illnesses are often dismissed to be accidental while most of them are caused due to the negligence of the employers. When the employers do not employ proper safety procedures, these injuries cannot be considered as accidental. Therefore, if you have suffered burn injuries at your work site, you have all the civil and legal right to make a burn injuries compensation claim against your employer.

Burn injury claims depend upon the extent of the injuries that are defined in the terms of depth and area of the tissues damaged. Whether your injuries are caused due to chemicals, heat, radiation or electricity, you can get a sufficient amount of compensation money as usually the treatment procedures are expensive and there are chances of permanent physical damage including scarring, disability, infection, hearing loss or blindness as well as psychological loss for lifetime.

We must understand that burn injuries are of three degrees, 1st, 2nd and 3rd, depending upon the tissues damage depth. 1st degree burns such as sun burns or slight radiation burns are limited to the outer layer of the skin and can heal within some days. 2nd degree burns are damage to the inner and outer skin layers and 3rd degree can damage tissues like muscles and blood vessels. 3rd degree burns may need skin grafting, surgery, therapy and reconstructive surgery which may cost so much. Therefore, by making your burn injuries compensation claim, you can finance your treatment from your employers. Usually, the victims of such injuries feel self-conscious and may suffer from acute trauma, which is why these cases are taken care of with so much sensitivity.

Injury claims vary in complexity but it is always advisable to use a solicitor to ensure that the claim is properly presented and all areas of possible compensation are included.
