Serious burn injuries at work – claiming compensation

burn injury claims

You could be eligible to claim personal injury compensation for serious burn injuries at work, and we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Employers should have insurance in place that is designed to be used by employees to claim from in the event they are injured as a result of negligence at work. As such, if you have suffered injuries in the workplace that could have been prevented, you may be entitled to recover compensation from the insurance.

All you need is an expert injury lawyer on your side. You can speak to our team here now for free and no-obligation advice about getting started right away.

Workplace compensation for serious burn injuries

You could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for serious burn injuries at work. Whether the burn injuries have arisen from contact with flame, chemicals, or perhaps hot equipment or instruments, you could be eligible to pursue a legal case.

To succeed with the claim, we need to establish that your employer has been negligent in the duty of care that they have for you. Health and safety regulations in the workplace are very stringent and they specifically cover your workplace, the equipment you use, any personal protective equipment you may need, and the control of chemicals.

As the rules are so stringent, there should be no instance really where an employee is at risk of suffering serious burn injuries at work. Whilst we will need to risk assess any claim that you may wish to pursue, if you have suffered injuries like this, you could be entitled to pursue a case.

The easiest way to find out if we are able to help you is to speak to our specialist injury legal team here now for a free, no-obligation chat.

A recent example reported

There are stringent health and safety regulations to prevent serious burn injuries taking place in the work environment. However, burn injuries are known to happen and, where breaches of health and safety law have taken place, regulatory investigations may need to be conducted.

There was a recent example reported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In this incident, a worker reportedly suffered 13% superficial burns to an arm and a hand when flammable vapours ignited in a workplace in Hull. The HSE reported that they found that equipment in place was not adequate enough to have prevented the build-up of a flammable atmosphere. The company was reportedly fined £480,000 and was also ordered to pay costs in the sum of £13,441.80.

You can read more about this incident on the HSE website here.

No Win, No Fee legal representation

Given how stringent health and safety regulations are in the workplace, we are usually able to represent victims claiming serious burn injuries arising from the workplace on a No Win, No Fee basis.

We work this way if we believe that the chances of succeeding with the case are good enough for us to be able to take the risk of pursuing the claim on the basis that you pay nothing if the claim does not succeed. All you have to do is adhere to the terms and conditions in place we are happy to waive our legal fees in the event that a successful defence is raised by the opponent.
