Gorvins Approach to Burn Claims & Compensations

Our solicitors ensure that they discuss all claims in a jargon-free and understandable manner and will do their utmost to get what you deserve.

How do I know if I have a burn compensation claim?

Not only are burns and claims very painful injuries, but they can also leave lasting scars and bodily damage. More serious third-degree burns can cause damage to muscles, nerves, ligaments and tendons which may even leave you with reduced mobility as well as possible psychological distress.

Many people assume burns just relate to fire and heat but there are a whole array of different types of burns that can be caused by chemicals, electricity, friction and radiation. Scalds differ in that they are caused by steam or hot liquids.

Severe burns can be very painful and can cause permanent damage to the skin and underlying tissues.

There are different types of burns, including:

  • Thermal burns, which are caused by contact with fire, steam, hot liquids, or hot objects
  • Chemical burns, which are caused by contact with acids, bases, or other caustic chemicals
  • Electrical burns, which are caused by contact with electrical currents
  • Radiation burns, which are caused by exposure to radiation sources, such as the sun or radiation therapy

The severity of a burn is typically determined by its depth and the amount of skin that is affected. Burns are typically classified as first, second, or third-degree, with first-degree burns being the least severe and third-degree burns being the most severe

The most common types of claims come from those who have had an accident in the workplace and whose job means there is a risk of coming into contact with chemicals, high temperatures and electrical equipment. All workplace risks should be properly controlled by the employer; therefore if you have had an accident it’s possible that you will be able to make a claim.
