burn injury and permanent scar compensation frequently asked questions

If you’ve suffered a burn and think you may need legal advice, we’d be happy to help you. Our team will talk to you about your burn injury and will be able to advise you on the next steps to take, and whether you are eligible to claim compensation.
Common environments and circumstances that can lead to a burn injury may include:
The two most common causes of chemical burns are workplace accidents, and sadly, acid attacks. Both can be severe and cause lasting damage, which is why it’s important for anyone who goes through this to receive the support they need; medically, legally and psychologically. Our burn injury lawyers have helped many people seek chemical burn at work compensation claims, and have represented individuals who were victims of criminal attacks that caused injury. We approach all cases with sensitivity and understanding, and will work with you to make sure you are kept fully updated throughout the course of your claim.
Yes if you’ve been burned at work and are seeking legal advice on what to do next, we can help. Our team of serious injury lawyers help many people and families who have been injured at work.
Your burn injury claim will be assessed based on the severity and impact of your burn. Burns are categorised on the basis of how seriously an individual’s skin is damaged and the layer of skin affected. We will be able to talk you through this during the course of your claim.
Laceration injury claims cover a wide range of injuries, including:
  • Damage to the skin’s surface;
  • Tears to muscles;
  • Ligament damage;
  • Deep lacerations reaching the bone.
If you have suffered a laceration injury due to someone else’s negligence, our team of personal injury lawyers may be able to help you. The value of your claim will depend on the severity of your injury and other factors such as cause. We recognise that most laceration claims occur as a result of road traffic accidents or accidents at work, but we also understand they can happen in other situations.
As with all personal injury claims, you must bring your claim within three years of the incident taking place. In some cases where criminal injury was the cause for a scar or laceration, this time limit is shortened to two years.
Every scar injury claim or lacerations claim is different, as it will depend on the severity and impact the injury has caused the individual. Permanent facial scar compensation claims will be classed as high severity, and we understand how facial scarring through someone else’s negligence can make you feel. If you wish to pursue a facial scar injury claim with us, we will work closely with you to understand your situation with sensitivity.
