Suffering any kind of burn can be incredibly painful and psychologically distressing. If you’ve suffered a burn as a result of somebody else’s negligence, our expert solicitors could help you claim the compensation you deserve. How To Make A Burn Injury Claim Call us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. Our specialists will listen to your story and make a note of where it happened, who you believe to be responsible and how it has affected your life. If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life. If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary. We can process claims for first, second, third and fourth-degree burns (from the first skin layer down to muscle and bone) caused by: Electrical burns Scalding by hot liquid Workplace chemical burns (minor and severe) Chemical burns from acid attacks. Burns can be extremely painful and may need corrective surgery such as skin grafts, or they may even be life-threatening. For burns resulting in life-changing injuries, such as amputation, we offer serious injury specialists to guide you through the rehabilitation process. How Long Do You Have To Make A Burn Injury Claim? If you've suffered a burn injury, you’ll generally have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim. However, there are a few exceptions, for example, criminal assault claims have a two-year time limit. We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible as this gives us the best chance of gathering evidence to support your claim. How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Burn Injury?

Instead, we’ll assess your burn compensation claim based on: The severity of your injury Loss of earnings Secondary effects on your family Rehabilitation Psychological trauma.
