How to Claim Compensation for Serious Burn Injuries at Work

If you’ve suffered a burn injury in the workplace, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

When suffering the after-effects of a non-fault accident, you may be in significant pain from your injuries and hugely unsettled as a result, especially if the accident was due to the negligence of your employer. A feeling of injustice, but not knowing how to go about holding an entity to account is perfectly understandable.

That’s where a personal injury compensation claim can prove beneficial to you as you seek to get back to a semblance of normality in the future.

Employers and burn injuries at work

Many employees tend to feel nervous about making a claim against their own employer and the possible ramifications.

But it is important to note that the business must have insurance in place that caters for these scenarios and so will not be directly financially affected by any claim, other than a potential rise in the premiums they pay for this cover.

It’s the insurance company that pays a potential compensation amount, so any employee fears should be allayed if they think their actions could negatively impact their company’s financial outlook.

An employer, by law, cannot sack one of their employees or treat them unfavourably for bringing a claim against them, another common concern among those considering a claim.
