You can claim for either 2nd or 3rd degree burns
Burn injuries are generally divided into three categories – 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree. First degree burns are superficial and affect only the first layer of skin (the epidermis). Second degree burns injure both the first and second layer of skin (the dermis) and third degree burns destroy the epidermis and the dermis and may damage the tissue underneath the skin as well. Both second and third degree burns require immediate medical attention.
If you have suffered a 2nd of 3rd degree burn because of someone else's negligent actions, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. call us on 0808 252 0678 to discuss your enquiry.
What caused your burn?
There are many causes of burn injuries but the most common are heat and thermal burns, which are generally caused by fire, steam, hot objects or hot liquids. Electricity, chemical, radiation and friction are the other leading causes of burn injuries.
Many burns are avoidable and are caused by the negligence of others. Whether an employer, a work colleague, a school or a restaurant have caused you to sustain a second or third degree burn, if negligence can be proven, you may be able to secure compensation. Similarly, if you sustained your burn in car or motorcycle accident that was the faulty of another party you should be able to secure compensation against that person's motor insurance policy.
