Burns, scars and laceration claims
Employers have a duty to their staff to ensure that they are protected from the risks of burns, scars or lacerations in the workplace. However, such injuries remain an all too common occurrence in the workplace, with numerous employees suffering from some form of injury that leads to burns, scars or lacerations.
Where employers fail to provide adequate protection for their employees, the injuries that result can be extremely painful and distressing. Many injuries can leave permanent scars, resulting in serious physical and psychological pain and distress.
At Irwin Mitchell, we can provide you with expert advice and guidance on making a compensation claim if you have been injured whilst at work.
Expert legal advice on burn injuries
Burns, scars and lacerations can be extremely painful, with many people suffering from severe and in some cases, permanent physical and psychological injury.
Burn injuries are particularly common in professional kitchens but also occur in places such as steelworks and also in environments where staff are expected to work in extreme cold, such as refrigerated warehouses.
Lacerations can occur when a body part comes into contact with a blade or other moving machine part, making them relatively common in many construction based industries.
Scarring can result from both burns and lacerations. Such scarring can represent not only a physical injury but can also cause psychological injury.
