Burn Injury & Scarring Claims

Burn and laceration injuries are painful and distressing and cause scarring which may or may not be permanent.

Burns, either from exposure to heat, electricity or chemicals, are particularly painful, and even a small burn or scald can remain painful for a long period of time. More serious burns and scalds can cause nerve, tendon, ligament and muscle damage, and can result in significant psychological harm and distress.

Burn injuries are common in the workplace and are a particular risk for those working in industrial plants and heavy industry. Laceration injuries are also common in the workplace particularly for those working with machines in a factory or warehouse. They are also common in road accidents involving motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Most scars and burns fade considerably with time and so even after a few months they can appear less obvious and noticeable. If the scarring is still noticeable you may be referred to a Plastic Surgeon who might be able to recommend treatment to reduce the visibility of the scarring.  This may be with a topical treatment, steroids or plastic surgery.  In certain cases physiotherapy can also reduce the appearance of scars.

This is where compensation can help because the range of treatments available to you privately is generally wider than those offered on the NHS. If you have suffered a scarring injury as a result of an accident or injury that was not your fault, then TRUE can help with burn injury and scarring claims to get the compensation you need to help you get on the road to recovery.

  • Agree to represent you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis which means you pay nothing if you lose.
  • Obtain a medical report to assess the injury and to inform what further treatments may improve the appearance of the burn or scar.
  • Arrange any recommended treatments  that might help you to recover more quickly.
  • Recover any out of pocket expenses e.g. loss of earnings, travel expenses, medical expenses.
  • Make sure you receive your maximum entitlement to compensation. We won’t settle for less.

Our Process

1

Submit Your claim – we will establish who was at fault and submit a claim on your behalf.

2

Gather the Evidence and Arrange Treatment – we will collect all of the evidence needed to prove your claim, arrange a medical examination for you, and if appropriate arrange treatment to assist with your recovery.

3

Win Your Claim – we will fight hard on your behalf to recover maximum compensation in the shortest time.

How long will my claim take?

The length of time it takes to settle burn injury and scarring claims depend on 3 factors; whether the other party admits they were at fault, the severity of your injuries, and the amount and complexity of your losses. Burn and scarring injuries can be serious and a final decision about the level of compensation cannot be made until the long term appearance of the scar is known. That said, in more serious injuries, we are generally able to obtain interim payments to relieve any financial hardship.
