Frequently Asked Questions

What Can You Claim For When Filing A Burn Injury Claim?2017-11-08T22:24:44+00:00

If you have suffered a burn injury that was due to somebody else’s negligence you can claim compensation for all expenses incurred for the medical treatment – the immediate treatment to soothe the burns, long term treatment for more severe injuries and even cosmetic surgery if necessary to repair the burn tissues.

You can also claim compensation for the emotional pain and suffering caused by the accident, loss of income from not being able to work due to the burn injury and any other expenses that are directly related to the injury. This may include the cost of alternative transportation, the cost of making structural changes in your home or vehicle to accommodate your injuries.

While compensation for burn injuries typically involves the same types of damages that are included in other personal injury claims, due consideration is given to the fact that burn injuries can be particularly painful and can often lead to severe, permanent disfigurement including scarring.

Causes and Classifications of Burn Injuries2017-11-08T22:23:44+00:00

Some of the more common causes of burn injuries may include:

  • Handling hot surfaces or liquids without proper protection.
  • Exposed electrical wires or improperly insulated electrical equipment.
  • Improper handling of corrosive chemicals.
  • Inappropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Road accidents – faulty equipment and inflation of the airbag are common causes of burn injuries in a road accident.

Burn injuries can be divided into three categories depending on their severity.

  1. First Degree burns – Superficial burns that affect only the first layer of the skin (the epidermis) are classified as ‘First degree burns’.
  2. Second Degree burns – In second degree burns, the first and second layers of the skin (the epidermis and dermis) are injured.
  3. Third Degree burns – Third degree burns are more severe and damage the epidermis, dermis and the tissue lying underneath the skin.

While first degree burns can be soothed by administering first aid measures for burns, second and third degree burns require immediate medical attention.
