Burns in the Workplace vs Private Places
According to the World Health Organisation, the most common types of burn injury claims at work are accidental mishandling or misuse of chemicals, thermals, and electrical sources, as well as exposure to fire. Hot surfaces, steam, and water above 44C can cause burn injuries.
On the other end of the spectrum, ice burns are also a common type of burn injury that a person can suffer from at work, which could give you grounds for burn at work compensation. Frostbite is a common form of burn injury that those who work at temperatures below -0.55C without adequate protection can be exposed to.
In a private place, a common cause of burn injury claims is through faulty products. This is especially true of electrical products or gas equipment.
Burns Compensation Claim Examples
One example of the kind of burn injury claims we handle would be a man who was injured at work. His employer did not provide him with adequate PPE to minimise the risk of burns. He had to have a skin graft and lost his job as a result of having to take time off.
Another example of a burns injury claim is a man who had a faulty electrical product. The product malfunctioned, causing burns to the man’s arms and hands.
Burns Compensation Ranges
When determining compensation ranges for burn injury claims, solicitors refer to the Judicial College Guidelines. These are guidelines for calculating General Damages, which is used to determine the value of a burn injury claim following the injuries the Claimant has sustained in an accident.
There’s no set burn compensation calculator, but according to the guidelines, for burns covering 40% or more of the body, a person can claim compensation of no less than £83,550.
