Serious burns not only cause physical pain and distress but can also leave emotional and psychological damage. If you or a loved one have suffered from a serious burn, our team offers expert legal advice and support moving forward.
How are burns categorised?
Burns are categorised as first, second, third or fourth degree. The degree of the burn will indicate how much medical care and support you will need.
Many of our clients have sustained third- and fourth-degree burns which are often life threatening. These kinds of burns may need corrective surgery such skin grafts or even amputation. Patients who have sustained a third or a fourth-degree burn will also require support beyond physical recovery.
We take everything into account when deciding the best support packages for you to enable the best chance of recovery.
We often see burns which have resulted from:
- Hot liquid
- Acid attacks
- Workplace chemicals
