Injuries caused by burns and scalds can cause a huge amount of distress, especially if they were caused through no fault of your own.

Risk at home and work
Unfortunately burns are particularly common both at home and at work, and any environment presents an untold amount of danger., If your injuries have been caused by the negligence of a third party, it is important that you have strong legal support to realise your rights under the latest legislation.
Common causes of burns and scalds include:
- Hot objects and liquids
Life after a burn injury
According to a survey by the British Medical Journal (BMJ), UK A&E departments attend to 175,000 burns sufferers per year, 10% of whom need specialist treatment. In addition to this, over 200,000 people visit their GPs with burns each and every year.
The permanent physical and emotional aftermath of this particular type of injury also makes it even more important to pursue justice. Whilst minor injuries can be treated at home, second and third degree burns can result in serious damage to your muscles, nerves and bones.
Severe burns may also require long-term treatment, such as skin grafting and scar therapy. In the most serious of cases, especially where infection becomes a problem, it may be necessary to amputate a limb to prevent further pain and suffering.
