Even a small burn or scald can remain painful for a long period of time. More serious burns and scalds can cause nerve damage, tendon, ligament or muscle damage, permanent scarring or can even lead to amputation in the most severe cases.
As well as the physical damages caused by burns there are also the psychological and emotional problems to be taken into consideration particularly when there is scarring. We are experts in securing compensation for clients who have suffered burns as a result of accidents that were not their fault. The settlement will include compensation for pain and suffering, as well as to cover the cost of treatment, medication, surgery and all past and future financial losses.

First-degree burns are the most common and least serious burn which only affects the top layer of skin producing pain and redness. First-degree burns are usually caused by overexposure to the sun (sunburn), brief contact with a hot surface or minor scalding by boiling water or steam.
Second-degree burns affect deeper layers of skin and have a higher risk of infection. They cause the skin to become bright red and produce blisters. People suffering from second-degree burns may also suffer shock due to dehydration.
Third-degree burns penetrate all skin layers and are the most severe, usually requiring skin grafting. These are commonly caused by clothing fire, hot water immersion or direct contact with fire or electricity.
