To secure this compensation, the victim may need to take legal action and pursue a claim through the court of law.

If you or someone you know has suffered a burn injury, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention and visit a specialist burn centre or A&E department.

Burn Injury Claims: FAQs

Can I still file a burn injury claim if I was partly at fault for my injury?

Yes, you can still file a burn injury claim – even if you were partially at fault.

In the UK, the law uses a concept of ‘comparative negligence’ to determine compensation in such cases. This means that even if you were partially responsible for the injury, you may still be eligible for compensation, but the amount you receive may be reduced based on your degree of fault.

An OH Parsons personal injury lawyer can assess your case and help you pursue the compensation you are entitled to.

What is the time limit to filing a burn injury claim?

In the UK, the limitation period for issuing court proceedings following a personal or serious injury is typically 3 years.

What evidence is needed to support a burn injury claim?

For a burn injury claim, it is important to gather evidence such as medical records, documentation of medical expenses, proof of lost income, and photographs of the injury. This Is to help support your compensation settlement. It’s advisable to consult a personal injury lawyer at the outset of your claim.

Can OH Parsons help me win compensation for treatment received in a burn centre or burn centres?

Yes, absolutely. Any treatment you received from the burn centre team has the potential to be included as part of your settlement, including visits to physical and occupational therapists and burn rehabilitation.

Burn patients often need extensive burn care (especially in the case of severe burns or third-degree burns); similarly, it’s sometimes necessary to perform reconstructive surgery, or to carry out pain management procedures.

In other words, following a burn, injured patients may require a variety of treatments and/or procedures. Any healthcare that takes place as a result of burn injuries will be taken into consideration during your initial consultation with OH Parsons, and we’ll be able to give you an indication as to the likelihood of compensation success.
